Jul 1, 2009
TechWeb today announced VoiceCon San Francisco 2009, the leading enterprise communications event, taking place November 2-5, 2009 in the Moscone North Convention Center. VoiceCon San Francisco 2009 will focus on the ongoing evolution in enterprise communications to IP Telephony and Unified Communications systems, software and services. Reflecting the growing complementary relationship between communications and business applications, TechWeb's Enterprise 2.0 San Francisco will be collocated with VoiceCon. Enterprise 2.0 is the leading event for companies looking to transform their business through social computing and the adoption of Web 2.0 tools and technologies.

"Enterprises have seen a steady migration from single-purpose voice, data and video networks to converged IP-based communications," said Fred Knight, VoiceCon General Manager. "With the ongoing evolution of Unified Communications it's clear that new and exciting tools for collaboration will have to work with the enterprise communications platforms. That's exactly why collocating Enterprise 2.0 with VoiceCon makes so much sense for our respective attendees and exhibitors."
"Businesses are starting to understand the value that Web 2.0 and social computing tools can bring for a competitive edge through greater productivity," said Steve Wylie, Enterprise 2.0 General Manager. "But there is much work ahead in integrating these tools with an enterprise communications framework. Collocating VoiceCon and Enterprise 2.0 allows us to explore the possibilities of a truly connected enterprise where communications and social business applications come together."
The VoiceCon conference is recognized as the leading event for enterprise decision-makers to evaluate options for migrating to and leveraging IP Telephony, Converged Networks and Unified Communications. VoiceCon San Francisco presents a unique opportunity to speak with experts, listen to the lessons learned by enterprises already making the migration, network with peers and see leading-edge products displayed on the show floor. The VoiceCon Conference Program will address six key overarching issues:
-- Planning and Implementing IP Telephony and Converged Networks -- Unified Communications -- Managing Staff, Technology & Costs -- Communications Applications and Application Development -- Mobility/Wireless Communications -- Next-Gen Communications Technologies
VoiceCon is both a conference and an exhibition, and VoiceCon San Francisco will present the major equipment suppliers and service providers in enterprise IP Telephony and Unified Communications. The VoiceCon Exhibition is the only place to see the vendors you need in one location. Among the companies exhibiting are Diamond Sponsors Avaya and Siemens; Platinum Sponsor Polycom; Gold Sponsor Aastra; and Silver Sponsors 911 Enable, Aceyus, Interactive Intelligence, NET, Psytechnics and SecureLogix.
