An IMF member is looking to discuss the  Avaya/RingCentral solution, they vetted, tested, and implemented last summer (2021).  Initial challenges were mostly around change management and training. The soft phones and mobile app phones have worked very well since implemented.  As the return from office continued, they started noticing some challenges with the way administrative assistants were interacting with the executive team (features) as well as some Quality of Service (QoS) issues.  As we work to resolve the QoS issues, the “features” challenges have been exacerbating the experience, causing the overall solution to lose credibility in the perception of the organization. They would like to speak with other members who have a similar experience as well as others who have implemented alternative technologies.

"Moving at the Speed of Start-Up"

These days, everyone talks about transformation. But what happens when you have a billion dollar start-up and you are creating a brand new CIO organization and a brand new core business system architecture from scratch?  I will discuss the difference between the “clone and cleanup later” approach vs the “greenfield” approach.  Also, we would include our approach/philosophy re: change management vis-à-vis our core business systems and workplace technology (apps and collaboration tools).
