    This year's Enterprise Connect RFP workshop will be dedicated to Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) offerings, in "pure" form and in a hybrid with premises systems. Workshop leader Dave Stein of Stein Technology Group consulting will once again craft a mock RFP for communications service for a medium-sized enterprise, but this year will seek responses from UCaaS providers, so as to provide a deep dive on the state of the art in UCaaS features, functions, and pricing. Enterprise Connect Orlando 2016 attendees will receive both a detailed view on how to write an RFP for UCaaS services, and will see the responses provided by major players in this space. You'll come away from this workshop with a rich supply of documentation, as well as a detailed description and discussion that will help you understand how mature today's UCaaS services are; how they stack up against each other; to what extent they may transform your communications environment; and how providers can support migration and hybrid strategies.


    * What elements are important for creating and evaluating responses to an RFP for UCaaS services?

    * What features and functions are available in UCaaS services? Are they equivalent to what's available in CPE?

    * How do you determine the elements of a hybrid UCaaS/premises deployment?

    * What range of costs do we find among UCaaS providers?

    * How can we use these cost estimations to evaluate TCO for UCaaS proposals?
