    As communications become more software-based and API-enabled, many people have hoped this could lead to greater "contextual" functionality -- that is, providing the hooks that let communications systems integrate information on user location, situation, and more, in real time. This could potentially help customer service reps, dispatchers, and others respond appropriately to users based on information that the system knows about them right now. While contextual communications never materialized in past generations, today three emerging technologies could help make it a reality: WebRTC, communications APIs, and advanced analytics.

    This session will describe in detail how these three technologies could make contextual communications practical in the near future, and will explain the role of communications APIs and other companion technologies in making it happen. You'll leave the session with a vision for what your enterprise would need to do to implement contextual communications to benefit the business.


    • What's the state of the art for contextual communications?
    • What roles do communications APIs, WebRTC, and advanced analytics play in delivering meaningful context?
    • What back-end technologies and architectures must be in place to support context-based communications?
    • How should trust and privacy concerns factor into a contextual communications strategy? What other hurdles might an enterprise encounter?
    • What are some current and future business use cases for contextual communications?
