Implementing Zoom Across Your Enterprise
May 12, 2021
In 2020, enterprise organizations, individual teams, and users adopted Zoom in record numbers to help workers collaborate in the face of the pandemic. Now, in 2021, enterprises are exploring the next step: standardizing on Zoom as a complete collaboration platform solution. And not just for desktop video, but for conference rooms, telephony, chat, and the full range of productivity-enhancing tools needed to serve a dispersed and dynamic workforce.
To help you understand how to plan and execute an enterprise-wide migration to Zoom as your core collaboration platform, Enterprise Connect will present a free virtual summit. These information-filled events will feature independent experts familiar with implementing solutions across an enterprise organization, offering a deep dive on the challenges and opportunities your enterprise will face as you standardize on Zoom.
Opening Session: Voice of the Enterprise

The past 12 – 15 months have been a learning experience for enterprise IT/collaboration professionals: We’ve learned what end users like and don’t like, and what succeeded for them in remote work. In this session, a panel of enterprise IT/collaboration leaders will share their organizations’ lessons, and build on these to describe what they need in order to meet the business challenges of a post-pandemic enterprise. Our panelists will discuss what features and functions they’re asking their vendors for, and how they hope to translate these into benefits for their users and business. You’ll come away with a clearer idea of how to propel your enterprise ahead with the next generation of collaboration platforms.
