The Interactive Multimedia and Collaborative Communications Alliance (IMCCA), a non-profit industry association for unified communication and collaboration (UCC), is hosting a webcast on February 24 to discuss the ways in which the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has been the catalyst for a permanent change in how organizations and individuals will work and collaborate going forward.
The IMCCA Collaboration Week: A Whole New World Webcast, occurring in lieu of the originally planned UC Week New York, will include three panel discussions by industry experts who will offer insights into what this new world will look like.
Part One will be how we arrived at where we are, and what the data shows organizations are doing. Part Two will be all about the “new office”—a space in which group work and collaboration are the predominant activity. The majority of desks, offices and workstations will be for people who have dropped by to participate in that group work. Part Three will be a detailed analysis of the new home office for the full-time or part-time remote worker, now known as hybrid working. It will detail what will go into the technology and setup to make that experience successful.
The Collaboration Week: A Whole New World Webcast will be emceed by Carol Zelkin, who is Executive Director of the IMCCA, and by David Danto, who is Director of Emerging Technologies for the IMCCA. Discussion presenters and moderators will include Metrigy’s Irwin Lazar; Shen, Milsom & Wilke’s Mark Peterson; and Recon Research’s Ira Weinstein. Many prestigious UC organizations have signed on as sponsors of the event, including Crestron, Mersive, Pexip and Poly. Additional speakers and sponsors are being announced daily.
The Collaboration Week: A Whole New World Webcast is scheduled to begin at 11am EST on February 24. Registration is available online at www.collaborationweekny.org. Those registered will be sent a personalized link to join and will be eligible to win prizes in a random drawing, including a new Poly Studio P5 Kit.
