LOS ANGELES, September 30, 2020 – Broadvoice®, an award-winning provider of hosted voice, unified communications (UC) and SIP trunking services for businesses, announced today that CEO Jim Murphy will speak on how cloud is changing enterprise communications at TMT M&A Forum USA 2020, the annual event for senior dealmakers in the Technology, Media And Telecommunications (TMT) space.
Hosted by global financial news provider TMT Finance, the virtual event will help U.S.-focused dealmakers identify, explore and deliver successful infrastructure and services investment strategies beyond COVID-19.
Murphy will join a panel of experts for the virtual session, “Cloud Communications: How is the Cloud Changing Enterprise Communications?” at 9 a.m. EST on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.
“The global pandemic has accelerated adoption of cloud PBX and UC as a business continuity solution, enabling work anywhere, including work from home,” said Murphy. “Cloud communications has proved itself as an essential service under the worst of circumstances and in so doing gained champions among many of the world’s largest enterprises, whose leaders are now rethinking ‘the office.’ The groundswell of subscriptions is not a temporary spike, but the beginning of a long and prosperous future for the cloud communications industry.”
Additional topics of discussion are how communications providers can capitalize on the move to cloud-based solutions, what subsectors have the greatest potential for growth and investment, and the prospects for continued consolidation in the market.
