Twitter Chat: How Communications APIs Are Shaping the Future

Join our live Enterprise Connect Twitter chat on Wednesday, March 1, from 3 to 4 p.m. 2017 has been called the year of the developer -- a statement that's hard to argue with as we see communications APIs and communications platform as a service (CPaaS) continue to gain mindshare in the enterprise. So how does an organization proactively plan for the rise of communications APIs and CPaaS? To help, we've asked Mark Winther (@markwinther), group vice president and consulting partner at IDC, to join us for a Twitter chat tomorrow, March 1. He'll be on hand from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. What is the relationship between communications APIs and CPaaS? What are the differences between using communications APIs and traditional communications systems? How about the buy vs. build debate -- how do you know when to go with UCaaS versus CPaaS? ET, and get your questions in front of one of the leading subject matter experts on communications APIs and CPaaS. He'll be leading the sessions, "Communications APIs: What They Are, Why They're Hot," "The Role of CPaaS in Mobilizing Enterprises," and "When to Use Communications APIs -- and When Not To."

Well, an obvious answer would be registering for and attending Enterprise Connect, taking place March 27-30 in Orlando, Fla., as we have a full track aimed at demystifying communications APIs for enterprise IT leaders. The track comprises informative sessions like “When to Use Communications APIs — and When Not To,” a case studies session, and an industry executive mainstage panel, “APIs and Embedded Communications: The Wave of the Future?
