My name is Farzin Shahidi. I am CEO of NextPlane, Inc. I am a big believer of unified communication and its impact on how we communicate and collaborate. However, unlike email, Enterprise Instant Messaging (EIM) and Presence information does not traverse beyond corporate boundaries. As a result, organization can not establish secure presence-based collaboration via their Unified Communications (UC) platforms with partners, customers, vendors, and others.
The purpose of this blog is to educate organization on unified communication federations and what it means to them.
