Location: E142 Level: Novice

Unified communications (UC) aims to reduce human latency in business processes by linking different technologies (CRM, IM, mobile, and others) together to provide new services. In this session, we will discuss Druid, designed from the ground up to be UC software platform that organizations can easily deploy and use for their communications. We will also discuss other services that Druid can provide on top, including creative collaborative applications (XMPP, CRM integration) and mobile applications (Blackberry, iPhone), and other potential ideas.
