    Unified Communications: The Layman's Guide

    The hodgepodge of communication modes, applications and devices can make it challenging for people to connect properly. Unified communications attempts to tackle this challenge by letting companies manage voice mail, faxes, email and video from a single inbox using a single set of management controls. Disparate communication systems are linked together, allowing users to interact independent of device or media.

    In "Unified Communications: The Layman's Guide," contributing Ziff Davis analyst Cindy Waxer breaks down unified communications by defining it, explaining how it works, discussing ROI and UC challenges in an organization, and answering questions IT leaders need to ask before deployment.

    Why Every IT Practitioner Should Care About Network Change & Configuration Management

    Network administrators know that downtime can cost their company dearly. On average, businesses lose between $84,000 and $108,000 for every hour of IT system downtime, according to recent estimates from Gartner, Forrester and IT analysis firms. In most cases, service outages are caused by configuration errors, which could easily be prevented with better network change and configuration management tools. These tools allow administrators to easily reconfigure and change elements in their networks, backup device configurations, compare configurations and receive real time alerts when configurations change.

    In the past, network change and configuration practices required distinct knowledge of network devices, command line interface (CLI) scripting and long hours of often-tedious work. With today's toolset, however, network changes and configurations can be nearly effortless in terms of deployment and upkeep. Network change and configuration tools have a substantial and rapid return on investment - most businesses see a payback within months.
