6 Key Business Benefits Of UCaaS Show Why Businesses Need It Now

Communicating at work should be as simple as pulling up a chair, anywhere. Knowledge workers carry the essential communication tools with them: cellphones, laptops and their inquisitive minds. In their daily lives outside of work, video, instant messaging and consumer cloud apps help today's people share information with friends and family. Teams now want to apply similar tools to be more productive at work. Knowledge workers who bring their own mobile devices to work can be more effective and save the company hardware expenses--but only if their office messages, files and contacts stay in sync, and their valuable data is safe within the network. While small- and medium-sized businesses' (SMB's) telecommunications networks have become more proficient at serving more devices and connecting them to the cloud, they may not be able to offer the effective bandwidth increase, speed and security required. For next-generation telecommunications providers, the new Unified Communications (UC) solutions will be as transformative as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) was a decade ago. Now, Unified Communications as a Service, or UCaaS, makes telecom the backbone for real-time video conferencing, screen sharing presence and instant messaging. SMB's use online collaboration services to relay messages clearly and move discussion along without buffering or other video streaming quality issues. A capable network brings a far-flung team together regardless of geographical boundaries and keeps them engaged in solving business problems instead of fixing conference-line glitches. They can contribute to a meeting on the way to the office, and enter a virtual conference room ready to share slides, various document types, graphics, charts and much more. Making the case: Lower costs with UCaaS The current business climate makes upgrading a communications network particularly challenging. Gartner this year forecasts flat IT spending worldwide--and that's actually an improvement on early estimates. For that reason, IT managers turn to economical UCaaS solutions. These hosted UC services make full use of cloud capabilities to extend communication resources. They share six major advantages: 1. No upfront expenses. UCaaS shifts a business's cost of designing solutions in an increasing complex space to an experienced service provider. Leased phones and equipment allow companies to adopt new technologies and set up shop in new locations without worrying about features becoming outdated. 2. Reduced operating costs. Shared data centers deliver PBX service more efficiently than onsite infrastructure. The company does not have to find rack space, pay energy bills or configure and manage connections. 3. Smart use of staff resources: Manpower's annual Talent Shortage survey confirms that engineers and technicians are among the hardest jobs to fill. Managed services has hard-to-recruit IT staff on hand and ready to devote to mission-critical initiatives. 4. Scalable provisioning: Companies can start small, deploy and move resources where they're needed, pull back once a project wraps up or add features as needs change. 5. Enhanced security. As cloud-based services, service providers have stringent measures in place to monitor networks for known threats and potential vulnerabilities. At Call One, our UCaaS services are securely hosted in the cloud and updated against the latest security threats giving the SMB customers piece of mind. 6. Pay as you go: Businesses get predictable flat-fee pricing for only the features they use, with a consolidated bill that simplifies accounting. Making the choice: UCaaS prepares for the future The business case for UCaaS is growing more urgent. IDC predicts that by 2020 nearly three-quarters of the U.S. workforce will use mobile technology. Companies that make provisions for telecommuting save money that they can devote to other resources, reduce their office space needs and give their employees the ability to work remotely and be closer to their clients. Communication needs will grow quickly as companies adopt voice controls, beacons and sensors in the Internet of Things. Converged networks will allow workers to cover more ground with fewer onsite visits. As the number of remote connected sites expands, the ability to collaborate will become a more pressing need for UCaaS. UCaaS holds an especially strong value proposition for small and midsize businesses, according to Gartner research. The pace of cloud innovation and the lack of internal expertise put onsite solutions at a real disadvantage. As a result, customer service and support are, and will continue to be, key factors in choosing a hosted UCaaS solution. A UCaaS partner should have a track record of working with new technologies, deploying solutions quickly and easily, responding to security threats and demonstrating their return on investment. The ways we communicate have rapidly changed in the past decade. VoIP and cloud systems are not the last steps in their evolution. Unified Communications offers a framework that will help business deliver on the promise of a more collaborative and productive workplace. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

How Germany's World War I Stormtroopers Became Human Tanks

Michael Peck Security, Europe Could this have won the war for the Kaiser?  The word "stormtrooper" has a funny reputation. It conjures memories of brownshirted Nazi thugs terrorizing Jews, or images of Darth Vader's white-armored henchmen in Star Wars. But in 1918, stormtroopers were Germany's human equivalent of the tank. A two-legged weapon that almost brought victory to Germany in World War I. The origins of the stormtroopers, or stosstruppen (assault troops), began in the trench warfare of World War I. Within months after the war began in August 1914, the Western Front had fossilized into 450 miles of trenches stretching from the Belgian coast to the Swiss border. No matter, said the generals. Our glorious infantry will smash through them with a bayonet charge. But the PBI (Poor Bloody Infantry) soon realized they were mere sheep for the slaughter against machine guns and barbed wire. No matter, said the generals. We shall simply annihilate the enemy with a massive artillery barrage -- as in the 1.5 million shells that preceded the British 1916 Somme offensive -- and then the infantry shall merely have to stroll forward to occupy the ground. Instead, the enemy waited in their underground dugouts until the barrage lifted before emerging to mow down the attacking infantry. After a while, the Western Front had degenerated into a mere struggle for attrition, the most futile form of warfare. Strategy at bloodbaths like Verdun consisted of flinging enough firepower to kill more of the enemy than they killed of you. Mahatma Gandhi may have been a pacifist, but he understood the problem better than the military professionals when he said "an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." By 1917, with both sides running low on manpower and in national willingness to sacrifice their men, a better way was needed. Some method that would break the deadlock before the combatants attrited each other into national extinction. Fortunately, while war is horrible, it is also dynamic. Stalemates are eventually broken, either because one side gives up, both sides make peace, or a military solution is found. In 1917-18, both the Allies and Germans found a way to break out of the stranglehold of trench warfare. Read full article

The Obama Administration Needs to Stop Fueling the War in Yemen

Daniel R. DePetris Security, Middle East Time for a change in approach.  If the United States Government required more concrete evidence that war crimes are being committed in Yemen on a near daily basis, then last weekend’s reported Saudi airstrike on a building full of mourners should finally put the debate to rest. The attack, which health officials in the Yemeni capital say was caused by three or four missiles fired on the funeral compound, killed approximately 140 people and left over 500 others wounded. The footage taken immediately after the blasts showed an apocalyptic scene, with charred bodies, body parts scattered around the venue, twisted metal, small fires, and the screams of survivors and rescue workers ferrying the wounded to the nearest hospital. The scale of the carnage was so overwhelming that calls were broadcast over the radio begging for civilians to come to the nearest hospital or clinic to donate blood. These kinds of attacks on civilians and civilian objects have been occurring throughout eighteen months of warfare that has torn apart a country that was already the region’s poorest and least developed.  Indeed, an armed conflict that the Saudi-led Arab coalition initiated in March 2015 with a clear and specific mandate — transplant Yemeni President Abd Rabo Mansour Hadi back into the presidential palace — has deteriorated into a quagmire that is barely moving the battlefield geometry. The anti-Houthi coalition’s ability to ride their early momentum has stalled as the war shifted further north, where Houthi influence was far stronger and more consolidated.  What we are left with is an Arab version of the Vietnam War — a much more superior military in terms of firepower, technology, and manpower unable to dislodge or defeat a movement with at least some amount of grassroots support.

When Did Our Elites Become Self-Serving Parasites?

Submitted by Charles Hugh-Smith via OfTwoMinds blog, Combine financialization, neoliberalism and moral bankruptcy, and you end up with self-serving parasitic elites. When did our financial and political elites become self-serving parasites? Some will answer that elites have always been self-serving parasites; as tempting as it may be to offer a blanket denunciation of elites, this overlooks the eras in which elites rose to meet existential crises. Following in Ancient Rome's Footsteps: Moral Decay, Rising Wealth Inequality(September 30, 2015) As historian Peter Turchin explained in his book War and Peace and War: The Rise and Fall of Empires, the value of sacrifice was a core characteristic of the early Republic's elite: "Unlike the selfish elites of the later periods, the aristocracy of the early Republic did not spare its blood or treasure in the service of the common interest. When 50,000 Romans, a staggering one fifth of Rome’s total manpower, perished in the battle of Cannae, as mentioned previously, the senate lost almost one third of its membership. This suggests that the senatorial aristocracy was more likely to be killed in wars than the average citizen….   The wealthy classes were also the first to volunteer extra taxes when they were needed… A graduated scale was used in which the senators paid the most, followed by the knights, and then other citizens. In addition, officers and centurions (but not common soldiers!) served without pay, saving the state 20 percent of the legion’s payroll.   The richest 1 percent of the Romans during the early Republic was only 10 to 20 times as wealthy as an average Roman citizen." Now compare that to the situation in Late Antiquity Rome when "an average Roman noble of senatorial class had property valued in the neighborhood of 20,000 Roman pounds of gold. There was no “middle class” comparable to the small landholders of the third century B.C.; the huge majority of the population was made up of landless peasants working land that belonged to nobles. These peasants had hardly any property at all, but if we estimate it (very generously) at one tenth of a pound of gold, the wealth differential would be 200,000! Inequality grew both as a result of the rich getting richer (late imperial senators were 100 times wealthier than their Republican predecessors) and those of the middling wealth becoming poor." Do you see any similarities with the present-day realities depicted in these charts?   Correspondent Jim B. summarized historian Arnold Toynbee's study of the rise and fall of civilizations: "Civilizations fail when their elites change from an admired dynamic creative class to a despised Establishment of corrupt rentiers, an entrenched governing class unfit to govern." I would trace the slide into self-serving parasites to three dynamics: financialization, neoliberalism and moral bankruptcy. While definitions of financialization vary, mine is: Financialization is the mass commodification of debt and debt-based financial instruments collaterized by previously low-risk assets, a pyramiding of risk and speculative gains that is only possible in a massive expansion of low-cost credit and leverage.   Another way to describe the same dynamics is: financialization results when leverage and information asymmetry replace innovation and productive investment as the source of wealth creation. Neoliberalism is the belief that the social order is defined and created by markets: if markets are free, participants, society and the political order are also free. This conceptual framework is the perfect enabler for the dominance of credit-based, leveraged capital, i.e. Neofeudalism. In a "free market," those with access to nearly-free money can outbid everyone who must rely on savings from earned income to finance borrowing. In a "free market" where those with access to leverage and unlimited credit are more equal than everyone else, the ability of wage earners to acquire rentier assets such as rental housing, farmland and timberland is intrinsically limited by the financial system that makes credit and leverage scarce for the many and abundant for the few. The moral bankruptcy of our financial and political elites is self-evident. Combine financialization, neoliberalism and moral bankruptcy, and you end up with self-serving parasitic elites.

Кто кормит Украину: моряки

От автора блога. Очередной материал о том, кто является настоящим валютным кормильцем Украины. Среди заробитчан, есть одна категория, граждан Украины, которые были ее гордостью. Как и 25 лет назад, они кормят не только свои семьи, но и стали сегодня одним из основных поставщиков валюты в страну.Украина в 2015 г. заняла 6-е место по количеству моряков, работающих на глобальном рынке. Суммарно 69 тыс моряков пересылают в Украину около $1 млрд за год.Об этом сообщают "Порты Украины" со ссылкой на данные отчета Manpower Report.В Украине такие исследования не проводятся, а на вроде бы простой вопрос, сколько украинских моряков работает на судах мирового морского флота, в разных инстанциях можно получить самые разные ответы. Например, весной нынешнего года Мининфраструктуры официально озвучило цифру – 150 тыс. Столько украинских моряков, по мнению министерства, сегодня работает на флоте.Manpower Report 2016 от BIMCO и ICS называет совсем другие цифры. По данным доклада, в Украине значатся моряками 234 923 человека, но при этом реально на флот в 2015 году было поставлено 69 000 моряков, в том числе 39 000 офицеров и 30 000 рядовых. По сути дела речь здесь идет о числе рабочих мест, которые были заняты украинскими моряками в 2015 г.По сообщению газеты Manila Times, данные исследования Комиссии по делам филиппинцев за рубежом (CFO), показывают, что каждый из работавших в 2015 году на иностранных судах филиппинских моряков привез (переслал) в свою страну в среднем $15,5 тыс.Если взять за относительно достоверную цифру украинских моряков в 69 000 из Manpower Report 2016 и умножить на $15,5 тыс., то получится $1069,5 млн. Это по валютному курсу на начало года – примерно 26,7 млрд грн. Если же сделать поправку на то, что среди украинских моряков большая часть – офицеры, а у филиппинцев – рядовые, цифра окажется существенно больше.Но даже эти 26,7 млрд грн – это огромная сумма. Это, например, много больше, чем 19 млрд грн доходов, которые получили в 2015 г. все государственные предприятия морского транспорта Украины вместе взятые, включая 13 морских торговых портов.26,7 млрд грн – это равно 5% госбюджета Украины в 2015 г. или 1,3% ВВП Украины в том же году.
