    VOSS Shares Plans for Cisco HCS Partners as Cisco Announces End of Life for CUCDM

    VOSS-4-UC Unlocks Potential for HCS Partners to Compete Effectively for Growing UCaaS Market

    Tuesday August 14, 2018 - Richardson, TX - Today, VOSS Solutions issued guidance to Cisco HCS partners following Cisco’s announcement that Cisco UCDM (Unified Communications Domain Manager) will reach end of sale in February 2019.

    In Cisco’s announcement dated August 14 2018, the CUCDM product lifecycle will end in February 2019. CUCDM has already been removed from all Cisco HCS perpetual bundles, but is still available as an independent SKU. However, the list price for the independent CUCDM SKU is now approximately four times the price of the previous HCS bundle.

    Mike Frayne, CEO at VOSS Solutions, commented; "Our message to CUCDM users is to not panic. The end of life of CUCDM does not mean that HCS partners have to follow an immediate rip-and-replace 'revolution' of their UC management component. VOSS empowers HCS partners to take control; to choose the best transition path for their business and to dictate their own transition timeframe".

    A key factor of the VOSS transition offering is that, with the wealth of experience that VOSS has gathered over 12 years of providing the CUCDM technology to Cisco and working with the HCS partner community, VOSS is able to take over the support of CUCDM licenses immediately, to provide a continued service to HCS partners while they decide on the future of their UC management component. Importantly, VOSS is the only provisioning partner in the Cisco ecosystem that is offering unconditional free trade-in for all existing CUCDM licenses. Furthermore, VOSS is the only vendor that will allow HCS partners to immediately acquire VOSS-4-UC licenses that deliver the same functionality that CUCDM provides, to help HCS partners avoid absorbing the significant price increase associated with CUCDM.

    One concern for Cisco HCS partners will be the risk involved in transitioning their HCS platform to a new UC management tool, and the migration of their customers from one platform to another. With so many users, devices and services to consider, and with so much data in the live environment, this will be no mean feat.

    VOSS has been operating a H.O.M.E program for the last 18 months, carefully guiding major HCS partners away from CUCDM and onto the VOSS-4-UC management platform. When HCS partners take the decision to move to VOSS-4-UC, they will receive all the existing functionality that is currently in CUCDM plus so much more, while minimizing the impact on service continuity. VOSS-4-UC includes many additional features, such as coordinated management for Webex Teams Hybrid, customized UC management to better align with operational processes and integrate with back office systems, and also UC management of both Cisco, Broadsoft, and Microsoft UC. With VOSS, HCS partners will benefit from new modules, such as VOSS Assurance & Analytics for monitoring, troubleshooting, data mining, and access to contextual insight and improved reporting.

    Henry Barton, VP Operations Strategy at VOSS, added; "After purchasing licenses from VOSS, HCS partners follow a structured and highly automated transition program; migrating phones, devices and users over to the new UC management platform seamlessly and with minimum impact to end customers. We have done this many times already, so HCS partners can expect a a robust and proven process that delivers the value of the of the new platform while minimizing the impact on the partner and their customers".

    A key driver for HCS partners to choose VOSS-4-UC is their growing interest in differentiating their offering to the UCaaS market. All end customers that choose to consume their UC as a service expect the cost and time-saving benefits of a standard cloud-based solution, but also require a certain level of customization to suit their business processes and workflows.

    With more than 100 adaptations delivered to HCS partners to date, VOSS enables an organization to tailor the sophisticated VOSS-4-UC operations management platform to suit the specific needs of the business, without complex, labor-intensive coding or the associated time and budget implications. These adaptations mean that Cisco HCS partners can easily differentiate their UCaaS offering, to create custom UC environments that suit particular business cases, depending on their customers' size, industry, and geography.

    To date, 33% of the organizations that have production HCS platforms have made the decision to transition from CUCDM to VOSS-4-UC. As a result, more than 1.2 million production end user devices (EUDs) have already moved from CUCDM to be managed in production by VOSS-4-UC. In total, there are active transition plans to move 50% of all the production HCS EUDs to a VOSS-4-UC managed platform.

    Mike Frayne concluded; "HCS partners have existing customers on their platforms and they need to provide them with continuity under the contracts they have in place with these customers. As a result, HCS partners need a strategy to deal with CUCDM no longer being available over time, and a transition plan that not only mitigates the risks and minimizes the impact on their customers and operational capabilities, but also maintains their margins by avoiding having to buy new licenses to replace CUCDM or pay more for CUCDM functionality. VOSS is uniquely positioned to help manage this business continuity and at the same time provide enhanced capabilities to both improve but simultaneously maintain their end customers’ experience. VOSS-4-UC is the leading UC management vendor and is able to deliver the additional features and capabilities the market needs, while managing the transitional risks so that HCS partners can evolve to the new HCS reference architecture in a controlled, seamless manner."

    Node4 Goes Live with First Customers on VOSS-4-UC, Best-in-Class Collaboration Solution for Medium Enterprises and SMEs

    Wednesday, July 25, 2018 – Reading, UK – Today, VOSS Solutions announced that Node4 has become the latest organisation to go live on the VOSS-4-UC management platform.

    Launched in 2004, Node4 is a leading UK-based Managed Service Provider, offering scalable end-to-end IT solutions, all fully-managed and deployed over its own infrastructure. Node4’s competencies include colocation, managed hosting, cloud servers, WAN connectivity, SIP trunking, and hosted UC telephony.

    In April 2018, Node4 announced that it had selected VOSS-4-UC to manage its cloud collaboration solution, offering a single pane to manage Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS), Shared Architecture and WebEx Teams, and replacing the existing Cisco Unified Communications Domain Management (CUCDM). Today, VOSS Solutions has confirmed that Node4 is now fully operational with VOSS-4-UC, with live customers operating on the service. The migration to VOSS-4-UC from CUCDM took less than three months from build through to go-live, and was completed with minimal service disruption to ongoing operations.

    The migration process itself made use of VOSS Overbuild, a VOSS-4-UC capability in which existing customer configurations can be synchronised and built onto the service, without the need to re-enter configuration data. This makes for a fast, non-disruptive and error-free onboarding experience, with data at all times kept within Node4’s secure data centres.

    Node4 is one of the first VOSS customers to deploy the latest generation of VOSS-4-UC software (V18.1), thereby taking advantage of the VOSS Business Administration Portal that is included as standard in the release. Business Administration Portal provides an easy-to-use and intuitive interface that enables customer self-service and delegated administration, putting customers in control through a much easier and dynamic MACD process.

    Mark Phelps, Collaboration Product Manager at Node4, commented; "The VOSS-4-UC Business Administration Portal allows Node4 to extend the benefits of a top tier cloud collaboration solution to medium enterprises and SMEs, whilst at the same time allowing these customers to stay in control. We are able to delegate administration and empower customer self-service, speed time to resolution of service changes, and provide a much more satisfying end user experience."

    Derek Lipscombe, Director at VOSS Solutions, added; "The VOSS and Node4 teams have worked so well together. This is a dynamic partnership that has created and launched the new VOSS-4-UC platform quickly. Node4 now has a very compelling UC offer for the medium enterprise market and I am sure they will be highly successful."

    Now that VOSS-4-UC is operational, Node4 benefits from a single workflow interface, provisioning a complete build of a typical customer in under 30 minutes. The solution provides:

    • Much faster customer on-boarding
    • Quicker MACD administration – putting customers in control
    • Automated workflows to fuel productivity
    • Better end user experience for customers and admin teams

    Microsoft Inspire - Driving Opportunity

    Christopher Martini, VP, VOSS Solutions

    As July comes to a close, Microsoft partners around the world find themselves in a familiar position: Returning home from the annual worldwide partner conference ("Inspire") and trying to unpack the conversations, business cards, receipts, marketing messages, reorganizations and exciting opportunities that generally follow Microsoft's largest partner event of the year.

    This year brought tens of thousands of us from around the world to Las Vegas, so that we could look for opportunities to engage with Microsoft and each other, to grow our respective businesses. VOSS attended the conference again this year, and we were fortunate enough to have customers and partners joining us from literally every corner of the world.

    The 2018 conference lacked the blockbuster announcement that we may have seen in years past; there was no major change to the way that Microsoft will engage partners, and no flagship products have had the kind of overhaul we saw with the Skype for Business to Teams evolution, but there was still an awful lot to be excited about.

    Microsoft made a flurry of announcements leading up to the event, including the release of a free version of Microsoft Teams. This new version supports up to 300 users and is currently available in 40 languages. Clearly, this is a compelling offer for organizations who may have been considering Slack. Providing a robust solution in a freemium model will certainly help Microsoft grow the installed base, while giving ecosystem partners more opportunities to sell compelling services around the Teams product.

    As a partner and former Microsoft employee who has attended this event too many times to mention, it was surprising to note how narrow the enthusiasm gap is between Microsoft and its partners when it comes to Teams. Generally, Microsoft introduces a new product and declares that it will soon be the standard that customers will want, and as a result, partners should be developing offers and solutions to meet this expected demand. Partners, on the other hand, are generally more pragmatic and driven by deals in the pipeline. As a result, you can generally expect there to be quite a gap between what Microsoft is excited about, and what partners are actively selling. This is especially true with new products, as opposed to new versions of old products. Teams, on the other hand, may be experiencing some benefits associated with the S4B evolution. Partners are almost universally convinced that Teams will be a hit for Microsoft, and the majority that I spoke with are actively engaged in going after the opportunity.

    From VOSS’ standpoint, this is an exciting development on a number of levels. First and foremost, our flagship product, VOSS-4-UC, is already able to support Microsoft Teams. In addition, the customer journey to Teams will require organizations to make a variety of decisions that we are uniquely qualified to help them with: Which users require which services? What is the best deployment model for our organization? What do we do with our existing deployment? Are there features or functionality that we currently leverage which could cause issues when we make the move to Teams? VOSS looks forward to helping our customers make sense of their options, and deploy the best solution based on their unique needs.

    In addition, Microsoft made some compelling announcements in the Analytics space. Workplace Analytics and MyAnalytics Nudges demonstrate that Microsoft is looking for new and interesting ways to mine meaningful insight from the mountain of data that modern UC environments generate. While there was a solid amount of enthusiasm around these announcements, there is a critical part of the story that Microsoft is unable to address: Most enterprises rely on more than one vendor to deliver their UC solution. As a result, vendor-specific solutions like those from Microsoft and Cisco, will only ever deliver part of the story for customers. VOSS is excited to have a solution in place today that pulls the entire story together. Our customers and partners are delivering the best service that they can - across vendors and deployment models - and VOSS delivers unique insights no matter which vendor choices they make.

    In summary, the event was the well-run, well-attended global event that we have come to expect from Microsoft. While it lacked the major blockbuster announcement beyond the Free Teams offer, I suspect that this was welcome by a partner ecosystem focused on driving opportunities.
