MUNICH and RESTON, Va., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unify, a leading communications software and services firm, today announced general availability of the latest version of the industry-leading OpenScape Enterprise, raising the industry benchmark for communication and collaboration technology. Key updates to OpenScape UC and OpenScape Voice include an intuitive user interface, with security and reliability improvements to ensure today's "Anywhere Workers" can easily collaborate to solve problems and achieve results.

Unify Raises Industry Benchmark for Communication & Collaboration

"Today's workers want technology that enables them to easily communicate with teams," said Peter Kurpick, executive vice president of Products at Unify. "The latest enhancements to our OpenScape Enterprise portfolio meet these needs, head on. With its intuitive user interface and enhanced security, and reliability, the solution raises the bar for technology that enables teams to stay connected and collaborate seamlessly."

"The redesigned user interface and new capabilities in the latest version of OpenScape Enterprise enhance the collaboration experience and have helped streamline our internal systems," said Frederic Burger, competence group leader of engineering, Swisscom Communication Business. "We're using the solution for our live demo that our presale and engineering teams use to show our products. We expect our customers will be very excited about this new interface once they see it."

OpenScape Unified Communications (UC)

Recognizing the need for teams and users to better collaborate and engage, the latest version of OpenScape UC includes a redesigned user interface to enhance the user experience and improve productivity. Leveraging the design principles used for Project Ansible—Unify's upcoming real-time collaboration platform—OpenScape UC is workflow- and collaboration-oriented to provide a more productive experience. The solution brings virtual teams together with rich federated presence, mobility, one number service, application plug-ins, and audio/web/desktop video conferencing capabilities. To further support mobile Anywhere Workers, OpenScape UC is now available for Android™ tablets and the iPad®, as well as iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows smartphones.

OpenScape Voice: Security and Operational Efficiency

Addressing the challenge of running the enterprise network smoothly and efficiently, the latest release of OpenScape Voice introduces key enhancements designed to increase security, reliability and interoperability. Highlights include the following:

  • SIP Connect 1.1 compliance. This is an industry-wide recommendation developed by the SIP Forum ensuring compatibility between SIP-enabled platforms (such as OpenScape Voice) to VoIP Service Provider networks for improved interoperability. The recommendation has gained international support from BITKOM in Germany and NICC in the UK.
  • SIPQ Version 2 provides additional support for multi-vendor networks where integration of third party PBX systems allows customers to leverage existing investment.
  • Trusted business groups for hosted and cloud deployments, ensuring business applications are easily and securely partitioned by specific user communities.
  • More automation for branch offices. A configuration capability automatically synchronizes user data, which speeds deployment and reduces configuration errors. 


OpenScape Enterprise is available today. Customers who are currently subscribed to OpenScape Software Assurance will receive the latest software release at no additional charge. For more information, visit the OpenScape UC web page.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
