Avaya Featured Session: 
"Building Experiences with Avaya OneCloud Experience Platform" 

Kristine Konrad, Solutions Marketing, Avaya

This presentation will describe the value and differentiation of the Avaya OneCloud Experience Platform. Customers are more empowered, and demanding, than ever before. In response organizations are making adjustments to how they sell, how they service, and how they work. This presentation will demonstrate the value of creating a Total Experience strategy, why an Experience Platform is more than just a simple rebrand of CCaaS, and the value of a converged platform.

*Non-sponsoring partners are requested to only send 2 partners from their organization, in order to ensure enough space for customers.
