A UC engineers job on paper, seems straightforward. Typical job duties outlined are configuring, troubleshooting and supporting UC deployments, ensuring overall stability and availability of collaboration technologies and managing infrastructure projects. To the untrained professional, a UC engineer’s job seems easy enough: keep things running smooth and when they aren’t, figure out why. In reality though, so much goes into keeping a collaboration environment and it’s UC deployments up and running that measuring how efficient your organization is being is often pushed to the wayside.
Consider this scenario, if a UC engineer spends his or her day troubleshooting, problem-solving and researching its’ collaboration environment performance issues and ultimately figures out and solves the issue or issues, it’s often considered a job well done, regardless of how long it took them to complete the ticket. But, then comes that dreaded call from an executive who just had a really bad video call and to make matters worse it was an Investor Relations call. Guess who’s on the line to fix this and make sure it doesn’t happen again? If you guessed the UC engineer, you’re correct and they have to respond back ASAP what went wrong. Today, UC operations solve the problem by spending endless hours combing thru cryptic CDR data or guesstimating the issue of a problem or sometimes even finger pointing the blame on a faulty network and its’ operators.
Is this really the most efficient use of a UC engineers time? Is it really the most efficient way to ensure that an organization is taking a proactive stand towards improving team collaboration? The answer is simply, no. There are other ways out there to ensure that an organization has put in the proper tools to ensure collaboration environments are flawless, and if the environment is not flawless, it can easily be pinpointed as to why.
Before an organization takes the step into finding a solution that helps monitor and analyze those pesky CDRs and video and voice call issues, they should figure out what the grass really does look like on the other side instead of making a blind decision.
Beyond monitoring, UC Ops executives are also tasked to ensure adoption and utilization of all the new digital collaboration initiatives they are asked to lead. The executives are tasked to ensure timely transition of new UC deployments such as migration to soft VOIP phones, new UC cloud solutions as well working with facilities to enhance and optimize conference and huddle rooms to optimize employee and customer engagement. The UC executive needs data to be able to measure the performance, adoption and ROI of the UC spend as well as work with CxO’s to optimize real estate expenses where collaboration technology is needed. All of this translates to the need of real time and historical data analytics to be more informed and drive optimal digital collaboration behavior.
