Santa Clara, CA – Thursday, March 7, 2013 – As businesses seek new ways to extend and deepen relationships between highly mobile, device-fluent employees and their equally mobile device-fluent customers and suppliers, delivering a seamless, Connected Experience has never been more important. To create this connected experience, enterprises need secure, easy to use, reliable, affordable solutions that can flexibly accommodate business dynamics and deliver measurable benefits to the enterprise.


During his keynote speech and fireside chat at Enterprise Connect 2013, Avaya President and CEO, Kevin Kennedy will share insights into the advantages of the truly Connected Experience along with the key steps and considerations for achieving the maximum benefits for enterprises and end users.  Kennedy’s keynote and fireside chat will be held on Tuesday, March 19, 11:00-11:30 am Eastern at the Gaylord Palms, Kissimmee, Florida.
