The enterprise communications market is transitioning to a blended ecosystem of services and software-centric platforms deployed on the customer premises. The range of components that can be part of the UC stack is also expanding. Partners are vital to expand vendor reach and to foster close customer relationships needed for higher-value UC sales. Developing a framework to support a diverse partner network is essential to achieve partner-led success. Vendors must recruit partners from UC adjacencies and help existing partners expand their skill sets.
