What is the Future of Unified Communications?

The Unified Communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) sector has evolved rapidly in recent years. UCaaS has taken the business world by storm, and there’s no sign yet of a let-up in momentum with the shift to managing remote teams. Transparency Market Research predicts the UC market will be worth $79.3 billion by 2024.

It’s fair to assume that by 2024 UC solutions will be very different from those we see today. What, though, are the trends that will shape the sector in the new decade? While there’s no way to know for sure, the following look set to have a significant impact on the future of UCaaS:

  • Increased influence of AI for smart UC
  • Continued decline of traditional hardware and systems
  • Even more intelligent conferencing & meeting features
  • More influence of open platform processes
  • SD-WAN to become an undisputed standard

KSU alumnus seeks to inspire next generation of architects through technology | Education

Seven years after earning his architecture degree, alumnus Patrick Chopson said he is prepared to help the next generation of Kennesaw State University architecture students thrive in the world of data-driven design.

Recently, Chopson and his company, cove.tool, partnered with KSU’s College of Architecture and Construction Management to provide its software and expertise as part of a new studio course on precast concrete.

While studying architecture at KSU, Chopson said he became acutely aware of climate change and the role that architecture could play in helping to reduce emissions. Currently, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 40% of carbon dioxide emissions, according to Architecture 2030, but he said placing an emphasis on energy modeling while designing a building can help reduce emissions by 40% to 60%.

After studying high performance building at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Chopson quickly learned that many professionals did not have the tools to
