Exciting Day for the Lantana Team at Avaya Evolutions

Exciting Day for the Lantana Team at Avaya Evolutions

February 11th, 2013

It was an awesome day at Avaya Evolutions™ last Wednesday! There was quite a turnout, and the Lantana Team was there front and center as an Avaya Platinum sponsor.

We heard from industry greats such as Guy Kawasaki (co-founder of Alltop.com) as he spoke about “enchantment and innovation”. As an insider, Guy shared with us a lesson he learned from Steve Jobs: “Experts are usually wrong. Trust your gut.” He also highlighted the Grateful Dead as an example of endurance.

Our very own Jim Britton was in attendance to introduce valued customer Joe McCorkle from Texas-based RealPage. Joe was phenomenal in his presentation as he discussed his experiences with Lantana and our latest project together: virtualizing Communication Manager for improved cost-efficiency, scalability and rapid deployment. He had the crowd riveted. We couldn’t have asked for a better speaker!

Our team connected with some great individuals and companies about their communications needs. We learned a good deal about mobile collaboration solutions and BYOD security and control during the interactive demonstrations.

But it wasn’t all work and no play. Avaya Evolutions dancers were there to pump up the crowd as they rocked it out to “Good Feeling.” Attendees joined in on several social media contests, including “Top Reporter” to win an iPad® mobile digital device and “Top Graphic Reporter” to win a very cool digital camera. Also, as February is national heart month and February 1 marked the 10-year anniversary of national “Wear Red” day drawing attention to heart disease in women, we did something a little ‘extra special’ in Dallas. For each attendee wearing a red dress and for each person using #AvayaEvolutions, Avaya added $1 towards their American Heart Association charity donation.

We’re definitely looking forward to next year’s event!
