Cisco Business Edition 7000

I use my IP phone and video app a lot to hold meetings with co-workers and talk to suppliers and the support service I provide. The BE7000's call manager is great and can be expanded according to the company's demand. In a single server, it is possible to have many, many services related to communication instead of hiring different solutions from different manufacturers. The advantage is having a unique support contract to manage and also savings in the data center rack. It is totally recommended to everyone who is looking for something simplified, safe, and with great collaboration features.

IBM B2B Cloud Services

We have just started to use IBM B2B Cloud Services within our department. We were looking for a cloud-based solution to manage all of our partner's B2B processes within a single interface. We did not want to have to go through the hassle of managing any sort of solution ourselves; thus, we came to the conclusion that a cloud-based solution would work best for our department. So far, we have found that the product has been reliable, and not having to worry about maintenance and patch cycles is always a good thing.

Cons

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 7000

I've used 220s and 240s too, but it takes a lot of time to set them up, a lot of time to download the iso files, and set up of datastores. 7k saves the engineer a lot of pre-build assessment and evaluation time. Gets a lot done in a lot less time, returns are a happy engineer and a happier customer.

IBM B2B Cloud Services

IBM B2B Cloud Services stands out among the competition with its solid performance, wealth of features, and multiple platform compatibility. While it can be more expensive than competitive services, its core components are powerful enough to work with multiple levels of marketing campaigns and outreach efforts. The service works well among different levels of clients and can be utilized better across different viewing devices

Return on Investment

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • We were able to sell it to many customers and has proved beneficial always.
  • Less number of complaints.
  • Amazing support from Cisco TAC.

IBM B2B Cloud Services

  • We feel that IBM B2B Cloud Services will drive down our maintenance costs because my group is no longer responsible for patching and maintaining infrastructure.
  • High availability of IBM B2B Cloud Services will allow us to have a greater up time with less downtime.
  • Having a single platform where all B2B integrations are shown and presented in a single interface will allow us to quickly and effectively manage those integrations and see which ones are really needed. A single view will provide instant visibility into any sort of problems that may arise as well.
