Cloud vs On-Premise each solution has its benefits, here we cover some considerations

The question isn’t whether you need video conferencing, it’s how to give your people the best connected experience.

Using Lifesize, you get a simple, one-touch video conferencing solution that lets anyone pull up a seat at a meeting from anywhere, at any time and using whatever device they want. You even have an option for how you connect—through the cloud or over your own network. You just have to decide what works best for your organisation.

That’s the connected experience, and here’s why you need it:

  • More and more of today’s workforce is going mobile.
  • Businesses in every industry must adapt so that everyone stays as productive as possible.
  • People need to connect to one another with an experience that lets them make decisions faster and communicate better. This means connecting from whatever devices they have.
  • So, do you choose a cloud-based or a network-based video conferencing solution, and can it deliver a truly connected experience for people?

In the cloud or at your site?

Lifesize delivers an ideal solution for providing your business a connected experience. Now, you and your team can be just one call away from being right in the meeting. Which video conferencing solution is best for you: one that’s based in the cloud or one that resides on your company’s network?
