According to market research only 40% of the Global 1000 companies federate across corporate boundaries with most having on average one or two "like-to-like" UC federations. However, market surveys show a typical enterprise has hundreds of business partners that it would like to collaborate with (even "like-to-like" ones) especially if there was an easy way to: a) find partners that are 'federation-ready', b) send, receive and track federation requests, c) centrally manage all of their federations, and d) analyze the impact of each federation on their employees' productivity.
Directory of Federation-Ready Partners
The UC Exchange management portal provides a growing directory of "federation-ready" companies. It allows organizations to "friend" each other and to build their own business community of partners by sending them a federation request.
Federation Request Management
The inbound and outbound federation requests and their status, such approvals and requests for information, can easily be tracked on the management portal's dashboard.
Moreover, the UC Exchange management portal will notify the respective UC administrators engaged in federation, when the status of a request changes or an input from them is required.
Reports and Analytics
The UC Exchange management portal provides charts and reports to enable member organizations to measure and a valuable insight into user adoption across the organization and their partner community.
