January Was Busy!

By

I just published my Quipz recap for January. It was a very busy month for the enterprise communications. I’d like to thank the companies that didn’t make any announcements.

Quipz newsletter is part of my premium subscription. It includes the monthly recaps and my research notes. The next research note is on Avaya – if you wrote them off as dead, you were mistaken.

Here’s the contents of the Jan Quipz.
