July was Acquisitive

by Dave Michels

I just published my monthly Quipz newsletter recapping July’s news in enterprise communications. 

As I expected, July was a bit light. There was only one major event: Google Next (but it was a doozy). That didnt’ really result in a shorter newsletter. I took some liberties with a few longer opinions. The newsletter came out something like this:

UC-Centric News
12 stories – including Google Voice and the UC MQ.

Messaging-Centric News
12 stories including three new comers in team collaboration. Slack Puts Atlassian Out of Team Misery

Video-Centric News
5 stories featuring Zoom, LifeSize, and Starleaf.

Customer Engagement News
6 stories including the Phillies and a question about English speaking foreign agents.

Provider-Centric News
3 stories including an update on 5G.

Emerging Technologies
2 AI stories regarding Facebook and Einstein

Morse Code, Authy, and 4 other stories.

7 relevant acquisitions in July. More on Aug 1, but that will be in next month’s issue.

Financial Quipz
2 fund raising runs.
