However, as the quality of all types of video conferencing has improved, costs have gone down, and software-based systems emerged, enterprise video conferencing is more flexible than ever. That's why the best video conferencing strategy today is one that doesn't rely on a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather allows for a mixture of different types of endpoints to match user needs.

In this SearchCIO handbook, Koeppel offers CIOs and IT executives five tips on how they can prepare for this enterprise data center of the future.
