    SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA) today announced it has been recognized
    as a Leader in the The
    Aragon Research Globe for Unified Communications and Collaboration, 2019

    According to the report1, authored by Aragon Research lead
    analyst Jim Lundy and associate analyst Samra Anees, “Avaya has a robust
    portfolio of cloud and private cloud offerings that leverage its API
    based UCC platform. Avaya is fully committed to cloud, and its
    video-based offerings work out of the box or can be integrated into
    existing, client-facing applications. While Avaya has a large on-premise
    install base, the shift to cloud positions it well for the future.”

    Avaya IX Workplace unified communication solutions help take
    collaboration and productivity to new levels, designed to incorporate
    calling, messaging, meetings, and team collaboration all into one,
    easy-to-use platform. Reducing complexity also reduces the security
    risks and productivity drain from having multiple solutions in the
    workplace. Teams are better connected and enabled, helping them to
    become stronger customer advocates and driving improved brand loyalty.
    Avaya IX Workplace can be delivered in whatever way customers prefer—on
    premise or private, public or hybrid cloud.

    embrace digital transformation today,” said Jim Chirico, CEO, Avaya. “We
    believe that earning this distinction reflects our continued innovation
    and commitment to offer differentiated solutions that enhance customer
    experience and workforce efficiency. Avaya is investing significantly in
    its Unified Communications portfolio to provide customers the solutions
    that best meet their needs, to leverage UC, including telephony, video,
    mobility, messaging, meetings and team collaboration.”
