Some companies have accepted new forms of internal and external communication and are discovering that integrating voice and data in a single communication platform provide access to emerging technologies and resources at low cost with a smaller investment and a quicker return. Through cloud computing, companies are using a server provider to manage voice and data instead of using two or three, one for each service. The growing popularity of this type of service will encourage the market economy and companies, giving them the opportunity of doing more and spending less.

Some of this year's trends are:

1. Hosted PBX

With these new services it is possible for co-workers to communicate using the direct dial extension or external dialogue, which can be once transferred within and between locations without experiencing a hard handoff. It also allows remote access to voice mail and remote configuration capabilities of users and devices. Such features as content filters and wireless- based backup and recovery systems are available now to help companies communicate more effectively.

It is also important to mention here, that the cloud back up has brought about a revolution in inexpensive storage, making backing up online inexpensive. There\'s a debate about the best kind of backup, but anyway, storing your data offsite and online is a good option.
