Ep 87 – Scaling telcos’ cloud mountain with Alianza

This week’s guest

Brian Beutler

Founder & CEO Alianza

Despite having “as a service” in its name, traditional Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) deployments often fail to deliver on the promise of a true SaaS platform. One company, Alianza, has figured out a way to move UCaaS to AWS, offering a genuine SaaS solution that leverages the scalability and resilience of the public cloud.

I sat down with Brian Beutler, founder and CEO of Alianza, to discuss how his company is working to revolutionize the UCaaS landscape. Listen now to hear:

  • The challenges Alianza faced in moving UCaaS to the public cloud and how it overcame them [05:14];
  • How telcos’ mindset needs to shift to stay competitive with the evolving landscape [08:11];
  • The impact of Alianza’s recent strategic collaboration with AWS on the future of enterprise communications [09:41]; and
  • Jimmy Chin’s advice for telco executives [16:55].
