OTTAWA, June 18 – CATAAlliance President John Reid is one of four Canadian industry experts featured in the new white paper “Re-Integrating the Enterprise”, which is available now through the download section of the UC in Canada site (

In the document, John, along with Info-Tech Lead Analyst (and former AT&T Canada CIO) Andy Woyzbun, Web 3.0 guru James Burchill, and UC in Canada Featured Analyst Joe Greene, describe their visions of how unified communications enables Canadian private and public sector enterprises to be more competitive.  The white paper is one of many resources available through the UC in Canada site, which also features a Unified Communications discussion forum, additional profiles and white papers, and UC-themed videos, polls, and research documents.

“The ‘Re-Integrating the Enterprise’ white paper is an important document for Canadian (and international) managers who are interested in understanding how unified communications can transform their operations,” CATA President Reid said.  “It presents, in non-technical language, a coherent explanation of the business impact of unified communications – how it enhances the business, the path to adoption and deployment, and the business case considerations that potential UC adopters need to evaluate as they plot their technology strategies.  I urge our members, and others who are looking for this kind of insight, to review the contents of the paper, and to post reactions through the Unified Communications discussion forum that’s available through, or through CATA’s new portal at”

CATA also released several videos on CATAnet TV dealing with various aspects of the Mobility or Web 2.0 office  (aka the Bedouin Office) that can be viewed at:
