Why Voice. XML Matters l Voice has always been an extension of the enterprise Why Voice. XML Matters l Voice has always been an extension of the enterprise application and data infrastructure n l Proprietary technology is an obstacle to evolution n n l Voice self-service replicates information and transaction functionality from environments such as Siebel and SAP Restricts knowledge base (tools, training and technique don’t cross vendor lines) Thwarts “best-in-class” multi-vendor approach to solutions Development standards promote evolution n n Nurtures breadth and depth in skills that are reusable and transferable Supports robust “mix-and-match” solutions with most precise fit-to-purpose Y O U S P E A K.

Voice. XML isn’t Perfect Yet, But You Should Still be On-Board l Early days Voice. XML isn’t Perfect Yet, But You Should Still be On-Board l Early days yet — 2. 0 is current standard n n l Backend integration is not addressed n n l More examples every day, but still not enough to form a clear picture of best practices Standard is defined but immature (2 GL will mature to 4 GL) Voice applications are an extension of backend application and data, NOT the telephony infrastructure Hand-written Java connectors are typically not reusable — which is contrary to a principal value of Voice. XML Like web, often part but not all of the code base n n E. g. , more C++ than Java on the web even today Markup language is only a piece of the whole — content and work is still on the development side, whether it’s web or voice Y O U S P E A K.

Enterprise Voice Applications Design, Development & Deployment VOICE SERVICES CHALLENGES DEPLOY, MODIFY AND EXTEND Enterprise Voice Applications Design, Development & Deployment VOICE SERVICES CHALLENGES DEPLOY, MODIFY AND EXTEND § Separate data, process & flow so each can flexibly evolve § Single collaborative environment for designers, developers & administrators with a “view” for each role to enable VOICE USER INTERFACE DESIGN APPLICATION FLOW AND FUNCTIONAL ARCHITECTURE § Balance of “quality and speed” supported by tools that promote reuse and structure CREATE DATA AND PROCESS OBJECTS BUSINESS LOGIC AND PROCESS INTEGRATION l Consistent reusable access to applications and data infrastructure DATA TRANSFORMATION SERVICES FOR USE OF DATA IN APPLICATION l Data transformation for usability across application structure CONNECT TO DATA SOURCES AND GATHER DATA l Heterogeneous technology silos with key data across IT infrastructure

What to Look for in a Tool l Web affinity that doesn’t come at What to Look for in a Tool l Web affinity that doesn’t come at the expense of voice quality n n l Reusability across platforms and projects n n l vi, jsp, asp and notepad are great for static “Hello World”, but no substitute for real voice application design technology Voice. XML is marginally addressed in web tools today — but stay tuned because this is the evolution this decade Cross-platform access is a fundamental value of Voice. XML — without it, it’s just a nicer way to stay proprietary Cross-project is the only way to build a rich library of functional components Best practices n Built on the experience of actually doing the job, not interest in tools as ends themselves Y O U S P E A K.

Contact Center l Last bastion of metered usage based on huge sunk costs l Contact Center l Last bastion of metered usage based on huge sunk costs l Saving seconds means lower costs to operate the call center and higher caller satisfaction through better service l Voice.

Self-Service HR l Already a significant market for Edify, standards-based applications and hosting options Self-Service HR l Already a significant market for Edify, standards-based applications and hosting options will make it easier for companies of any size to adopt this technology n n l l Not just healthcare and retirement accounts — password reset, a mundane but chronic problem, can be automated within this solution SBC. . . Voice transactions are immune to viruses and phishing — and readily available technology such as speaker verification can make eavesdropping unproductive Employees at every skill level have telephone access — and employers who limit on-the-job internet access can still enjoy the productivity and cost-savings benefits of a self-serve system Y O U S P E A K.

Guys in Trucks with Cell Phones l Field service continues even in the automated Guys in Trucks with Cell Phones l Field service continues even in the automated world we live in l Complex back-end applications built on Oracle, SAP and other enterprise technologies drive the logic of field service. . . But training costs for the field staff are prohibitive (and so are the client devices needed to use these applications), so transcription of paper persists l Voice applications make it easy for field service reps to use cheap cell phones with cheap plans to communicate directly with complex backend systems to obtain and file tickets without costly training or middle-man transcription Y O U S P E A K.
