Overview

Have you ever walked into the office after a weekend to find out that you're having issues with your Unified Communications cluster? When you left on Friday, everything was in working order.

Wouldn't you like to find out what's changed from last week to now? With Variphy Insight, you'll get that information with just a few clicks.

This should be the first step you take in identifying and establishing change management for your Unified Communications System. Because Variphy Insight's comparison engine is CUCM version aware, it will recognize the required data fields, publish your report and let you focus on the next issue at hand.
