Many contact centers are cutting-edge technology adopters, so why has the migration to agile and DevOps practices not been fully embraced by some organizations?
mmer Cloud Platform (HCP) is intended for infrastructure planning, application development (AppDev), DevOps, operations, and quality assurance (QA) teams who need to frequently execute tests to ensure their contact center applications are ready for business.
With Hammer Sprint, both expert and novice users can easily configure stories and test behavior, with hundreds of tests automatically executed in minutes to avoid errors and reduce cycles from weeks to hours. Automated reporting enables organizations to quickly identify problem areas and eliminate defects earlier in the development process, thereby reducing costs. In addition, operations teams can reuse test cases for production monitoring and alerting.
The latest version of VoiceWatch offers a simple, drag-and-drop diagramming tool to rapidly develop ad hoc scripts with the CallMaster GO interface, making VoiceWatch and the Hammer Cloud Platform truly self-service, 24×7. Saved schedules offer more flexibility in monitoring and better control of test execution on holidays and off hours, while enhanced speech recognition capabilities ensure complete and accurate monitoring of today’s dynamic and personalized voice interfaces.
Companies migrating to an Agile development methodology have seen the benefits of accelerating deployments with smaller, more focused feature sets per release, but they have also experienced the pain of grouping those feature sets into workable code capable of being released to the public—without sacrificing quality.
After attending Avaya International Users Group in Orlando, I’m really excited about Avaya’s direction with Avaya Oceana™ centered around the Avaya Breeze engagement platform. It offers contact centers much more direct control over the mapping of the customer journeys. Direct control enables organizations to customize customer experience improvements based on real-time information and their own business objectives.

The agile methodology for software development has definitely taken center stage, however, it struggles in large organizations with long standing processes and considerable investments in […]
In the contact center, supervisors and managers often run into similar situations. Most agents go through an initial training when hired, but over time they may forget some of the tactics they learned or realize they need more knowledge about a certain topic or software program. With everyone operating at different levels, it can be challenging to provide consistent, high-quality service to every customer who reaches out to you.
Today’s data analytics platforms generally are very niche in their capabilities. Their focus is limited: just the application on the device or the packet core or the IMS core or the Application Servers or…well…you get the picture.
