IT and contact center leaders are embracing hybrid. Cloud-based applications, including IVR, often boast lower TCO than legacy, on-premises models. Moving to cloud can seem disruptive; ensuring that patches, upgrades or new technology deployments go smoothly is a critical part of a successful migration plan. But knowing these three secrets will push you a step closer to your successful cloud-based IVR migration.
Even with careful planning, technology failures or disruptions can occur and negatively impact customer experience. So how can you minimize risk, accelerate release cycles, reduce costs and consistently deliver a quality customer experience?

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.
Violent storms will likely become more common—as will, unfortunately, power outages. Utility companies are being more proactive about staging assets to be able to respond to outages when there is time to prepare, moving trucks, people and equipment into strategic locations to respond to reported outages. But what is being done to validate that their customers can call in when these outages occur?
Empirix, Inc. has released a new version of its Hammer Test System for end-to-end call center customer experience IVR and Virtual Agent test automation.
Many quality initiatives are doomed to fail right from the start. There are a number of reasons for this failure including that the initiative was just an afterthought to an ongoing project or worse, part of an ill-defined long term strategy.
