Donoma OneView 3.8: Latest Release Adds Call Center & Enterprise Features

October 14th, 2019

Donoma OneView 3.8 is now available and we’re excited to see how the platform is making data analytics accessible and useful for line of business managers as well as IT staff.  This release expands the power of our easy to use interface to incorporate more advanced capabilities including UCCX Call Center integration and support for tracking analytics across a geo-diverse enterprise.

Built to Provide Visibility for Executives

OneView was built first to solve a business insight problem posed by a frustrated CEO.  He’d invested in a business development strategy that just was not producing results.  He wanted to be able to quickly look into data he knew his Cisco communications platform was generating to independently assess the situation with impartial data.  The CEO wanted to see if the call volumes being reported matched up with actual activity.

Gaining insight into hard data on activity volume and utilization of expensive headcount was not possible in any meaningful format.  Nor was he comfortable involving IT personnel in pulling data for a strategic analysis that might have personnel performance implications.

The CEO knew that Donoma’s archiving & retention products made it very easy to find communications data.  Could Donoma’s intuitive search and filter interface be applied to a different type of communication record to solve his problem?

The answer was yes, and OneView was born.

Operationally Focused…

OneView is unique in its ability to provide insight for two very different audiences. It’s ease of use is perfect for the operational managers. That same ease of use helps IT with alerts, trunk line optimization and very fast access to performance data for any call.

Before OneView, if a business manager wanted to gain insight related to communications, they could not get it themselves. They had to explain what they wanted to IT and wait for results. What data could be pulled was expensive to extract, with very raw output with no context. IT understands the voice platform and its technical intricacies. Understanding a manager’s views, objectives and needs is not their area of expertise. Not an ideal scenario for agile decision making.

With OneView, managers and analysts can customize reports and views for their department or line of business. OneView’s intuitive interface makes it easy to produce insight where and when it is needed.

…With Powerful Functionality for IT

OneView continues to have a great deal to offer for IT too. OneView makes it easy to drill down into call performance data to identify technical issues. The speed and ease of accessing call detail has saved clients time and money. Problems with calls can be easily traced and diagnosed. No more guesswork. If there’s a problem with either side of a call, it is clearly evident in OneView which side of the call is having the issues.

Many organizations find particular value with OneView’s ability to optimize data-line usage versus data line provisioning. OneView layers real time call volume data against trunk line provisioning levels. It’s a powerful tool for right-sizing communication line purchases. Organizations have instant ROI on their OneView subscription on this feature alone.

3.8 Release: Expanded Insight + Call Center Data Integration

Donoma OneView 3.8 now integrates insight from your Cisco UCCX call center. Feedback told us that people want to integrate data from both platforms. From one console, all call activity is accessible. Now it’s easy to select and integrate all types of call data into dashboards, views and reports. The report library and the ability to automate report creation and delivery, makes analysis flexible and easy.

Insight across locations, time-zones, and clusters

Turning communications activity into actionable data visualizations is what makes OneView unique. The call flow animations in particular have made it easy to see real time activity by person, team or conference line but all the associated call quality data. Now, in this release, OneView is delivering Enterprise level call analytics. For organizations with calls that flow across locations, insight continues seamlessly. OneView tracks call flows across a geo-diverse enterprise that may be processing thousands of calls per day.

OneView continues to innovate to help your team make better decisions, faster.

2018: Voicemail Retention to Become Mainstream?

October 19th, 2017

Retention & management of voicemails is an increasingly common conversation within even un-regulated organizations.  Ever since unified messaging made it possible to email a voicemail; managing voicemails has become a challenge.

When it comes to voicemail, we’ve seen a couple of key management issues:
  • IT wants to groom the mailbox disk usage by keeping mailbox size small and retention short.
  • Legal, HR, Safety and other stakeholders have regular needs to keep voicemails as documentation.
  • Voicemail systems don’t make it easy to find specific voicemails, and there is no access control.
  • Voicemails archived with email via unified messaging don’t always come back out of the archive as expected.
  • Unified messaging archiving overwrites metadata often needed during production.
  • Protecting privacy, trade secrets or other privileged information is not possible when sharing a raw voicemail file.
 Clearly, the unified messaging archive is not the answer.  In fact, these challenges are exactly the reasons we applied our unified messaging expertise to develop Message Vault.    
2018 looks to be a big year for the management of voicemail records.  An increasing array of regulations are now expecting and examining for voicemail records.  More are specifically addressing issues such as retention for up to 7 years, but swept off mobile devices within 14 days . (HIPPA & Method II, for example.)  
Voicemail retrieval efforts from unified messaging archives have surfaced the challenges noted above.  And this is not strictly a matter of regulatory compliance. Voicemails often need to be quickly located, redacted and then communicated to address Safety and HR issues.
Message Vault is already on the job helping organizations address these issues; but we never rest on our efforts.  Our latest release adds features such as File Shredding (DoD level) of records upon their retirement, expanded integration with Microsoft Active Directory for role management, and more.
Want to learn more?  Let’s discuss your organization’s voicemail retention challenges and help you address them.

Federal Judges Weigh in on Technology: “Be Prepared, We Expect More”

May 16th, 2016


Innovation, particularly with technology, can be exciting – even sexy. However, with any advancement, comes the need to embrace change.  That is where the promise of innovation can get derailed: most of us hate change.

The legal profession has advanced its use of technology in many sectors, such as with the implementation of sophisticated systems for billing and management of client records. Yet using technology proactively during litigation or trials has noticeably lagged. Up until now, attorneys were expected to have expertise in their area of law, but not in the application of technology to their case’s preparation and presentation.

It appears that is about to change.

At the recent LegalTech Conference in New York City, a panel of five U.S. Magistrate Judges, including the Honorable James Francis, Andrew Peck and Lorenzo Garcia delivered their views on the use of technology in preparation for, and during, legal proceedings.  Their session, “How Is Technology Used in Today’s Courtrooms and Cases,” made it clear that judges are expecting attorneys to embrace technology in the courtroom.

“We’re seeing technology a lot less than we would expect.”
– The Honorable James Francis

This new expectation certainly caught our attention, given that Donoma Software creates software designed to help retain and manage communication records, such as voicemails, instant messages and two-way phone call recordings.

In the past, we’ve received interest from organizations exploring their need to manage records and risk, only to be told by their legal teams that retention of these records is unnecessary. This is despite the revised Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that specifically invoke them; and recent legal precedent that penalized failure to retain such records.  [Zubulake v. UBS Warburg]

The reality is, until the legal profession advises their clients that the need is real, this gap in records retention policy will persist, to many organizations’ detriment.

Now, influential federal judges are weighing in: leveraging, understanding and retaining new streams of communication is expected.  The claim that managing electronic communication records is too “expensive” or “complex” is less convincing as technology has become more accessible.

“We find a lot of reluctance to move on to new technology because it’s different, and it’s hard … You’re going to find those recalcitrant parties who say, ‘I’m going to stick with my quill pen and ink,” said the Honorable Lorenzo Garcia.

“There’s just too much data to try and do it the old fashioned way,”
– The Honorable Andrew Peck.

Overall, the judges on the panel all agree that the court must be cognizant of existing technologies that, if used properly, would efficiently expedite the legal process and potentially reduce the cost of the e-discovery.

While the LegalTech panel is only one data point, taking the speakers’ credentials into consideration, it is clear that there is a growing expectation for today’s legal professionals: embrace innovation, leverage the technology that exists, and stay informed of the rapidly evolving options to use technology to expedite the discovery, pre-trial, trial, and litigation processes. While this change may not happen overnight, with increasing pro-technology attitudes coming from the bench, we expect to see more more legal professionals not only adapting – but leveraging the benefits technology can bring to the process.

Message Vault @Work: Voicemail Becomes Both Asset and Safety Measure

April 19th, 2016
