Topics regarding layoffs at Avaya
You got Nortel CPE for a dime and had the world in front you and customers never felt safe and you started telling customers what to do instead of listening to them. You ran the CC intellect off. People that had carried your products to customer for... read more
Obviously, private equity is finding it difficult to spend $4B on CC, else there would have been an announcement much earlier. Customers are loosing confidence in Avaya and leaving. Expect bankruptcy news.
Business at Avaya is on hold. Customers are reluctant to purchase Avaya until they understand the future of the company. This is just common sense. Comes Jan 1st, no announcement, customers will move forward with other vendors, talks and plans are... read more
For guys worked their butt off in the past, it is tough to say goodbye... All we can do is to continue the hard work, keep the team spirits, and wish our dear company can weather through! No company is perfect, Avaya is no difference... But you can't... read more
I remember KK's webcast about sip based solutions and how a glorified sip proxy server would be the savior of the world. He even stated confidently 'SIP is the replacement of IP' - clearly showing how much he knew about technology. In the mid market... read more
December 2nd was the date my boss told me there will be an official announcement. Well, it looks like even that Avaya can't close. I guess will have to wait for a few more days\weeks before we know what's going on. Mean while customers are not... read more
CD&R will take over CC and this is conform news as per our Manager. Now what next? Who will go where?
Avayan's not going with CC business shouldn't worry because so far Microsoft has offered the best deal for both UC and Networking business. Nadella doesn't want to remain behind in competing with Cisco and for Microsoft, getting Avaya onboard would... read more
If you had a million dollars and gave away one quarter, and another quarter, and then another quarter, how much would you have left? A million dollars minus 75 cents.
So it isn't 2 companies no more, it's 3 companies. Seems Mr Marc Randal is setting himself ready for his new job by trying very hard and by himself to sell the networking unit to a 3rd bidder. God knows how much of kickback he will be getting out of... read more
What do we know so far?
Last email from KK clearly says that all on TPG&SL table to decide. From all the talk the options seems to be: Avaya goes ch11 Avaya continues with CC sold to cover debt Avaya goes ch11 with CC sold to cover debt. Ch11 because revenue without CC... read more

Also, let's pick time: I'll try: 20% by March-1-2017 What's your prognosis?

50% headcount will be laid off (by March) and the remainder 50% to join the new CC org (from April onwards). The old Avaya will file chapter 11 and its remaining assets (Network etc) will be sold off by the Creditors as part of the chapter 11... read more
It won't be announced though to protect stock price of acquiring Company, It all done for $1 + the debt...
Bankruptcy news may be false news by buyer to bringdown sale price and have leverage. Good news is got best STIP in the past 3 years. No salary increase though. Hopefully all this will be behind us.
CD&R to make Gary the new CEO of the broken wing Avaya Call-Center Software unit. Rest of Avaya to file bankruptcy.
What seems unbelievable to me is not hearing a single word of our leaders. This kind of information is viral and today all of us we have received dozens of calls and emails asking about the news. Our customers are stopping their decisions to go ahead... read more
While we are waiting here for some news. Can we exchange some ideas on what can be our next opportunity? NAR Emea India ...etc What is the market status? Where is the potential?
