Aura Alliance today announced Jonathan Harris will join full time as Chief Technology and Strategy Officer.
Harris will lead the global strategy and technology roadmap to support the company’s transformation from being an Avaya centric specialist to becoming a multi-vendor global alliance in the deployment of global enterprise communications.

To do that, we’re expanding our reach by introducing specialist support for Cisco and Microsoft, which will go hand-in-hand with cloud-based vendors like Genesys, Nectar, Ribbon, RMG and TATA,”.
HELPING AURA ALLIANCE BUSINESS PARTNERS TO LEVERAGE VENDORS
Harris will work closely with its global network of business partners across 120 countries to ensure they maximise greater access to leading technology vendors to deliver the best tools and technologies to their end customers.
Tony Parish, Aura Alliance CEO, made today’s announcement stating, “Jonathan Harris’ expertise in Avaya and Microsoft combined with his critical eye in creating viable commercial offerings with multiple vendors are at the forefront of our plans. His expertise and dynamic leadership will bring experience, skills and dedication to this Company.”
