Sonus Helps UC a Future of Success with the Microsoft Phone System

October 4th, 2017

Today's businesses rely on Unified Communications (UC), to improve their day-to-day operations and enhance employee productivity. Moving voice to a data network and the cloud provides communication and collaboration synergies, but it brings new considerations regarding the security and performance of your network. Planning a successful migration can be the difference between a state-of-the-art UC implementation and a slow, unreliable security leak.

So, what platform are enterprises using as they shift to UC?

In a recent announcement, Irwin Lazar, vice president and service director of Nemertes Research stated, “according to Nemertes’ latest benchmark research, nearly 70% of organizations now use Microsoft Skype for Business collaboration and are increasingly adopting it for telephony. Meanwhile, of those who have adopted team chat apps, 35% are using Microsoft Teams, creating challenging deployment scenarios that mix on-premises and cloud applications.”

Moreover, Microsoft recently announced that Teams will evolve as the core communications client for its cloud-connected users running Office 365.

Lazar went on to state, “introducing new technology, combined with changes in the number and location of employees, force businesses to grapple with evolving deployment scenarios. Truly successful implementations require flexibility, so it’s smart for organizations to choose vendors that can adapt to fluctuating needs.”
