Agile methodologies and the DevOps movement promise faster time-to-deployment, higher quality code, more engaged, productive workers, and happier customers. But there are two sides to every story. In this webinar, we will examine the reasons why businesses might choose one methodology over another and suggest concrete steps businesses can take to get the most out of each methodology while removing friction.

Dynamic work environments are made-up of people on the move and virtual teams across different time zones. This makes it challenging to access an expert or to secure information. You need a communication solution that anchors fast-moving teams and enables communication from any device, anywhere; and communication tools that integrate with applications you use daily that are managed through a single interface to streamline deployment and speed your return on investment (ROI). Polycom and Microsoft® deliver a complete and interoperable end-to-end unified communications (UC) solution for voice, video, conferencing and collaboration and connect people from any device, and from any location.
As powerful as Microsoft Lync is, buyers should understand it is not a complete UC solution, and use of strategic partners is necessary. Voice and video are the most difficult services to provision correctly as workers require a high-quality, real-time experience. Anything short of that can remove many of the ROI benefits the company was hoping to realize. As such, companies deploying Lync should choose the best possible voice and video partner for Lync to simplify deployments and optimize user experience. Read why Polycom is a top strategic partner for Microsoft Lync for mission-critical voice and video services.
Unified communications (UC) has been a market in the making for well over a decade, as companies look to improve corporate collaboration. UC, the concept of streamlining phone, email, chat, video and content collaboration, has become a corporate objective for reducing the cost and complexity of communications and increasing employee productivity. What began 10 years ago as a hardware-driven effort to combine PBX systems, computer servers and video infrastructure, is now evolving to include software-enabled processes and functionality.
Lync Enterprise Voice and Lync video can improve worker productivity and streamline business processes, while lowering the overall total cost of communications. Read insights into the biggest benefits of Lync Enterprise Voice and video.
There are many ways to take advantage of the rich set of collaboration tools provided with Microsoft Lync. IT leaders should consider a cap-and-grow strategy where investment dollars in legacy systems are capped and the financial and IT resources are reallocated to grow Lync.
Once the company has a cap-and-grow Lync strategy, IT leaders should consider retirement of legacy infrastructure and how Lync can be leveraged as a replacement technology. Forward-looking IT leaders will consider Lync a strategic UC platform upon which to build a companywide collaboration strategy, rather than just a replacement for a legacy phone system. Get this report to read best practices for a Lync deployment.
Microsoft Lync is transforming enterprise communications. A 2013 ZK Research study shows that 43 percent of organizations have deployed Lync in at least part of their organization, with another 17 percent of organizations planning to do so in the next 12 months. If you’re in this group of organizations that have deployed Lync, you probably deployed instant messaging (IM) and presence. Now that Lync IM and presence has been running for a while, you’re thinking about taking the next step with Lync Enterprise Voice.
