Alsbridge's report offering a guide to enterprises to facilitate the decision to utilize Microsoft Lync as an enterprise telephony communication application.

Dallas (I-Newswire) December 12, 2013 - Enterprises first need to weigh the pros and cons of Microsoft Lync in order to determine if Lync is the right solution for them, according to Alsbridge Inc., a benchmarking, sourcing and transformation advisory firm. The latest report by Alsbridge, The Pros and Cons of Microsoft Lync, offers a guide to enterprises to facilitate the decision to utilize Microsoft Lync as an enterprise telephony communication application.

The consideration and potential use of Microsoft Lync for telephony and unified communications is thought to be a passionate topic inside enterprises today. The most common challenges faced by infrastructure groups today include; desktop, telephony, and networking groups. These clearly define support roles like contracting, deployment, ongoing service support and management all of which are essential to support Microsoft Lync as telephony and unified communication engine.

Alsbridge CEO, Chip Wagner says "Even before ownership and decisions are made, concerning support and operating structure, enterprises first need to weigh the pros and cons of a Microsoft Lync investment and then determine how they should proceed."

Microsoft has come a long way from the early days of Office Communication Server (OCS), improving their unified communication offering, capabilities and vision. The capabilities of Microsoft Lync, which includes instant messaging, presence, video, email and telephony, are highly robust offering strong value for enterprises. However, there are also numerous technical challenges and complexities in deploying a Microsoft Lync solution. If one cannot afford workarounds, delays, and higher than standard labor costs then one should consider other solutions or hybrids and not put all your eggs in a single basket with Microsoft.

"Enterprises need to execute planning up front, and answer critical technical questions before Unified Communication deployment; thus allowing them to achieve the savings, customer support, and solution high availability," says Dieter Thompson, President, Alsbridge Inc.

The report discusses in detail some of the advantages and disadvantages to adopting end-to-end Lync Strategy. The complete report can be downloaded by visiting Pros and Cons of Microsoft Lync.
