Integrated IT Solutions News April 2015
 
Skype For Business replaces Lync

Starting in mid-April, Lync will become Skype for Business with a new client experience, server release and updates to the service in Office 365.

Skype for Business will take advantage of the strengths of Skype and Lync. Because you already know and use Skype at home, using Skype for Business with your colleagues, partners and customers will require less training and support.

Skype for Business is designed to deliver a high-quality experience for every call. Conversations travel seamlessly with you from the meeting room to any mobile device, including OS X, Windows and Android. You can turn an email into a meeting and escalate into a group call, thanks to improved integration with Office, Active Directory, Exchange and SharePoint.

If you're interested in more information, we would be happy to arrange a Skype for Business briefing with you to share more about the upcoming release.

Spring cleaning: recycle your old equipment

With the rapid expansion of technology, combined with the relatively short shelf life of many present day electronic devices, more and more e-waste is generated each year. Often, these discarded devices end up in landfills or are incinerated, which can cause major environmental problems in our communities. April 22nd is Earth Day. This is a great time to clean out those server rooms and recycle those old monitors, PCs, printers and other devices. We work with a few great recycling companies and would be glad to put you in contact with them. Email us for more info.
