    While Skype for Business is an important driving force in today's enterprise communication's world, Microsoft isn't the only player. SIP and H.323 have dominated the video conferencing industry for two decades. Now new entrants have disrupted the market with "Lync integration" innovations, ease of use, and broad functionality stories, while the established leaders have responded with improved solutions that preserve the native experience on both sides of a Lync/Skype for Business connection. This session will explore the options today's enterprises have for integrating Skype for Business to their existing deployments. You'll come away with the understanding you need to craft a strategy for your enterprise.

    KEY QUESTIONS:

    • What are the latest developments in video conferencing in Skype for Business, both from Microsoft and from its partner ecosystem?
    • Who are the players in the Skype for Business video ecosystem, and how might your enterprise work with them?
    • How can you incorporate your enterprise's broader Skype for Business strategy into your existing video conferencing environment in a way that protects legacy investments but also moves forward with Skype for Business?
    • What have we seen from deployments of Lync and Skype for Business room video systems to date, in terms of adoption and user acceptance, and what does that tell us about what your enterprise can expect as you consider this migration?
