Weekend Quickie: Good News For Lync Voice

I’m sitting here writing this from my phone this weekend, on the go. I had to smile because the two main competitors I have for a Lync voice proposal have been popping up in my news feed. I thought it would be fun to share.

First, Siemens Unify. They’re cutting their workforce in half via layoffs due to a shift in the UC market towards software and cloud services. Definitely no shock to Lync specialists like you and me.

Next, Cisco. Looks like Lync momentum is really showing. Microsoft has overcome Cisco’s lead in enterprise collaboration sales for the first time.

Go, Microsoft, go! All good news for those of us who love Lync!
