3 Microsoft Lync for Enterprise and Government Microsoft Lync helps organizations reduce communications spend and enhance workforce productivity. Lync provides organizations with a central hub of communication by combining instant messaging, VoIP calling, live meetings, and videoconferencing. Lync integrates with Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and Office so that user presence information is visible, allowing instant messages or phone calls to be initiated with a click. Lync also integrates with existing PBX phone systems as well as offers enterprise telephony capabilities which can be used to dramatically drive down communication costs. Connect and collaborate virtually anywhere, anytime Reduce communication costs through consolidation Increase employee productivity and team collaboration Connect remote workers more effectively
4 The most efficient, reliable and secure way to run enterprise-class communication applications at scale. Moving to the cloud can offer rapid deployment, greater agility, and lower cost of ownership. However, for most large organizations, moving to the public cloud is impractical due to reliability concerns, security requirements, lack of control, and regulatory compliance.
