In any organization, there has to be a platform which can provide instant support, collaboration, communication, resource sharing, video conferencing and online meetings. Microsoft Lync server provides a platform and an infrastructure, which helps in achieving the collaborations in real time. Some of the bold feature that it provides are: Real time presence, instant messaging, VoIP, structured conference facilities (all video, audio and web) and ad hoc.
All these features are available for an organization, among various organizations and also with public users over the internet. Microsoft Lync and Microsoft Lync for Mac work as a client for the Lync platform server. Microsoft Lync is customizable through Lync SDK.
The rich platform server was further loaded with many more useful features and was released as Lync Server 2013. It was a market hit and was evident by a 30% growth in the revenue in the year 2013. The video conferencing facility was further enhanced by addition of HD quality resolution to provide a clean and crisp interactive session. Standard Video Codec is used by Lync 2013 as it supports a wide range of devices and platforms.
Lync 2013 has App sharing and content sharing facilities, which were not there in the earlier version of Lync. It provides an effective and interactive method of communication when there are product demonstrations, reviews and walk through.
There are many small and big organizations that are introducing Lync 2013 training and Lync server 2013 training as they are planning to make Lync their primary platform for communication. Many big companies understand the requirement and the value of a common and unified communication platform.
It looks like it’s all uphill for Lync, and people are eagerly waiting for what Lync has to offer next.
