Hybrid Cloud UC Solutions
Skype for Business Online, along with related services like Skype Meeting Broadcast, PSTN Conferencing, and Cloud PBX with PSTN Calling offers more choices for your enterprise – and also more questions and decisions about architecting and running your UC system. Like many applications taken to the cloud, Skype for Business Online holds the potential to improve business, foster growth while reducing costs, and minimize risks while increasing agility. The challenge is figuring out the right mix of private, public, and hybrid cloud UC solutions – and how you’re going to achieve optimal operational readiness when multiple technologies and IT teams are critically interdependent on each other.
Simply deploying UC in the cloud doesn’t guarantee a highly functional, available UC solution your employees will readily adopt. To get there without losing visibility and control of service levels, you need the ability to track, analyze, and alert on availability and performance metrics. Microsoft’s new Skype Operations Framework (SOF) helps provide the guidance and tools for implementing SfB in the cloud.
If the complexity of running a hybrid cloud UC solution is too daunting, Unify Square offers your IT team the option of either a robust software-as-a-service SfB operations suite OR a complete hand-off to our cloud managed services team. PowerSuite can help you managed your Skype for Business Online pilots in conjunction with your core on-prem deployment and then (when the timing is right) also help you structure and manage the transition from on-prem and hybrid to the full cloud.
