Implementing Microsoft Office: Skype for Business

By: Tim ClarkAdjunct Research Advisor

Abstract

This IDC Perspective provides advice and guidance to IT executives implementing Skype for Business (SfB) as part of their transition to Microsoft's Office 365 platform. Skype for Business Online, an Office 365 SaaS offering, enables instant messaging (IM), user presence awareness (the user's online status), web voice/video meetings, screen sharing, remote control, and file sharing. Its strength in increasing collaboration and productivity through integrated communications is a core component of the digital transformation that businesses undergo to remain relevant and competitive.

"A move to SfB will touch every member of the enterprise, and comprehensive migration planning and preparation are crucial for success," says Tim Clark, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP).
