Microsoft Lync Server ConsultingMicrosoft announced the release of Microsoft Lync Server 2010, the latest evolution of Microsoft's unified communications software formerly called Office Communications Server, Live Communications Server, and Microsoft Communicator. In addition to centralizing the management of Instant Messaging and Presence, the Lync platform allows desktops and mobile devices to escalate a simple interaction between users to include IM, Presence, video and audio conferencing, as well as sharing of images, files, applications, and desktops. Lync Server 2010 also combines IM and Presence with advanced voice management and conferencing features to allow companies to enhance or replace business-critical communications infrastructure including PBX and video conferencing systems, which can dramatically accelerate return on investment in Lync technology.

Note: Lync Server has been replaced by Skype for Business as a self-hosted communications server and by Microsoft Teams as an Azure cloud-hosted collaboration platform. Progent offers remote and on-premises consulting expertise and technical support to help organizations plan and carry out an efficient Skype for Business migration. Progent can also assist your business to upgrade to Microsoft's current cloud-based collaboration solution by providing Microsoft Teams planning and integration support.

The heart of Lync Server's functionality and the key to its business value is that it leverages the collaborative benefits of IM and Presence across common software applications, business activities, and computing devices by providing a centrally managed, highly protected, and easily expanded platform that works with existing IT infrastructure. Lync Server makes IM and Presence capabilities available to everyone from any location through its close integration with familiar software products including Microsoft's Office suite, Exchange, and SharePoint and by supporting Windows, Apple Mac, and Linux desktops as well as BlackBerries, iPhones, Windows Phones and other web-enabled smartphones.

Key Features of Lync Server 2010
Lync Server 2010 ConsultingLync Server 2010 offers a rich set of features to deliver a state-of-the-art unified communications solution. In the areas of Presence and IM, Lync Server supports a Presence icon that lets users determine the availability of contacts and start an interaction with one click from within Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or a SharePoint site. Contact information is centrally stored in Exchange to simplify management and maintain consistency, and IM history can be archived for easy recall or auditing. Through Federation, Presence and IM capability can include external Lync Servers and public IM networks. A new Skill Search feature powered by SharePoint allows users to identify and contact experts based on experience, interest, or group membership.

Conferencing functions supported by Lync Server 2010 include one-click conferencing, which allows users to schedule, begin, or join a meeting instantly. A new whiteboarding feature allows conference presenters to create on-the-fly slides and share them in real time. The slides can include charts, drawings, text, or cut-and-paste objects. Desktop and application sharing allows presenters to broadcast selected parts of desktop screens, applications, web pages, and documents, to send keystroke and mouse data, and to delegate control to other conference attendees. Lync Server also allows meetings to be recorded and played back either in their entirety or in selected segments.

Lync Server 2010 allows businesses to create an enterprise-class IP-PBX system that supports features such as click to call, call hold, waiting, transfer, direct to voicemail, and reverse number lookup. Advanced PBX features include IM, rich Presence, video conferencing, automated attendant, multi-media calls, single-number reach, and per-user archiving of incoming and outgoing calls. Close integration with Active Directory and SQL Server support key management functions such as dial plans and call authorization.
