We bought into Lync some years ago--what an inefficient and ridiculously complex tool.
It migrated to Skype a while later, which is only slightly better.
Now we're moving to Team as Microsoft forces Skype into the trash bin.
I expect by this time next year our Skype for 17,000 employees will be gone, replaced by Team.
How are your Skype plans going?
In the same boat we had silly license issues so became useless then half of the company couldn’t use it externaly.
We have just got team but didnt realise it replaced lync thought it was just another tool.
used it for a bit but just seemed to hit barriers with it so not used it since.
antbody fancy trying to sell it to me as dont see any benefits
also will solarwinds do anything out of the box to monitor it?
We just implemented Skype.... I was a LYNC user in a previous life....
not terribly impressed with Skype. I suspect we will be doing Team shortly as well because of Skype's "issues".... (much sooner than later ..)
2018 will be anything but boring in my world!
Same boat for us. We have limited deployment of Lync/Skype but have it on the radar to upgrade to Team sometime after April. Looking to see what people describe about their experiences.
Maybe I got the wrong impression of Teams, but I found it to be the „EOC“ for Skype, SharePoint, OneNote, Exchange. We use it to bring all the information from these tools together. However we still use Skype etc. as stand-alone
We use it not on a daily but weekly basis. We have a few clients that use it as well so we can keep in touch very quickly and maybe get some issues resoved over screen sharing. Video-Conferencing....not too often.
Currently using Cisco Jabber and Cisco VOIP and it works perfectly. Used Jabber and Microsoft VOIP at my last job and it was a mess.
Skype for IM is fine and actually works pretty well in some cases.
Skype for VoIP is abysmal.
We have switched from Cisco, to Shortel, and now Skype/Lync, and I have to say, the last is the worst by far.
