The next step in integrating a new solution with an on-premise, cloud, or hybrid environment is to ensure you have all of the necessary components running. Having a user environment, user interface, software integration, hardware integration, infrastructure, and your overall network in line is the only way to successfully adopt a new program. This step can be challenging, however, because just one missing component could be detrimental to your end goal.
Plus, it is important to note that a communications and collaboration solution such as Microsoft Teams / Skype for Business utilizes an organization’s existing applications. Integrated messaging, voice, video, and collaboration are layered onto what your organization is already using. This creates a unified communications experience by improving the current workspace, not by completely replacing it.
That being said, if any aspect of your current applications are not running as desired, a new solution will not fix the problem. For a new solution to run properly and seamlessly, your organization’s applications must be ready to accept them. Once that is complete, you are one huge step closer to increased efficiency, productivity, and effective management with an UC solution that ensures all your business and IT objectives are being met.
