Toronto , ON, Canada, July 12, 2016 -- IR, a global provider of experience management solutions for unified communications and contact centers, announced that IR is one of the IT Pro Tool partners to support Skype for Business Online Network Readiness in the new Microsoft Skype Operations Framework (SOF).
The SOF addresses the Plan, Deliver and Operate phases of Skype for Business. A Network Readiness Assessment is a crucial part of the Plan phase to ensure that the network is prepared for Skype for Business and Microsoft has defined two levels of assessment to deliver this; Essentials and Advanced. IR has worked closely with Microsoft Skype for Business IT Pro Tools partner team to ensure that Prognosis meets all the requirements for both the Essentials Level, which is focused on readiness and identifying issues, and Advanced Level which offers root-cause analysis and remediation.
The recently announced IR Prognosis Pre-Assessment capabilities will provide insights to test the internal network, as well as connectivity to Skype for Business Online in the Office 365 cloud, and automatically detect likely issues in performance of voice, video, and desktop sharing and resolve them before migrating to a cloud or hybrid environment.
