Every IT deployment is a balancing act: you have to weigh the costs against the benefits. A lot of data is available about what you have to invest to deploy Microsoft Lync. But it’s more difficult to quantify the return on your investment because Microsoft’s built-in tools focus on measuring service quality. That’s important, but it doesn’t help with the critical need you face to demonstrate adoption rates and ROI after you deploy Lync. In this webcast, we’ll discuss the monitoring and reporting tools that Lync provides for tracking usage and adoption, and we’ll cover important metrics that you’ll want to be familiar with. You will learn how to:

  • Gain insight into how and when users are using Lync
  • Identify actions you can take to increase usage and satisfaction
  • Compare usage to legacy communication systems
  • Plan for growth in your Lync usage rates and infrastructure
