Back in January, Citrix and Microsoft introduced our new co-developed solution for delivering Skype for Business in virtualized environments. As emphasized by Microsoft Corporate VP Brad Anderson (see this 40s video segment from Synergy 2016), “This is the only VDI solution that Skype for Business has been optimized for.” Microsoft recommends using the new HDX RealTime Optimization Pack solution in all new deployments, and customer response has been hugely positive.
So, where do we go from here?
Over the next few months, you’ll see further updates and as we continue our joint roadmap planning process, we’re looking for your input to help us prioritize the enhancements that would be most meaningful to your business. We want to hear from you! Bearing that in mind, we’ve created a survey and I invite you to please take some time to complete it at your earliest convenience.
What kind of devices do you connect to Skype? If you’ve evaluated the 2.1 release of the HDX RealTime Optimization Pack, what feedback would you like to share about it? Do you use Media Bypass? Call Admission Control? What are the most important enhancements that Citrix and Microsoft could deliver?
Thanks, in advance, for helping us meet your critical business needs with Skype for Business and the HDX RealTime Optimization Pack!
