IR Prognosis for Unified Communications certified IT Pro Tool for monitoring

Great news just in from Enterprise Connect, where we have been advised IR Prognosis for Unified Communications (UC) has completed certification as an IT Pro Tool in monitoring for Skype for Business. Below is an excerpt from the news release put out today.

“The overall health and user experience of communications systems across the enterprise is mission critical,” said Srini Raghavan, Principal Product Management for Skype for Business at Microsoft. “Skype for Business IT Pro Tools partners help customers to accelerate deployment and adoption of Skype for Business and migration from existing legacy communications systems. We are pleased to see IR offer Prognosis for UC to ensure our mutual customers can deliver the best possible experience for their users.”

IR, already a Microsoft Gold Communications partner, has been a trusted Microsoft Unified Communications partner since 2010. IR Prognosis helps customers and partners successfully plan, deploy, test, operate and optimize Skype for Business across all aspects of the solution including voice, video, collaboration and conferencing. Its UC solution currently manages the performance of some of the largest Skype for Business installations in the world, including multiple customers with over 100,000 end points.

“IR is excited to continue our Microsoft relationship through this recent certification to help enable successful Skype for Business deployments and migrations,” said Darc Rasmussen, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, IR. “We are pleased to provide organizations with a UC performance management solution that can ensure they deliver a great user experience.”

IR Prognosis is a trusted solution responsible for managing the UC performance for over 120 of the Fortune 500 companies and over 13 million UC endpoints. Without requiring probes or taps, IR Prognosis provides a less network intrusive way to gain real-time insights and deep network visibility, across a broad multi-vendor communications environment while uniquely providing cognitive prediction and automation capabilities. This new certification combined with IR's newly expanded Testing Solutions offering represents IR's continued innovation and leadership in end-to-end performance management for UC and contact center solutions.

According to Gartner, “Regardless of whether a VoIP/UC environment is self-managed or maintained via a third party, VoIP/UC-specific monitoring tools are a fundamental prerequisite to the success of any VoIP/UC project.”*
