Skype for Business 2016 is a marked improvement from Lync. Overall utilization across all technology devices (computers, tablets, iPhones, iPads) was guaranteed and allows an easy user experience for our employees.
Communicate, communicate, communicate.
Ease of use has changed the way our senior management engages with management at the varied national sites. Awareness helps to minimize formal meetings and allows for ad hoc real time communications to deal with issues when they are occuring or pertinent.
Still not as good as Webex when meeting with those outside the organization, but close.
More user awareness to the upcoming change and sharing of ease of use, dont fear change.

Integration with some other systems was a little difficult in some cases such as Cisco UCM, but in the end, we have a stable environment that serves our user base well
Don't underestimate the integration of this product. You will need to have a good understanding of your Exchange and AD environment to make Lync a success in your organization. Planning is key.
It integrates well with our existing Microsoft infrastructure.
I have no current issues with the product.
I would like to see SCCM modules for deploying Lync updates without downtime.

The 3rd party provider that we selected, had a lot of experience with implementing Skype for Business.
My advice would be to communicate a detailed overall objective to all internal IT resources.
I like the ease of use and added ability to communicate differently.
I haven’t found anything that I dislike about the product.
Our vendor did a great job. No regrets.
If could start over, I would have communicated a detailed overall objective to all internal IT resources.

I would like to see more and easier integration with Polycom.
work in your UC strategy first. plan more execute less.
It is very user-friendly, integrates very well with many other platforms.
not easy to integrate with room conference systems.
I would like to have more interaction with Microsoft in that product and product roadmap.
We could have a UC strategy, have a better communication, marketing concept.

Overall, this implementation went very well.
Use pilot and encourage adoption rather than be too heavy-handed.
Integration with Microsoft Office/SharePoint and overall functionality.
Lack of persistent chat.
Allow for persistent chat (so users can come and go to a room if invited and see past posts).
Build more use cases and see more.
