What do VMware and Citrix bring to market for the Skype for business customer?
Today at VMworld 2016 Europe VMware announced a technical preview of a new Skype for Business solution for VMware Horizon. Earlier this year Citrix announced that they had a special relationship with Microsoft and that the Microsoft Skype for Business plugin was developed for them. VMware was left in the corner with only a working Lync 2013 plugin, clearly not enough to win customers in the future.
At VMworld we had a meeting were we discussed the issue with Shawn Bass, our customer and our future customers are looking for solutions that would include Microsoft Skype for business. At that time nothing was clear and no products was available for our customers. So now a mere two months later the world has changed so it seems, VMware and Microsoft have intensified their relationship on the end user side and Microsoft Skype for business can be deployed with all functionality on a VMware Horizon environment.
