Dimension Data Wants to Sell 1m Lync Seats

Dimension Data plans to sell 1 million Microsoft Lync Enterprise Voice seats, delivered either on premise or private cloud, by 2017 as it believes the market is still wide open for the unified communications suite.

Fujitsu believes always-on business PCs consume too much power as it reveals the Esprimo X923 at CeBIT 2014-- an All-in-One (AIO) PC featuring unified communications capabilities and a special power-saving mode.

It carries a 2.3-inch display, Intel Core i4, i5 or i7 processors, up to 16GB RAM, storage via 1TB HDD or 500GB SSD and 6 USB ports together with UC features such as microphone, adjustable webcam, presence sensor and face-recognition software.
