Daimler selects Microsoft’s UC offering

Ad-hoc communications, conferencing and traditional e-mail communications in one offering

By CBR Staff Writer

Daimler has selected Microsoft’s unified communications, messaging and collaboration offerings to migrate its communication and collaboration architecture.

Under the agreement, Microsoft will enable Daimlers staff to exchange documents even beyond organisational boundaries by including ad-hoc communications, conferencing and traditional e-mail communications in one offering.

Microsoft said that the specification set by Daimler was to reduce the complexity of PC workstations and build a communication and collaboration architecture that will meet the requirements of future working processes.

The Microsoft platform with its Office 2010, Exchange Server 2010 and SharePoint 2010 would enable approximately 180,000 Daimler employees worldwide to communicate and collaborate using Microsoft technology through e-mail, instant messaging or Web conferences.

In addition, Daimler will use a service provider to support its infrastructure via a private cloud.

Microsoft Deutschland chairman of the management board Ralph Haupter said the company convinced Daimler of the added value of their technology and the project emphasises that the cloud has already been adopted by businesses and today’s discussion is about specific business scenarios.
