Business owners are generally aware that Windows Server 2003 has reached end of life—that is, the product is no longer being produced, marketed or supported by Microsoft. Some of these business owners, however, lack visibility into exactly which of their business applications are still running on this expired server, which can pose serious security threats to their organizations. In fact, the platform is being touted by multiple publications as the “biggest security threat in 2015.”
Tens of thousands of customers use Esna’s embedded UC&C products in order to seamlessly communicate and collaborate; however, there are only a few who skillfully work behind the scenes to make the magic happen. In our “Get to Know the Developers” series, we’ll be pulling back the curtain to reveal who some of these experts are. Most recently we featured our Senior Product Manager Bryan Dingwall. Now we’re casting the spotlight on Product Manager Pedram Mohammadi, who recently sat down to discuss what he loves most about his role and why he’s passionate about Esna’s products.
As technology vendors broaden their service offerings in an effort to gain market share, enterprise customers have more options than ever for excelling communications and collaboration.
For more than 25 years, Esna has developed enterprise software solutions that integrate communication and collaboration tools into the business applications that we use everyday to get work done. We boast a long history in this space, dating back to the 1990s when our products integrated with desktop applications in Windows 95 and Microsoft Outlook.
In Part 1 of this series, we discussed the adoption and maturation of Microsoft Office 365. The tool is preferred among many enterprises for its usability and reliability when it comes to internal and external collaboration. But that doesn’t mean Office 365 is the be-all and end-all solution for streamlining and accelerating collaborative efforts.
According to Microsoft’s Q22015 reported earnings released in January, Office 365 helped drive cloud computing revenue towards an incredible 114 percent growth, contributing to annual revenue of $5.5 billion. With an estimated 46 million paid Office 365 subscribers in use today—according to some estimates that number climbs to 80 million when factoring in trial users, etc.—chances are your organization relies on this cloud-based application for optimizing internal and external communications and collaboration.
