As VDI solutions such as VMware View gain market adoption and the technology evolves, continuing to offer end-users a PC like experience is important to sustain the upward growth trajectory. That is why unified communications is important to VDI vendors who need to continually reassure IT and end-users that the user experience will be the same as if they were working in a traditional personal computer.
Today, VMware proudly announces that VMware is working with Microsoft to bring support for Microsoft Lync to VMware View desktops. The combination of VDI with Unified Communications leads to increased productivity, mobility and flexibility for employees, customers and partners alike. Customers will be able to communicate and collaborate with the Lync 2013 client, using rich voice and video features, all from within the VMware View desktop.
