2.0 out of 5 stars Too much marketing, April 16, 2009
This review is from: Microsoft Voice and Unified Communications (Paperback)
The book is good for a beginner who does not know too much about the Unified Communications space. Having worked in this area for over 8 years I think talking so highly about Microsoft (everywhere) and saying that vendors like Cisco etc are lagging behind is plain lies. The truth is that Cisco leads this space and will continue to do so. Microsoft is just getting its act together and has a long way to go. Not to mention that they have some good ideas but now all vendors including IBM and Cisco have equivalent products.

Hilary - Many authors and businesses are reliant upon third party research from organizations like Gartner in order to be the authoritative voice. An example of this is the Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications. In 2008 and 2009, when Joe Schurman wrote this book, Microsoft was actually leading the Quadrant and was positioned ahead of Cisco. I have included a link from the Cisco website as a reference point. They were not far off and they werein the Leaders quadrant, but they were still behind Microsoft.
I also believe that when the author wrote this book he was headed to ?Avaya? if I recall correctly.
