Skype for Business

Skype for Business
Skype for Business is a cloud-based communications service that connects people and technology anytime, anywhere.

What does this mean?

Skype for Business uses the power of Office 365 to make collaboration easier. It brings together instant messaging, file transfer/sharing plus video and audio conferencing in one intuitive application. Skype for Business also includes virtual whiteboards and screen sharing, which means your colleagues can see what you see. It means that ideas and plans are shared immediately with the group.

Skype for Business is the closest thing to collaborating in person, with the added benefit of recording the meeting outcomes as you go. Skype for Business also integrates seamlessly with other software packages in the Microsoft suite. Functionality is managed in the cloud, making collaboration easier and more available than ever before.



What is the cloud?

The cloud is essentially another word for the Internet. Cloud computing allows users to store and access data and programs over the Internet instead of from your computer’s hard drive. This means that files and programs can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection, rather than just on one computer or device.
