LOS ANGELES, Dec. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SADA Systems, global leaders in providing cloud consulting and strategic IT solutions, today announced it has achieved a Silver Communications Competency, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft Corp. customers' evolving needs in today's dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft Silver Competency, partners must successfully demonstrate expertise through rigorous exams, culminating in Microsoft certifications. And to ensure the highest quality of services, Microsoft requires customer references for successful implementation and customer satisfaction. As a result, SADA Systems expands its portfolio of Microsoft Cloud solutions to include new unified communications release: Skype for Business, an end-to-end meeting and voice solution.

Skype for Business builds on the familiar experience of Skype and the enterprise features of Lync, combining audio, video and web meetings in one unified platform supporting virtually any device. Strengthening SADA Systems' robust One Microsoft Solution and Office 365 portfolio, Skype for Business will join current Azure, Dynamics CRM Online, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Power BI, Yammer and Enterprise Mobility Suite offerings.

"The Skype for Business vision is all about modern collaboration within the Office 365 framework," said Tony Safoian, CEO and President, SADA Systems. "Our nine Gold and six Silver competencies showcase our expertise in today's technology market and demonstrate our knowledge of Microsoft cloud solutions. SADA is strategically poised to serve as technology advisors to enable our customers to stay connected in a modern world."

"By achieving a silver competency, SADA Systems has proven their expertise in specific technology areas, placing them among the top 5 percent of Microsoft partners worldwide," said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. "When customers look for an IT partner to meet their business challenges, choosing a company that has attained Microsoft competencies is a smart move. These are highly qualified professionals with access to Microsoft technical support and product teams."

Skype for Business allows organizations to lower TCO by consolidating all conferencing needs into one seamless user experience with professional meetings and collaboration. Features include Skype Meeting Broadcast, PSTN Conferencing and Cloud PBX with PSTN Calling.

These Skype for Business capabilities will be offered by SADA Systems as a standalone product as well as through Microsoft's new Office 365 E5 suite, which includes additional security and analytics features such as Power BI Pro, Advanced Threat Protection and Delve Analytics. SADA Systems' flexible deployment options will allow organizations to strengthen or replace existing conferencing solutions in order to save costs while providing high definition business communication.
