the real-time IT management company, today announced the addition of
Skype for Business server reports to Exchange
Reporter Plus
, its Exchange auditing, monitoring and reporting
solution. Available immediately, these new reports allow Exchange
administrators to get metrics on and analyze every aspect of their Skype
for Business environment.

While email is still the primary means of workplace communication, many
Windows-based organizations depend on Skype for Business for real-time
collaboration through calls, conferences and file transfers. Despite
giving employees a more efficient way to communicate and collaborate
with each other, Skype for Business presents some challenges for
administrators. When it comes to reporting, the Skype for Business
native control panel is cumbersome and time-consuming to use; PowerShell
is a good alternative but only for those proficient in scripting.

"With all the problems that come with native Skype reporting,
administrators are looking for a better alternative, one that's faster
and easier to use," said Manikandan Thangaraj, director of product
management at ManageEngine. "Going forward, we plan to make admins'
lives even easier by expanding the Skype for Business capabilities in
Exchange Reporter Plus to include auditing and monitoring features."
