Arganteal launches on the heels of global Skype for Business implementations and successful customer deployments

Businesses of all sizes understand the critical nature of collaboration solutions and are moving quickly to deploy solutions such as Microsoft Skype for Business (FKA Lync) to the cloud. Unfortunately, traditional deployment means hundreds of hours of engineering time and cost, not to mention the fear of “cloud provider lock”. Today Arganteal released its patented SaaS technology that intelligently packages up businesses goals and rules for Skype for Business into a virtualized deployment compiler. Using Arganteal enterprises and SMBs automate the deployment Skype for Business eliminating 60% of typical deployment time and any fear of locking the business into one specific cloud provider.

Arganteal Empowers Microsoft Partners in Skype for Business Deployments
Skype for Business has become a business-critical solution for organizations. Companies look to leading partners to help with these deployments, but want to also be assured of cost-efficiency, application optimization, and a promise that they won’t be locked into one platform vendor. Arganteal understands this desire and is focused solely on empowering this Partner ecosystem with a cutting-edge app deployment solution.

“Our initial objective is to provide solutions and services to VARs, SIs, and MSPs who work with SMB’s or large enterprises to deploy Skype for Business to a virtual computing platform,” said Arganteal CEO Steve Kelley. “Our technology is uniquely able to make application deployment projects more scalable, predictable, consistent, and profitable. Before we launched the solution for general availability we were determined to prove this fact out with leading Microsoft partners, and our work has already proven out a savings of 60-70% of traditional engineering time and cost.”

Arganteal intelligently automates the rapid deployment of Skype for business with a deployment automation compiler that transforms business goals for the Skype application into a virtualized deployment design and then into detailed implementation of the layers of the computing stack. This can be done for all variations of Skype for Business from dedicated desktop collaboration with embedded voice or complete traditional PBX replacement.

Arganteal Solution User Proof Points
Arganteal has been in stealth-mode for the past year developing, testing, and even deploying its solution in live environments. Already the Arganteal solution has proven successful for leading companies such as Dimension Data and Via Group in automating Skype for Business deployment and cutting engineering time by at least 60%:

“The Via Group has performed a successful trial on the Arganteal scripting tool set in a recent "live" production deployment for an international Supply Chain Management (SCM) firm with remote locations worldwide,” said Michael Cassady, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, VIA Group. “The solution proved to perform successfully in automating the set-up and configuration of the Lync core server environment."

"Arganteal has developed and implemented an elegant solution to automate the deployment of Microsoft Lync servers,” said Michael Poremba, National Services Operations Manager, Microsoft UC Solutions at Dimension Data. “Dimension Data was seeking an advanced solution to automate the build of our Microsoft training platform, consisting of upwards of 400 Virtual Machines divided into 13 independent platforms. Arganteal was not only able to help Dimension Data automate deployment but went further, building configurations into the platforms. They also provided scripts to setup break fix scenarios and redeploy the platforms to different states during our training classes."
