Headquartered in Osaka, Japan, Sharp Corporation delivers an ever-evolving product line that includes revolutionary multifunction business products, renewable energy-creating solar panels, energy-efficient televisions, and LED lighting. With a globally dispersed workforce, the company relies heavily on audio and video conferencing to help bring teams together to develop and sell products. To provide a better solution for ad hoc collaboration that also included presence awareness, instant messaging, desktop sharing, and enterprise voice, Sharp is planning to deploy Microsoft Lync Server 2010. With this technology, the company expects to improve communication between teams while also reducing costs for hardware, travel, and phone charges.
