Ensim Enables Largest Lync Deployment in North AmericaEnsim Unify provides provisioning and management for Microsoft Office Communications Server (Lync), accelerating the deployment for customer of over 150,000 seats


Santa Clara, CA — September 22, 2009 — Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of change management, user provisioning and access control software, today announced that Ensim Unify Enterprise Lync Manager is being used to provision and manage what is currently the largest single Lync installation in North America. In less than 90 days, Ensim’s Lync Manager solved all the major provisioning and management requirements that had delayed the deployment of over 150,000 seats of Microsoft Office Communications Server (Lync) 2007.

A number of provisioning obstacles had stopped the customer from gaining the benefits of Lync. These obstacles included support for complex IT security and compliance policies, such as multiple provisioning workflows for different types of employees, multi-level help desk support, and minimizing the burden on IT caused by the manual update process. Ensim delivered a provisioning and management solution that integrated with the customer’s existing directory infrastructure and provisioning policies and supported different provisioning workflows, while automating the hundreds of daily manual updates. It also enabled delegated administration to support multi-level help desk operations, while offering full audit and reporting for these processes.

Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition is a complete, role-based access management solution that can be deployed just for Lync or across the entire unified communications (UC) infrastructure including email, VoIP, conferencing, collaboration, and instant messaging. Ensim’s Lync Manager enables businesses to realize the promise of unified communications without the pain of manual user provisioning and burdensome management. Lync Manager works with existing ID management solutions to allow organizations to take full advantage of all the new Lync 2007 features without imposing a burden on IT.

“Deployment of Lync 2007 often proves challenging for regulated organizations due to complex user entitlement policies,” said Scott Young, vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim Corporation. “By deploying Ensim Unify, our customer was able to solve its Lync provisioning and management challenges in less than 90 days, while enforcing the security and compliance policies required for its users. The effectiveness and scalability of Ensim Unify speaks for itself in this case, given the size of the Lync deployment it enabled.”

Key features of Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition Lync Manager include:

  • Ability to Integrate with Complex Provisioning Policies
  • Support for Multiple Provisioning Workflows
  • Automated Maintenance of Daily Manual Updates
  • Full Multi-level Help Desk Support
  • Detailed System Activity and Transaction Logging


“The ROI associated with deploying unified communications is significant, but many organizations are stuck at deployment or take on burdensome management tasks after deployment,” said David J. Wippich, chairman and CEO at Ensim Corporation. “Ensim Unify enables quick deployment, automation of maintenance tasks, and interoperability that leverages existing investments and policies that can be extended to UC apps like Lync.”
