Ensim and BroadSoft to Deliver Complete Unified Communications Solution Integrated With Microsoft Applications for Telecommunications Service Providers

Companies to Demo First Customer Implementation at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2009

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/13/09 -- WPC09, Booth # 327 -- Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of change management, user provisioning and access control software, together with BroadSoft®, today announced a collaborative demonstration of a new unified communications (UC) solution based on Ensim Unify, the leading provisioning platform for automating the creation, activation and configuration of hosted IP, SaaS and application services. The new solution, which has been successfully deployed by Outsourcery Limited (formerly Genesis Communications Limited), a U.K.-based provider of UC and hosted IT solutions, will be demonstrated at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2009 in New Orleans.

Based on Ensim's latest release of Ensim Unify Service Provider Edition, 4.7.0, the production-ready system features support for BroadSoft's BroadWorks® VoIP application platform, the Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration (HMC) 4.5, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 to provide a robust solution for service providers looking to deliver a complete "Unified Communications Solution as a service" offering to small and medium-sized enterprises.

"Creating a comprehensive hosted UC solution presents a unique set of challenges due to the complexity of integrating multiple applications from multiple vendors in a unified and turnkey manner," said David J. Wippich, president and CEO of Ensim Corporation. "Ensim Unify enables service providers to quickly, easily and inexpensively launch and manage a hosted UC offering that combines state-of-the-art, self-management capabilities with unrivaled flexibility."

"This combined effort provides Outsourcery with the ability to revolutionize the way start-ups and SMBs consume and pay for all their communications and IT needs," said Piers Linney, director of Outsourcery. "By offering a complete hosted UC solution on a per user, per month basis, SMBs gain access to enterprise-level solutions without the need for expensive hardware or onerous maintenance contracts."

The companies will host a demonstration of the UC solution during the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, July 13-16. The demo includes the following features:

--  Ensim Unify BroadWorks Manager -- gives service providers enhanced
    capabilities to automate provisioning and integrate with their existing
    Operational Support System (OSS) to rapidly introduce, deliver, and manage
    VoIP services.
--  Ensim Unify Exchange Manager -- allows service providers and resellers
    to flexibly combine Exchange Server 2007 functions into a full range of
    custom service plans.
--  Ensim Unify OCS (R2) Manager -- a complete, role-based access
    management solution that can be deployed just for Office Communications
    Server 2007 R2 or across the entire unified communications infrastructure;
    enables self-service for management of features like group chat lists.
--  Complete UC functionality -- integrated business telephony, video
    telephony, collaboration, call centers, mobile/wireless integration, and
    CEPBP/enterprise application integration for key business tools like CRM
    and ERP.
    

"The global unified communications market is growing to be a $6 billion market opportunity for service providers," said John Zanni, general manager of Worldwide Software Plus Services in the communications sector at Microsoft Corp. "The ability for industry partners such as Ensim to provide a complete UC solution offers a real-time experience for end users by integrating telephony and desktop applications without carrying costs of IT equipment and support."

"Unified Communications is incredibly powerful, but often its cost and complexity has made it accessible only to large enterprises," said David Bukovsky, vice president of products, BroadSoft®. "This has been a major impetus behind the growing demand for 'UC as a Service' -- UC provided 'in the cloud' by service providers. This collaborative solution not only gives service providers the capability to fulfill a market demand, but it does so in a way that allows them to rapidly and cost effectively scale and grow their business."

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several long phases into a faster, more efficient process. This methodology has a name, of course: Continuous delivery. As Jones pointed out at CloudEXPO, continuous delivery allows developers to trim the fat off tasks and gives them more time to focus on the individual parts of the process. But remember-implementing this methodology requires organizations to offload management of databases, infrastruct...
