MICROSOFT ACQUIRES BRISBANE TECH MICROSOFT has acquired a Brisbane company's technology to enhance its Skype experience.

The multinational has acquired technology assets underlying the UC Commander product suite from Event Zero.

The Brisbane company is a leading provider of management software for Skype for Business Online.

Microsoft corporate vice president Zig Serafin says the acquisition will allow the corporation to expand and improve the built-in management tools for Skype for Business.

"It's the latest example of Microsoft's commitment to deliver a complete, enterprise-grade communications solution at global scale with Office 365," says Serafin.

"Our goal is to make the Skype for Business management tools as powerful and easy-to-use for IT professionals as Skype is for end users."

In the future, the company says it will be able to add strong diagnostics and troubleshooting capability with even more extensive reporting and analytics, all within a unified management and admin system, for audio, video and other media streams.
