Due to the great success of Aivea's engineering talent and the wonderful support of our customers, we bought a new Class A office building in Beaverton, OR near Nike. We're in the process of doing the interiors tailored for the SCRUM software development process. We need more square feet per employee than most companies because every Aivea employee can get a full 10' x 10' office to themselves. Construction started this past Monday and we're supposed to be moved in entirely by February 2nd week.
We have been looking at an IP based integrated messaging solution (Phone, Instant Messaging, Conferencing, Presence, Integration with our offices in Seattle, Sunnyvale and Bangalore). Microsoft Office Communication Server (OCS) 2007 Enterprise Edition is a great fit for our needs of messaging and voice collaboration for about 100+ employees.
We are implementing OCS 2007 with Polycom CX 700 devices in the reception and conference rooms and Office Communicator 2007 for individual employees. The media gateway is from Audiocodes. OCS 2007 will be running on a HP Proliant D140 hardware with Windows 2003 standard and SQL Server 2005 enterprise.
