The tech giant claims that the technology will bring about vast improvements to its Skype for Business product.

"In the future, using the technology acquired today, we will be able to add strong diagnostics and troubleshooting capabilities with even more extensive reporting and analytics for online audio, videoconferencing and media streams – all within a unified management and admin system."
