Resurgent Mitel pressing UC leaders hard

In my other recent post on the accelerating adoption of Microsoft Lync I made passing reference to Mitel as one of the players that gets it and is well positioned to succeed in the evolving world of business communications technology.

Their Q2 performance was encouraging – see the numbers here – but what has always impressed me about Mitel was the quiet professionalism and simple but effective product positioning that has characterised their execution in the last 3-4 years.

It would have been easy and tempting to write them off a few years ago as another of the PBX dinosaurs but a winning combination of architectural, commercial and channel decisions (including the consolidation with much-admired Aastra) has put them in the ‘Leaders’ box in Gartner’s vaunted Magic Quadrant for UC for the first time.

Good to see….
