Clarity Consulting Inc., a Microsoft technologies services and software company today announced that employee Michael Greenlee was designated as Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Microsoft Lync Server 2010. There are currently only 51 Lync MVP’s globally. Out of this group, less than five including Greenlee have a dedicated focus on Lync development.

Michael Greenlee focuses his efforts at Clarity on the Unified Communications practice, where he leads development of new products and custom solutions on the Lync platform, as well as supporting development and implementation of Clarity Connect for Clarity’s medium to large enterprise customers.  Clarity Connect is a product built exclusively for Microsoft Lync that re-imagines the contact center product by natively adding functionality to Microsoft’s Lync Server 2010. “The development platform for Lync has allowed Clarity to engineer a truly unique contact center product that our customers appreciate,” said Greenlee. “With the increasing popularity of Lync, more developers than ever are working with this platform, and I’ve tried to put together some resources for these new Lync developers, based on what I’ve learned, as a way of giving back to the community.”

Not only an MVP, Greenlee is a thought leader within the Unified Communications community. Last year, Greenlee and Clarity Principal Consultant George Durzi, wrote and published the definitive book on Microsoft Lync development entitled Professional Unified Communications Development with Microsoft Lync Server 2010. The book outlines how to build real software solutions on the Microsoft UC platform. Greenlee also regularly contributes to the Clarity Consulting blog.

“We are very proud of Michael’s designation as a Microsoft MVP. It signifies our continued commitment to our product development on top of Lync as well as the strength of our Unified Communications practice as a whole,” said Jon Rauschenberger, Chief Technology Officer and Partner, Clarity Consulting
