Not completely sure on the PBX side of things. Nextcloud does support video conferencing, chatting etc.
(also on android using f.e. next cloud app + nextcloud talk).   It is webrtc based.

https://nextcloud.com/talk/

It claims to be able to use SIP gateways whith spreed backend.


Then there are:

Which need some integration work.

Unfortunately I don't think that any of those can do what Skype for Business can do. I guess FreePBX is the best solution since it has its own chat server and PBX tool along with it but it requires two different software to be installed.

Not sure what skype for business can all do. Nextcloud Talk cannot dial out to classic phones.

@noci it has response groups, works as PBX and can be directly integrated with SIP trunk, has calls, IMS, Video conferences and PSTN conferences as well. Also supports IVR And other functionalities.

FreePBX is the only opensource that has these features although chat app is not as rich as Skype and doesn't have a good Interface .

Thank you for your help.
