TechNet in the North: Microsoft’s vision for Unified communications
2pm - 5pm
Microsoft's Vision for Unified Communications
Speaker: James O'Neill, IT Professional Evangelist
Following on from the success of the MSDN events in the North, Black Marble are now able to bring you the first of the TechNet in the North events, in partnership with Microsoft.
We talk about the “new world of work” and the “millennial generation”, but what does that mean for how we go about communicating in business ? This session will look at how life is changing and how Microsoft technologies like Live Meeting, Round Table, Exchange and office communications server fit together to address communications needs of a modern business, giving a broad overview of each of the technologies, and demonstrating as many of them as possible (within limitations imposed by the venue). We’ll look at the move from voice mail to unified messaging, the difference between UM and the presence driven world of Unified communications and look at the new devices from Microsoft and partners which are going into this market.
