Microsoft Unified Communications Road Show

Hi,

Coming up this October/November is a great opportunity to get the latest info about MS Unified Communications platform including Exchange 2007, OCS 2007 and Windows Mobile 6.

In collaboration with some key partners MS is running a UC Road Show in several cities across the UK.

In particular I will be at the event on the 25th October run by Dimension Data. I will then be running a MMMUG meeting straight afterwards which will include a Panel discussion of the future of UC

To sign up to either event see here:

For an overview of the MS Road Show see below:

Microsoft UK’s best and brightest Unified Communications (UC) specialists will all be there to guide you through Exchange Server 2007, Office Communications Server 2007,  Mobility and the rest of the Unified Communications stack. You’ll learn, first-hand, how Exchange 2007 has changed due to customer feedback,  how to migrate from your existing solution to a unified communications solution and how Office Communications Server 2007 can help you users communicate better and much more. They will share with you all the inside info, including insider tips, those important “gotchas” and demos that will bring this to life.

Sessions will include:

· Exchange Server 2007 including SP1,  an architectural overview and details on how it integrates into the rest of the UC suite

· How to migrate from your existing platform to a new UC platform.  Its not just ‘move mailbox’.  This section will cover other parts of migration including storage, public folders and hardware.

· How email and voicemail are coming together in Exchange 2007 in Unified Messaging.  Also covered in this section is how Outlook Voice Access give can give you another way in which to interact with your inbox.

· Real world experience from a partner including a customer case study (slightly changed for EPG version – to just customer)

· Mobility and how Windows Mobile,  Exchange 2007 and Office Communications Server 2007 provide secure and scalable communications such as email,  calendaring, presence and IM across an array of mobile devices.

· Office Communications Server 2007.  Communication can be seen, typed or heard.  Hear about the latest entrant into the Unified Communications stack and how it will change the way in which people will communicate forever.
