The guys at NIC have invited me back for a second time in January next year to present on Lync in Oslo. This year’s event was really well done with an impressive keynote (Jeffrey Snover nonetheless!) and 2 days packed with valuable infrastructure sessions. In 2014, the focus is on cloud and I’ll be presenting some Lync 2013 sessions relating to best practice and infrastructure awareness.
Fellow Lync MVP Ståle Hansen will also be presenting Lync sessions on video interoperability and how Lync integrates with Exchange Server.
Here’s the two sessions I’ll be delivering:
Enhancing your Lync 2013 rollout to make it a killer success for the business
Learn about functionality you need to think of to meet all the business requirements during a UC rollout that Lync out of the box doesn’t provide. In this session, I’ll cover options regarding operator console, call center software, voicemail compliance, call recording, SBCs and other products that can enhance your deployment.
Understanding how Lync Server 2013 leverages the complete Microsoft infrastructure ecosystem
Sometimes we forget how many other products Lync connects to and leverages. In this session, I’ll cover how Lync uses SQL, Active Directory, Exchange Server, the network, DHCP, DNS, Windows Fabric, Office, Windows client and much more!
NIC Cloud Edition is on January 16th-17th at Oslo Spektrum and offers not just UC topics but sessions on System Management, Virtualisation, Cloud Services, client management and loads more. For more info check out the agenda here.
