Yesterday, Microsoft Netherlands organized the Heliview event about Unified Communications. Especially the new way of work and also we give a presentation about OCS how it integrates with MOSS and other Business Line Applications.
Download the presentation here.
We also demonstrate our new projects Silverlight in MOSS, UC Routing Engine etc.
The day was amazing and really great to expand your partner network. Microsoft Netherlands was founding partner and also e-office was having their own stand. Together with the colleagues in the Microsoft department we talked a lot about how OCS fit into the (HOT = Human, O= Organization and T= Technology) format. Most of the time especially the HO aspects are not covered in projects. We are primarily focused on this concept. Our stand was build up with one Roundtable three demonstration laptops with full blown OCS and presence balls ;-)
Good to see also new fresh guys giving customers the possibility to rollout OCS in one box (UC appliance). I was really surprised how they integrate OCS, OCS Edge and Mediation Server in one server completely redundant and manageable. Also the Microsoft Licenses are included. The whole OCS infrastructure completely deployed in 2 hours through a well designed WebUI. Different kinds of appliances are available from standard edition to enterprise edition and also virtualized appliances by Microsoft Hyper-V RC0 (RC1 is in testing). To be continued! We will post about this kind of services very soon.
Good to have more and more inspiration about new content I need to publish. Thanks for this day guys!
