At Tech.Ed Australia Ian Palangio and I did a 75 presentation that contained no PowerPoint slides. It was a complete demonstration of Unified Communications and Collaboration technologies available from Microsoft including:
- Office 2007
- Office Groove 2007
- Office SharePoint Server 2007
- Office Communicator 2007
- LiveMeeting Hosted Service
- Office Communications Server 2007
- Exchange Server 2007 including Unified Messaging
An interesting thing is that we completely performed our demonstration live on Microsoft infrastructure - the real stuff that Ian and I (plus 100,000 others) use every day. We connected remotely into Microsoft's network and completed a complete project centric demo. Ian was connected via VPN, and I was VPN-less on a very slow network. My (very) slow network actually wasn't deliberate, it was due to infrastructure issues at the event - but it ended up showing some of the capabilities of our technologies on low-bandwidth/high-latency networks quite well.
Ian has created a Word document of what our demonstration script was, and screen shots of what was shown. For those that attended, you can follow through this content easily. For others, it is a long demonstration scenario around how a company could run an Innovation or R&D type project - in our case it was around the development of a Bluetooth integrated Bicycle Helmet.
