Windows User Group Event: Office Communications Server Technical Overview

June 18, 2009

The Irish Windows User Group will be running a session focusing on OCS, aka Office Communications Server.  The speaker is John McCabe, a senior engineer with CDSoft. 

Mobile users and mobile computing have enabled a more flexible workforce but there is a challenge in enabling communications that are just as flexible and mobile.  OCS can be used to resolve these issues.  For most of us, this is an alien world and we just wouldn’t know where to start.  This session aims to show you how you can use OCS to resolve communications issues in your business.

The Agenda

  • Discussion about unified communications (UC) and a quick open forum: This is to facilitate if people know what UC is to give them background information and concepts regarding it and then a quick open forum of topics/questions they would like emphasised in the run through
  • Deployment Scenarios – Internal Deployments: A Discussion on the types of deployment you can have internally in your organisation
  • Deployment Scenarios – (Remote Access/Federation/Public IM): A discussion on the types of deployment you can have for external users and internal users to communicate outside the organisation
  • Break
  • Planning For Unified Communications: Detail the process about planning for a deployment in your organisation and some of the factors you have to think about
