Launch of Microsoft Lync Migration Webinar Series

February 8, 2012

AudioCodes and Microsoft to present
“Migrate to UC with Microsoft Lync” educational webinar series Monthly webinar series to feature presenters
from Microsoft and industry-expert guest speakers  

One of the projects I've been working on this last month is a eight-part monthly educational webinar series focused on enterprise  migration paths to Unified Communications (UC) with Microsoft Lync. 

My goal of the eight-part webinar series is to educate businesses and the partner community on various Lync deployment options, best practices and technical “tips” on how to effectively make the migration to a full Unified Communications environment with Microsoft Lync.  I've worked dilligently to secure a group of industry experts,  VSPs, VARs, and Microsoft as presenters for the series, responding to feedback from previous event attendees who continue to ask for more in-depth  sessions with greater technical detail, more “how to” content and additional customer case studies.

Guest Speakers

The UC Migration webinar series will feature presentations from:

  • Thomas Binder, Architect Voice CoE,  Microsoft
  • Michael Nelson, Vice President of Integrated Access Solutions (IAS)
  • Pascal Menezes, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft
  • François van Hemert, Architect Voice CoE, Microsoft
  • Tarek Radi, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft
  • Jon Morrow, Senior Program Manager – Unified Communications, Microsoft
  • Chris Sheridan, Solutions Architect, Sentri and a vTSP for Microsoft

…and others to be announced

Webinar series abstract: Unified Communications with Microsoft Lync offers to dramatically improve employee efficiency and reduce communications costs.
