How to Plan & Prepare for Skype for Business – Webinar Recap

It’s official – as of mid April, which was covered in another post – Microsoft Lync is now Skype for Business. As expected, customers who have Lync deployed either on premises or in the cloud have questions, and folks who use Skype for personal use are wondering how well this communication tool, which works wonders to connect with family and friends, crosses the chasm into enterprise-grade unified communications.
All these questions made for a popular webinar topic last week. Nick Elniff, a senior technical consultant at Perficient who works within our unified communications practices, packed a lot of information into the 50 minute session.
He began with a brief history lesson on Microsoft and unified communications, and then shared with attendees what the change means from a rebranding perspective, and the different clients and timelines for availability. He compared the differences in the interfaces, and then showed what’s new beyond the new look.
It’s definitely a webinar worth reviewing, whether it’s the slides or the replay. You can find both here.
