Live in or around London, free on the 28th July?

June 25th, 2011 | Tags: ,

If the answer is yes, then Justin Morris Tom Arbuthnot and myself would welcome you to our first Microsoft Unified Communications User Group London or MUCUGL event.

This recently formed user group is being run by Justin, Tom, John Lamb (a fellow Lync MVP) and myself, if you’d like to learn more about us, then head to the MUCUGL website here. Alternatively if you would like to know more about the user group, head here.

In this, our first MUCUG event, the first presentation by Adam Jacobs will introduce Lync Server and some high level differences over OCS. In the second session Justin Morris will talk about the resilience capability available in Lync Server, demonstrating how the Microsoft UC stack could replace an enterprise PBX.

We’d also like to encourage attendees bring their own topics for a chalk and talk session, for example, particular adoption or environmental barriers (existing voice setup, business case suggestions or integration opportunities).

Finally Tom Arbuthnot will cover off an industry update, including notable new resources, announcements and futures. Q. & A. and then to the pub!

A full agenda can be found below, we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
