The Via Group, a premier provider of unified communications solutions, presents the Dallas Lync Voice Summit on June 12, 2012. The daylong event, which is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., will be held at the La Cima Club in Irving, Texas.
The Via Group, which was recognized in 2011 as the U.S. Lync Voice Education Partner of the Year, is teaming with other Microsoft™ award-winning partners to deliver a dynamic event tailored for all IT professionals and purchasing decision makers. Premier partners Polycom®, SoftwareONE®, Plantronics®, NET®, Windstream® and CTREC Hilton IT Academy will offer tips and solutions for successfully integrating Microsoft Lync Server 2010™ into the organizational culture.
The VoIP platform, Microsoft Lync Enterprise Voice, enables enterprises to bundle all multimedia and communication channels into one consistent environment. The unified communication solutions extend to instant messaging, phone calls, multimedia conferencing and calendar tracking.
The Lync Voice Unified Communications Summit offers up an opportunity for IT experts to discuss the challenges and opportunities of migrating to the 2010 server. Participants will also have several opportunities to network with top industry executives and esteemed design engineers who specialize in providing the ultimate Microsoft Lync Experience.
After opening remarks on the Lync Connection, one of the morning breakout sessions will focus on Microsoft’s Communication Enhanced Business Processes (CEBP). This hour-long seminar aims to help attendees establish a business case for integrating multimedia platforms with Business Intelligence.
“Microsoft, in an effort to make its commodity stickier with OCS, has stumbled upon the reality that there is a great gaping void in our need to be quickly understood,” notes Erin Romeo of The Via Group.
