What Microsoft’s Skype4Biz-to-Teams Transition Means for You

Microsoft’s recent Ignite event had some critically important announcements for enterprise communications. Namely, Microsoft’s new Team Collaboration offering, Teams, will be its primary communication/collaboration client in Office 365, eventually displacing Skype for Business in that role. However, Microsoft also announced a new release of the on-premises version of the Skype for Business Server, indicating that Skype for Business will continue to be a CPE play for the enterprise for at least the rest of this decade. So how do these (and related) announcements jibe with each other, and more importantly, what do they mean for your enterprise—especially if you’ve already embarked on a Skype for Business migration and have been considering Office 365 integration?

In this 30-minute Webinar, your questions will be answered and addressed by Enterprise Connect’s leading expert on the Microsoft enterprise communications/collaboration environment, Kevin Kieller, partner at EnableUC. Kevin will review key announcements that came out of Ignite, Microsoft’s annual user conference, and give his assessment of what they mean for the enterprise. You’ll walk away having gained vital, timely information about the future of your Microsoft communications/collaboration solutions, and have the opportunity to gather expert advice to help inform your enterprise’s strategies moving forward.
