Do More with Microsoft 365 Briefing
Thursday, March 14, 2024 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am MST

Join us for this briefing event to learn how to do more with Microsoft 365 and get your business AI-ready

'Doing more with Microsoft 365' means maximizing the impact of Microsoft 365 solutions while simplifying licensing, management, and vendor landscapes. Pressures from the evolving global economy are requiring organizations like yours to reduce costs, improve security, and optimize productivity and collaboration as they prepare their businesses for the era of AI. By delivering the Do More with Microsoft 365 Briefing, we help customers identify cost savings and explore a proactive AI strategy to get their entire organization ready for Microsoft 365 Copilot.

Andrew Woods and Sean Halliday will focus on four areas of impact: 

  • Setting up a strong Zero Trust foundation. A Zero Trust strategy may look complex if you think about its entire architecture. But with a single integrated solution, you can secure and manage identities, defend against threats on multiple platforms while protecting information across your data estate, and finally, create a simplified IT environment with Microsoft 365 to free time for IT and security admins to elevate their focus for higher-value activities.
  • Streamlining endpoint management. We will show you examples of how Microsoft 365 can improve support and reduce incidents, while empowering IT to deploy any endpoint from the cloud and delivering the best experience for users and support professionals with Windows 11.
  • Driving productivity and collaboration. We believe in energized and empowered employees. Let us demonstrate how to get everyone connected and working together from anywhere, at any time with Microsoft Teams. 
  • Elevating productivity with Microsoft 365 Copilot. Join us to discover a new way of working with Microsoft 365 Copilot to unleash creativity, unlock productivity, and elevate the skills of your teams.

Teams Calling: Empowering IT Pros for Voice

If we look at the pros and cons of going to Teams for Voice, one of the things that stand out a lot is how you take IT Pros and empower them to also be Voice Pros.  Managing users, managing Phone System, managing quality and PSTN services can easily become part of the day of some of the same Admins that handle Office365. 

In this session we will show how Phone system is easy to manage in Office365 and how voice can go from being a vertical of its own to being a subset of Office365 and Teams.

Target Audience: This session gets a bit more technical and is targeted at ITDMs/IT professionals.

Teams Calling Plans and Direct Routing

Customers can choose to have Microsoft as telephony provider using Calling Plans in some countries like Canada and the USA, among others and/or can choose to use Direct Routing, Microsoft’s program to enable third party telephony providers and partners connect to Office365. 

In this session we will discuss how each option has its benefits and we will look at high level topologies and use cases to help understand both possibilities.

Target Audience: This is targeted at ITDMs/IT professionals but will not overwhelm those without any technical knowledge.

Teams Calling: The Microsoft Voice Story

In this session we will briefly go over how we've gone from OCS – to Lync – to Skype for Business and now Teams for Voice.  We will discuss how Phone System offers all the functionalities you would expect from an Enterprise grade PBX while making it easy for partners to complement customer’s requirements like recording and complex Call Center functionalities and other advanced requirements. 

We will also confirm high level that customers can either use Microsoft's Calling Plans or use Direct Routing to connect to PSTN providers and third party functionalities. 

This session is geared towards curious IT professionals looking to confirm how Teams is able to replace the existing capacity of your PBX. (BDM and ITDM/IT Professionals)
