ITSPA Teams Workshop
15th May, 2pm-5.30pm
Regus - London, Devonshire Square
9 Devonshire Square
Over the years Microsoft have been making strides to extend their Office suite to encompass voice (OCS, Skype for Business etc). They have to some extent been regarded with a degree of suspicion by the telco community who believed they were out to eat their lunch.
With Teams and Direct Connect it would appear that Microsoft are opening up their environment to SIP trunk suppliers and have a number of certified SBC vendors that should make this easy to do.
This workshop has been put together to examine whether Microsoft should be seen as a threat or an opportunity by the ITSPA community. We have a number of stakeholders coming along to provide what should be an informative / educational afternoon. Our objective is that you will go away with a better idea of what Microsoft are up to and be able to decide whether there is a play for your own company.
