Episode 15 of the Coalface Tech podcast is now online
In this episode, Steve and I caught up with Johann Kruse
, Unified Communications guru with Microsoft Australia, to discuss the Release Candidate of Lync Server, the latest in Microsoft's UC platform.
Lync Server received a huge amount of attention at TechEd 2010, so make sure that you download the slide decks and presentations.
Unified Communications is one of those areas of technology which is rapidly changing business models. The need for office and in-house server infrastructure is diminishing, especially in smaller businesses with mobile, tech-savvy users. Solutions like BPOS take this even further, offering businesses a complete productivity and collaboration platform, which is highly-available and accessible anywhere.
Of course, the cloud is the great enabler, and we all threw our ideas out about what the cloud means to each of us (not in a group therapy sense, of course), but in drawing on our various industry experiences, and how greater bandwidth and massively scalable (yet cost-effective) online solutions have been slowly but surely changing our own business practises.
