  • So we want to help you drive innovation within your sector and that’s the crux of what this day is about, recognising the Future of Communication and Collaboration for Local Authorities means new ways of working which benefit work the workforce, the network of support bodies and the community served by all involved.As Chris outlined the need for change is vital even if its just focusing on budget constraints, let alone making sure you have the latest tools and techniques to attract today’s workforce and keep them. Innovating and finding new ways of working is essential to sustainably deliver the services Local Authorities are their to provide.So what does it take to drive innovation and change:Gartner outline 4 Main factors:Employees must be allowed and be capable of making good decisionsYou will have experts in there own field, people who really know their particular area but are often diligently working in a silo, not supporting or unsupported by similar entities servicing the same citizens. So it about empowering all areas of the Authority to harness expertise.Employees must be personally and collectively productive- Employees must be productive but again this is augmented if they are connected to those around them, not just diligently working away unaware they may be duplicating effort.3. Collaborate and communicate with other across the organisationEmployees must be able to communicate and collaborate with each other, this sounds simple enough but by what means, and is it the most effective method? Do you they have the time? As Chris outlined earlier it can take significant time effort and cost to pull individuals together and as we all get busier and have greater expectations placed upon us the opportunity to come together becomes scarce.An innovation culture is enhanced by cross organisation collaboration and by diversity of participants and their points of view.Accepting and harnessing different skills, expertise and view points generates new/better ways of working that benefit all. Rather than changes “innovations” being made in isolation which in fact can only help individuals or departments and do not consider the wider world within which they exists can be harmful to ultimately doing what any innovation is supposed to and that’s support and provide better services to the community.

  • So this is essentially the challenge to those in this room, you are here because you are in a position of responsibility to be the enabler of innovation, you are the individuals who will shape the Future of Communication and Collaboration for Local Authorities and the Community. It will be you who provides the foundations to drive innovation.Sounds simple enough?!?
  • So we have seen what it takes to drive Innovation but what has really changed in the communications we use everyday to enable us to be those innovators.Fundamentally it can be argued that actually many still work in very much the same way we always have. Yes things have got much faster…….
  • …….we use email and smart phones which now enable us to be more connected and enable the “always on generation” There will be 15 Billion networked devices by 201556% of employees spend time working outside the office¾ of employees use multiple devices BYOD is a very over used term but it is a reality, it is a driver and in truth many people use better devices in their personal lives that they use at work and so naturally want to bring them to workThis results in 100% of IT staff constantly battling to keep up with mobile demands of employees.
  • So at work the reality is most still communicate in quite a uniform way. Day to day we predominantly use email and phone, we might do a bit of voice and web conferencing but generally this has to be set up in advance.So we have email and voicemail tennis bouncing around the organisation where we often ask simple questions which we then wait for a response, which in turn may or may not even come back. And worse still some even use these means of communication to hide behind, sending an email often means the relinquishing of responsibility to get tasks done “well I sent an email about it” as though the baton of responsibility has been passed and the onus is now on someone else.
  • Slide Objective:Set context, discuss the status quo of enterprise communications, the impact consumerization has on the discussion and present the Microsoft vision for Unified Communications.Initial Build - Communications Today, Talking Points:Technology has brought us a very long way in terms of how we communicate in the business world. But as communication and collaboration technologies have evolved, they have done so independently, in parallel with one another, creating communication silos. In the meantime, the way we work is changing; business is operating at a faster pace and frequently across time zones. As a society we are more mobile, have greater access to technology outside of the workplace and have expectations to match. Today’s Information Workers are using a variety of products and services to meet all of these needs in their professional and personal lives. For most companies today, telephony and voice mail, e-mail, IM, audio conferencing, video conferencing, Web conferencing, and group communication tools all live in their own disconnected silos. Each has evolved a separate operating platform—often with proprietary third-party technology—separate clients,authentication, separate administration, and separate storage and compliance. Add to that all of the consumer oriented tools and services we are using in our daily lives - the result is an enormous headache for the end user, who has to remember separate phone numbers, account names, and passwords. Plus, these users have limited communication with each device—for example, not being able to make audio calls from their computers. Ultimately, their communication is disconnected, and their collaboration and innovation are hindered. These independent silos, which now encompass enterprise and consumer, have led to redundancies and inefficiencies for the IT administrator as well. It has become difficult and expensive to maintain them and to ensure each is in compliance with business and government regulations, is secure and manageable in the long term. Final Build - The Microsoft Unified Communications Vision, Talking Points:Microsoft® Lync® 2013 is an enterprise-ready unified communications platform. Lync connects hundreds of millions of people everywhere, on Windows 8 and other devices, as part of their everyday productivity experience. Lyncreduces complexity by putting people at the center of the communications experience. Our goal is to integrate all of the ways we contact each other in a single environment— using a single client, identity – while providing businesses with the power to choose how they provision those services—whether on their own premises, as cloud services, or in a hybrid mode.Lync provides a consistent, single client experience for presence, instant messaging, voice, video and a great meeting experience. Lync delivers an experience that is differentiated from any other Unified Communications solution in the industry with best-of-breed integration in the Office family of apps. Lync users focus less on how to use the tools and direct their energy to meeting the needs of their business. With Lync as the UC platform, IT administrators are able to modernize their operations and simplify administration with Active Directory, common data store, and a shared set of archive and compliance tools, across multiple UC components (e.g. email and instant messaging).
