Conducting business today is dependent on
connecting people to the information they need
to do their jobs and the people they need to
collaborate with. Unified communications offers
organizations a single interface for business
communications, eliminating the need for
separate phone, email, video, conferencing,
instant messaging and voicemail systems. In this
workshop, Tim Weber and Bill Palmer of ADNET
Technologies will showed a day in the life of a
knowledge worker using Unified Communications
in an integrated environment. This is a highly
dynamic presentation with minimal slide content
and a full hour of demonstration showing the
capabilities of this powerful technology.

      “Office Communications Server offered all of the features we needed out-of-the-box without requiring additional licenses. That, plus the interoperability with Office 2007 and Office SharePoint Server and the ability to click to dial from these other applications, was what sold us on Microsoft.”
      Kevin Rice
      Global Network Architect | A. T. Kearney
      “We were spending more than a million dollars a month in our conference bridging. We are not spending anywhere near that today and expect to be saving across the board with the unified communications suite in the neighborhood of nine to ten million dollars per year, just in our enterprise costs.”
