  15. 15. Best Practices: How to Take Advantage of UCC • Anticipate organizational and vendor politics — plan how to handle it. • Clearly determine what you want and can use. Don't let vendors lead you to want what they have. • Use new capabilities as a way to justify or get users excited about upgrades. • Be careful when vendors cross lines into new areas.

  37. 37. Fortum Customer Services, situation one year ago Communication system was based on Fortum PBX fixed telephone exchange and contact centre application with email add-on Call recording was made in separate system All PBX and communication system servers were located in Fortum’s own server room Our present communication and call recording systems were not technically supported anymore and didn’t have enough licenses and channels for current operations need Maintenance and upgrade of servers was expensive Our need was to replace current communication and call recording functionalities with more cost-effective, user-friendly and more flexible solution
  38. 38. Fortum Customer Services, what we wanted More cost-effective, user-friendly and flexible multichannel communication system Integrated call recording functionalities Turnkey solution, no server or PBX upfront investments or installations Multi-location support Open interfaces which increase possibilities to system integrations – for example Workforce Management (Teleopti) or Voice Recognition solutions - and process automations Reliable vendor Better support for continuously changing business requirements
  39. 39. Fortum Customer Services Why did we choose CaaS and SAP BCM? The CaaS vendor is responsible for all hardware and software management and offers guaranteed Quality of Service CaaS allows businesses to selectively deploy communications devices and modes on a pay-as-you-go, as-needed basis This approach eliminates the large capital investment and ongoing overhead for a system whose capacity may often exceed or fall short of current demand CaaS offers flexibility and expandability allowing for the addition of devices, modes or coverage on demand There is no risk of the system becoming obsolete and requiring periodic major upgrades or replacement

  44. 44. Snabbare kommunikation och effektivare samarbete med hjälp av IT • Snabbfakta • Växjö Kommun • IT-enheten • Ett IT • Vägen framåt i Växjö Kommun • Strategi • Utmaningar • Förändringar • Personen och dess närvaro i centrum • Nästa steg för OCS Därför valde Växjö Kommun en framtidssäker UC- lösning från Microsoft, innehållande allt • Vad vinner vi på detta? från Epost till Telefoni
  45. 45. Snabb fakta Växjö Kommun I slutet av vikingatiden på 1000-talet kom, enligt legenden den engelske missionären Sigfrid som den förste kristne budbäraren till hednalandet Sverige och Växjö. Han byggde stadens första kyrka som på 1170-talet ersattes av en stenkyrka, ursprunget till dagens domkyrka. 1342 fick Växjö sina stadsrättigheter av kung Magnus Eriksson. År 1542 gjorde bönderna i Småland, under ledning av Nils Dacke, uppror mot Gustav Vasas skattepålagor. Upproret kom att kallas Dackefejden. Växjö har brunnit ett flertal gånger men alltid byggts upp igen. Staden har lång tradition som skolstad, residensstad och stiftsstad. Fram till början av 1990-talet var Växjö även garnisonsstad. Idag är Växjö en expansiv stad med över 82 000 invånare, ett varierat näringsliv och ett växande universitet.
  46. 46. Snabb fakta IT-enheten (1 av 2) Vad är vår vision? Ett IT inom Växjö Kommun och koncernen ska bidra till en bättre IT-vardag för alla anställda, elever och kunder till kommunen och dess bolag. Vi arbetar enligt visionen för Ett IT med samverkan inom koncernen och regionen och därmed sätter vi kunden i centrum. Vad gör vi? • IT-enheten ansvarar för samordningen av kommunens IT-verksamhet och att ta fram de standards som ska användas för kommunens IT-plattform. • Sköta inköp och drift åt Växjö kommuns verksamhet gällande datorer, servrar, datalagring etc. för det administrativa nätet, elev nätet, publika nätet och näten hos bolagen. – 250+ servrar – 6500+ datorer (varav ca 250 Mac) – 22000+ användare
  47. 47. Snabb fakta IT-enheten (2 av 2) Vad gör vi? • Ansvara för drift, utbyggnad och underhåll av datakommunikation på Växjö kommuns datanät. – 387 fysiska platser med datakommunikation – Telefonväxel • Systemdrift och applikationssupport – IT-system (AD, SCCM, ISA, SAN, Vmware mm) – Gemensamma system (E-post, antivirus mm) – Verksamhetssystem ( Agresso, Personec, LEX mm) – Applikationshantering – Licenshantering • Arbeta med strategifrågor, utveckling, säkerhet, beslutstöd och projektledning mm Hur många är vi? • Vi är idag ca 42 anställda och ca 10 konsulter som sköter drift och utveckling av IT åt Växjö Kommun (10 st förvaltningar och 7 st bolag).
  48. 48. Ett IT – Varför gjorde vi det? Ett IT kom till i juni/juli-2008 efter det att vi på IT fått det enkla, men ack så tydliga, uppdraget att som kommunchefen Ove Dahl uttryckte det: - Se till att hela Växjö Kommun får en lösning för epost - Koncerngemensamt intranät behöver vi också ha... Från dessa tydliga krav kom vi ganska snart på att det inte räckte med att göra några små leveranser för att ordna detta. Det fanns allt för många kataloger och epost-lösningar. Bristen på en enda gemensam katalog försvårade möjligheten till gemensamt intranät. Flera IT- organisationer och flera IT-plattformar gjorde inte det lättare. Vi behövde helt enkelt renovera IT i hela Växjö Kommun. Några veckor senare så stod det klart att renoveringen inte skulle bli lite ny färg på karossen, utan det var mer frågan om en "extreme IT make over" som behövdes. Det ledde fram till idéer om en ny ekonomisk modell, en serviceportal, en IT-organisation, en IT-plattform och en tydlig satsning på tjänster och avtal. Så kom Ett IT till och på den vägen är det.. Resan är startad. Projektet Ett IT är numera avslutat sedan 2010-01-15, men det har uppstått ett nytt Ett IT. Länge leve Ett IT!
  49. 49. Ett IT, men var har vi gjort mer då? Epost och OCS. Under maj 2009 satte vi upp vår Exchange 2010 genom att aktivt delta i TAP-projektet. Under sommaren 2009 satte vi upp OCSR2 primärt för närvaro, snabb- meddelande och webbmöten. Telefoni. Under 2008 fram till nyligen har lokala telefonilösningar hos våra bolag avvecklats och användarna integrerats i den centrala telefoni-lösningen med växel från Alcatel och hänvisningssystem från Visionsutveckling (kopplat till Exchange kalendern). Nytt nät. Vi håller på med ett stort projekt som ska förnya hela vår nät och kommunikationsplattform. IT-plattform 2010. Redan under Ett IT gjorde vi vissa förbättringar av den centrala IT- plattformen med avsikt på att kunna avveckla de mindre IT-plattformarna. Nu genomför vi resten ihop med Microsoft och konceptet MSKD 4.0. Detta projekt kommer verkligen skapa en enda IT-plattform där individens/rollens rättigheter styr allt. Samarbetsplattform. Vi hade Sharepoint 2007 sedan tidigare för en applikation samt projektrum (främst använt av IT).
  50. 50. Vägen framåt i Växjö Kommun Epost har sedan länge, jämsides med telefoni och tradionella fil mappar, varit det dominerande verktyget för kommunikation och samarbete inom Växjö Kommun. De senaste åren har ny funktionalitet som t.ex snabbmeddelanden, delade kalendrar och projektrum dykt upp och gjort det enklare, snabbare och effektivare att samarbeta. Delar av detta finns redan hos vissa på Växjö Kommun, men det är inte heltäckande eller integrerat. Samtidigt finns det ett behov att ha en mer integrerad kommunikation och samarbetsplattform. Telefoni kan t.ex inte leva sitt eget liv. Låt oss beskriva vägen framåt:
  51. 51. Strategi för intern information och verktyg för kommunikation Tänk om: All information som når en anställd är relevant för honom eller henne? All nödvändig teknik vore på plats för effektiv kommunikation? Intern information vore ett naturligt sätt att stödja verksamheten? Då skulle: Intern information och effektiva verktyg starkt bidra till att de anställda på Växjö Kommun kan utföra sitt arbete på ett sätt så att det bidrar till högre service och kvalitet för Växjös medborgare och kunder.
  52. 52. Utmaningar Att kommunicera och samarbeta kan vara en utmaning... Vem kan delta i mötet nästa vecka? Är Lisa på kontoret idag och vilket telefonnummer har hon? Var är de senaste mötesanteckningarna? Jag har inte tid att resa till Stockholm, men jag behöver vara med... Per arbetar hemma. Hur håller vi honom informerad? Jag använder Messenger hemma, men inte på jobbet. Vem är ansvarig för uppgiften ”Kick-off ”? Hur når jag snabbt 20 olika medarbetare som sitter geografiskt åtskilda?
  53. 53. Förändringar Idag Varje uppgift utförs enskilt utan naturliga kopplingar till olika funktioner. Möten Fil Min Epost Möten Mappar Kalender Förändra vårt sätt att Delade Epost kommunicera Kalendrar Projektrum Fil mappar Min kalender Imorgon Informera, använda och dela med sig utan gränser genom att använda en integrerad person centrerad kommunikation och samarbetsplattform. Du är i förarsätet!
  54. 54. Personen och Org. övergripande Externa leverantörer dess närvaro Andra företag i centrum Projekt rum Delade mappar Communities Epost Snabbmeddelande Telefon Webb möte Våra team Våra delade kalendar Våra delade dokument Min kalender Mina uppgifter Min närvaro
  55. 55. Vad har vi nu och vad gör vi framåt? För två år sedan hade 5 olika epost-lösningar i Växjö Kommun (3 st Exchange, 1 st Lotus Notes och 1 st First Class). Nu har vi en Exchange2010 integrerad med Live@edu (molnet) för eleverna i grundskolan tom högstadiet. Eleverna på gymnasiet är kvar i First Class. Inom kort ska vi börja nyttja OCS 14 för telefonifunktioner. Frågan är hur snabbt OCS14 kommer ta över telefonianvändare från vår nuvarande Alcatel-växel? Ett nytt intranät som fungerar som ett arbetsredskap baserat på Sharepoint 2010 samt Office 2010 är också på gång.
  56. 56. Nästa steg för OCS Under hösten 2009 hade vi planer på att integrera vår OCSR2 med vår Alcatel-växel. Men då vi fick frågan från Microsoft om att vara med i TAP-projektet för nästa generation (OCS14) så beslöt vi att avvakta med den integrationen. Genom det nya TAP-projektet för OCS14 som inleddes under våren 2010, så kommer vi att stegvis att ansluta ett antal telefonianknytningar till den nya OCS14-plattformen och därmed flytta dessa från dagens Alcatel. Just nu är i vi i lab-fas med OCS14. Efter sommaren är det dags att genomföra steg-1, dvs sätta upp OCS14 i produktion för all normal CS-funktionalitet samt 50 telefonianvändare. Detta parellellt med OCSR2. Sedan kommer vi stegvis utöka med fler telefonianvändare fram tom releasen i höst/vinter 2010 och avveckla OCSR2
  57. 57. Vad vinner vi på detta? Det sägs i olika utredningar att man kan tjäna 5-30 minuter per användare och dag med en UC-lösning. Tid, pengar och miljö är möjliga att spara på med UC. Exchange 2010: Den nya epost-lösningen har redan genom det nya webbgränssnittet (OWA) skapat vinster tidsmässigt för användarma. Det krävs mindre tid av IT att drifta epost-lösningen, lagringen är billig och ingen backup behövs! Den nya Outlook 2010 kommer göra alla användare än mer nöjda och effektiva. OCS14: Genom att få ut användandet av närvaro, snabbmeddelande, webbmöten, telefonifunktionerna i Växjö Kommuns verksamhet kommer vi spara mycket tid och göra miljön en tjänst genom minskat resande. Telefoni: Enligt de beräkningar vi har gjort kommer vi sänka enbart telefonikostnaderna med minst 50% (främst specialiserad hårdvara, serviceavtal på växel och licenser). Sharepoint 2010: Genom att få en modern samarbetsplattform så kommer vi bli mer effektiva inom/utom Växjö Kommun. Enklare att hitta information och att söka efter den. Office 2010/Windows7: En ny klientplattform med Windows7 i botten kommer ge användarna bättre och moderna verktyg och ett säkrare, effektivare sätt att arbeta.
  58. 58. Vi syns imorgon i vår nya kommunikation och samarbetsplattform! Per Andersson, IT-chef / Koncernstrateg IT, Växjö Kommun Epost: Mobil: 0703-417326

  142. 142. Unified  Communications  What to do? 01 Matthew Finnie CTO
  143. 143. The road to blue sky? 2
  144. 144. Unified  Communications 2010  • Unified communications (UC) is the integration of real‐time  communication services such as instant messaging (chat),  presence information, Telephony (including IP telephony), video  conferencing, call control and speech recognition with non real‐ time communication services such as unified messaging (integrated voicemail, e‐mail, SMS and fax). UC is not a single  product, but a set of products that provides a consistent unified  user interface and user experience across multiple devices and  media types.[1] * Courtesy of Wikipedia 
  145. 145. Unified Communications with Interoute One the  communication network  • A multi technology and access  agnostic communication  platform for enterprise  IPPBX e.g. communication. Cisco PSTN • It binds all legacy and new  TDM PBX Interoute VVN Secure Network Interface e.g. Avaya Customer communication methods  One Specific Platform together through an open  Customers or Interoute standards carrier platform  Partition SIP • PBX vendor and access type   End Mobile agnostic Point • IP or TDM  Microsoft OCS • Microsoft OCS R.2.0  compliant  Interoute Network Interoute Network • Onnet Calling 
  146. 146. Core motivations  Cost:  • Cost of calls; All office to office calls are zero rated regards of  geography  • Flexibility in how you route calls and re route calls  • Common communication in any location on any device  Productivity: • Lower TCO through common administration of all communication  services  • Integration of directory services centralised administration of  corporate communications via enterprise directory services  • Desktop integration – call control and management as part of the  desktop build • Users can optimise communication around devices not get forced  down a inappropriate technology paths 5
  147. 147. How to get started – current choices? Or 6
  148. 148. Making the choice – challenges  • IUCN (International Union for  Conservation of Nature), they  headquartered in Geneva  plan to roll out Microsoft OCS  and Exchange 07 across their  organisation with a view to  ultimately replace their  PBX.  • IUCN wanted to be able to  control the migration  themselves • They didn’t want the big  bang as they understand OCS  is a “new” technology so the  effects are “unknown” 
  149. 149. Integrate – Separate ‐ Combine – Migrate  • IUCN had PBX’s in every office  • Rather than rip out the PBX  Interoute Hub Management and swing over to OCS “over a  Remote Portal Customer weekend” they wanted a  site 3 controlled roll out of the new  Internet Worldwide technology Fixed Line and • Interoute took over the  Mobile calls existing numbers and  SIP connected the PBX to Interoute  Active Medi ation Trunking Directory One  Serve r OCS • IUCN connected their OCS  Main customer site 1 Server mediation server to Interoute  via our Microsoft Certified SIP  trunk  • On a department by  Customer site 2 department basis they  forwarded the numbers until  they were satisfied the PBX  was no longer needed
  150. 150. Conclusion • Unified Communications is not blue sky and not simply an aspiration - but it does challenge traditional approaches to buying building and creating services • Find an approach that ticks the core motivations and allows you to achieve your goals • Interoute has an approach that allows YOU to CONTROL the migration and the development of your roll out without sacrificing service
