  4. 4. Planning Your Skype for Business Voice Solution
  5. 5. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ All-in-the-cloud, on-premises, or hybrid? • Do you want (or are required) to retain functionality provided by your on-premises deployment? • Do you need features that are currently available only with your on- premises voice solution? • How do you best provide Private Branch Exchange (PBX) functionality, access to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN)? • Do you need to provide conferencing capabilities for all users in your organization? • What your plan is for moving people to the cloud? All of these depend on your company’s current and future needs!
  6. 6. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ What is the best solution? The first steps on deciding what solution will provide the “best fit” can be made easier by answering a few simple questions: • Do I have an existing on-premises Skype for Business Server deployment? • Are my users today “homed” in Skype for Business on-premises, in the cloud on Skype for Business Online, or both? • Do I want to move my on-premises users to the cloud? • Is Microsoft’s PSTN Calling service available in my region? • Do I want to keep my current telephony carrier? • Do I need to keep my current telephony carrier because of an existing contract? • Do I have an existing on-premises legacy PBX that I want or need to keep? • Does my current legacy PBX offer unique features that are critical to my business? • Do any / all of my users require features not currently offered in Cloud PBX?
  7. 7. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ Where do IT responsibilities sit? Whether you consider on-premises only, cloud-only, or a mixture of both through a hybrid deployment of Skype for Business (all of which we will cover in this series), there are five core responsibilities that you as the organization’s IT will take ownership for: 1. Networking and connectivity – Ensure network capacity and availability through firewalls, proxy servers, gateways, and across WAN links by performing a network assessment (or by contracting with a partner to do the assessment).
  8. 8. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ Where do IT responsibilities sit? Whether you consider on-premises only, cloud-only, or a mixture of both through a hybrid deployment of Skype for Business (all of which we will cover in this series), there are five core responsibilities that you as the organization’s IT will take ownership for: 2. Data governance & rights management – Classify your sensitive data and ensure it is protected and monitored wherever it is stored and while it is in transit.
  9. 9. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ Where do IT responsibilities sit?

Client endpoints – Establish, measure, and enforce modern security standards on devices that are used to access your data and assets.
  10. 10. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ Where do IT responsibilities sit? Whether you consider on-premises only, cloud-only, or a mixture of both through a hybrid deployment of Skype for Business (all of which we will cover in this series), there are five core responsibilities that you as the organization’s IT will take ownership for: 4. Account & access management – Establish a profile for “normal” account activity and alert on unusual activity.
  11. 11. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ Where do IT responsibilities sit?

Identity - Use credentials secured by hardware or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for all identities.
  12. 12. Real Microsoft expertise. Real business value.™ Where do SHARED responsibilities sit? • With a Cloud solution, wither full or hybrid, understanding where exclusive and shared ownership falls goes hand in hand with understanding the responsibilities that IT must undertake in managing and maintaining a voice solution
