The Lync Call Quality Methodology (CQM) is a practical approach that applies the broad guidance we have published in the Lync Networking Guide. CQM is a data driven framework backed by SQL queries and an operational process to systematically improve and maintain call quality.

This session will go through the individual components of CQM, describe our recommended process for implementing it, show findings from using CQM and go into detail on how the SQL queries work and how you can customize them for you or your customer's needs.
Keeping track of all the various resources used by a solution is a daunting task. Azure Resource Manager enables you to group multiple resources into a single logical group.
