This session demonstrates how a new class of scenarios and user experiences can be enabled by re-imagining solutions using cloud-based technology and Apps for Office. Learn how to make cloud-based line-of-business applications which include Apps for Office in Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook, and also how to supplement them with Office 365 SharePoint web sites, Windows Phone 8 apps, notifications, and Azure Web Sites and SQL Databases. See an extremely polished end-to-end demo scenario unfold, related to idea generation, qualification, selection, development, and evaluation. Learn how all the components in the demo are built, what patterns are used to implement them, and have a lot of fun along the way. This session also has a little bit of March Madness flavor baked into it which will provide an entertaining and enlightening experience.
This demo intensive session will focus on the use of Microsoft Azure services to host a back end system for real- time telemetry processing in a 3D racing game. The use of asynchronous queues, worker roles, storage services and websites will be explained. Techniques for real-time data stream processing, data archiving and report generation will be discussed and demonstrated. During the session attendees will have the option to play the game, and see the lap and telemetry data being processed in real time. The session will provide an insight into leveraging the power of cloud-based platforms for high scale telemetry data processing scenarios. The techniques demonstrated will be applicable to many scenarios, from multi-player gaming to device telemetry and the internet of things.
UCB is a patient-centric biopharma leader, focusing on severe diseases in Immunology and the Central Nervous System. The company employs in the region of 9000 employees and operates in approximately 40 countries. UCB achieved revenues of $3.46 billion in 2012.
The main driver to implement Lync in the early part of 2011 was first started by the need for a video conferencing solution. This was further accelerated by the "Smarter Ways" efficiency program – which included effective collaboration within the scope. The Lync conferencing services alone helped UCB realize savings of $1.2M compared to the legacy conferencing solutions that were previously in place. The choice of Lync has also allowed full integration of the Unified Contact Centre systems at UCB.
During this session, UCB will cover their drivers for unified communication, the Lync journey (strategy with scope expansion and timeline), communication & change management activities and finally some KPI's.
