This session will focus on what the Microsoft modern principles are, and the steps needed to evolve a common on-premise system architecture to something that is more modern. We will discuss the tenants of modern architecture and why they are important. The speaker will also walk through changes that can be made to update a sample application to a more modern style. Cost factors will be discussed, including the manual work needed, testing, and risks of change.
In the push to retire Windows XP, application compatibility was all about "getting it over the line," particularly for those who were trying to finish up before the end of support this past April. Now, in a post-XP world, things are changing faster—are your tools, techniques, and processes able to keep up? Do you even want to? And are you able to take full advantage of your platform? Join "The App Compat Guy" for a review of the current state of the art and the secrets of customers who have been able to break the chains and become agile again.

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.
