Joshua Shoemaker, VP Tech Services and Ops - Enabling Technologies | Dave Bottomley, Senior Solutions Engineer - IR
Having covered the planning and readiness phases in the first two webinars of the series, we turn our focus to the deployment and adoption phase. Now is when the rubber hits the road, so to speak. Get this wrong and the whole project can be in jeopardy, while your best made plans lay in ruin. This may seem a tad dramatic, it isn't - if you can't get your people using the new tools it is near impossible to realize ROI on a project of this scale.
Joshua Shoemaker, VP Technical Services and Operations at Enabling Technologies, will join this session to share first hand experiences on where organizations have managed this step successfully and some learning on where others have perhaps not got this right, including the implication to project timings and cost.
This will be an interactive session with questions throughout and a dedicated Q&A at the conclusion of the presentation. If you are managing, deploying or just thinking about Microsoft Teams, you do not want to miss this webinar.

When Microsoft Teams was announced in March 2017, it left organizations grappling with the challenge of how they might integrate Microsoft's new collaboration tool in to their environment. This was accelerated when later that year, Microsoft advised Skype for Business would eventually be replaced by Teams.
Many organizations were left with fundamental questions on how to manage their unified communications and collaboration environment moving forward. What to move from on-premises and when? How to ensure the network can manage the transition? What investment was required? What measures to put in place to ensure adoption of the new technology?
To assist organizations deploying or considering Microsoft Teams we have developed a three part webinar series, to tell the story of one organizations journey to adopting Teams in their environment.
Part one will take an in-depth look at the planning phase of the project:
