Day 2 - Going beyond "Teams out of the box"
9.00 - 10.30 - Session 1 - Calling with Teams (Ben Lee)
Bringing telephony capabilities to Teams can seem a daunting task, however, it does not need to be. In this session we will look at the choices available and how to approach adding telephony into your Teams environment, including Direct Routing vs Calling Plans and how Teams media flows work.
11.00 - 12.15 - Session 2 - Managing and maintaining quality for Calls and Conferences (Jason Wynn)
Microsoft provides a number of tools that can be used to help achieve and then maintain a good quality user experience for your network. Following on from Session 1 this will cover how to perform "pre-flight" checks for a site before migration and then how to monitor and trend quality so you can proactively deal with any problems.
12.15 - 13.15 - Lunch!
13.15 - 14.30 - Session 3 - Building your first Microsoft Teams Application - a guide for non-developers (Tom Morgan)
The way we work is changing. Bots are the new Apps. Data is King. Technology is evolving and you need to evolve with it. Teams has a rich platform for developers with multiple ways to bring new capabilities to your users. But what if you're not a developer and don't know where to start? Then this talk is for you! Join Tom Morgan as he navigates all the ways that Microsoft have made it easy to get started building your first Teams application, tips and tricks he has picked up over the past few years, Azure hacks to make sure you're not wasting money and more. As an example, he'll share experiences from publishing his most recent Teams App, RememberThis. If you've always wanted to write a Teams application and see your name in the App Store, this talk will fill in the gaps to going from Big Idea to Published App.
14.45 - 16.00 - Session 4 - Driving Teams Usage (Jason Wynn)
All of the work from the other sessions presented here will be in vain if users do not engage with the platform on a daily basis. It can seem straightforward to deploy the Teams client and then leave your users to it, however, to maximise the return and productivity benefits of this platform it is important to engage with your business and most importantly your users. This session will give you the tools and ideas that you need to excite your users and evolve your business with the best communication and collaboration platform on the market - Teams.
16.00 - End - Open Q&A session (All)
Open floor to raise any questions or bring some scenarios for discussion with the speakers / Organisers and other attendees. Think of this as an open consultancy slot!
