Migrating to Teams from Slack, or performing a tenant migration? Moving files into Microsoft 365 to use with Teams? Whether it’s files, chats or configuration and metadata, it’s important to know what is possible and avoid common pitfalls.

In this session, you’ll learn about the key methods you can migrate data into Teams, without the vendor spin – and what’s really possible for tenant migrations or when moving in from other tools like Slack. And you’ll hear practical, usable advice on moving file data and other configuration between tenants or from on-premises file servers. Find the middle ground that works well with SharePoint, but doesn’t annoy your users and make Teams unusable.

Once you want to use Teams also as your cloud PBX you can come into very interesting decision point while talking about the need of the license for your users. In old times almost all people had telephone by default. Nowadays this need can be already diminished by scheduled calls and using meeting platforms or by adhoc native Teams calls even between federated users.

So do all my people need to be enabled for Enterprise Voice? Do they need to be licensed with Phone System? What about receptionist transferring PSTN calls to users? Will that work? How does the Teams phone device is licensed?  What about Auto-attendant and Call Queues? When do I need to assign license to resource account and to users? Do I even need to have Direct Routing or Calling Plan for my use case? What about dialing out from meeting?

Beside answering those quite common questions I will also present real use cases and personas which we have identified during our deployments of Teams Telephony in HeidelbergCement.

July 31st 2021 is a date that is currently looming large (assuming COVID hasn’t moved this darn conference again!), on this date Skype for Business Online services as we know them will stop working. As I’m writing this session synopsis there currently isn’t a lot of information available about what this will actually mean in practice, but is a change that could have huge consequences for a number of organizations.

At the moment there are many different questions that we just can’t answer right now., such as:

What will happen if you are running SfB on-prem but with Hybrid configured?

What if you are using SfB Online but are using On Premises Call Handling to supply dial-tone to your users?

What if you have SBCs deployed running Cloud Connector Edition for voice?

In this session I will endeavour to cover in as much detail as is possible what the different paths forward may be if you are still relying to some degree on Skype for Business Online so that you can gauge your level of risk and cover how you can minimise the impact of its removal.

(If COVID has moved this conference out to September then hopefully the SfB drop-dead date has sailed past like the millennium bug and we’re all still fine)

Perhaps you have been using Teams for a little while now and things seem to have been going okay. You dipped your toes in with online meetings and perhaps a spot or two of collaboration, but wouldn’t it be nice to also get on board with making regular phone calls inside Teams? You could get rid of that old PBX that is starting to groan a little bit in the back corner of the comms room and perhaps it can’t be all that difficult right, your users got used to normal calling in Teams during all this COVID malarkey?

In this session I will cover how you can approach adding Telephony into your Teams deployment. We will look at what the choices and decision points are between Calling Plans and Direct Routing, as well as covering the different varieties of Direct Routing available. We will cover how to approach a voice migration project and what sort of things you need to consider in order to have a successful deployment and happy users…

A number of companies have been introducing MS teams to their users. But with great power comes great responsibility, and unleashing teams can become messy pretty quick.

Our objective is to use AGILE techniques to deliver a high rate of Adoption for MS teams by understanding the value put on MS Teams functionality from the business

We start by looking at MS Teams Governance V functionality and how business value are aligned.
We will specifically introduce techniques like Kono and User stories, to assess the high value items for our AGILE backlog for priority delivery
