Making a strategic decision: what’s at the core of your Modern Workplace?

The world of IT is changing. In the last 5 years, we have witnessed the long-anticipated shift on how IT services are provided to an organisation. Software as A Service (SaaS) delivery of traditionally on-premises capabilities such as office productivity suites, email, telephony and conferencing services are no longer the exception to the rule, but rather the default approach. Cloud fit is the term I use to describe this trend.

Modern Video Conferencing from an Old Guy's Perspective

I hold a senior position at Insync. No-one’s older than me. And I break things a lot. Even my position (Old Guy Who Breaks Things) defies contraction to a snappy IT acronym. I like to think (but choose not to ask) that my employers took me on in an enlightened attempt to reach out to that marginalised community, the Users. They’re always breaking things, being slow to learn and even slower to change. It takes an old person to empathise fully with that. I’ve been in post for nearly two years now, and my youngers and betters think it’s high time they saw a return. 

So I have agreed to publish some of my findings. This week: buttons.

Introducing the Polycom Trio 8500 Conference Phone

Towards the end of 2015, it was with great joy that the world welcomed the Polycom Trio 8800 conference room device into being. Prior to this, the conference phone of choice for Lync/Skype for Business deployments was the Polycom CX3000: a somewhat ageing platform that was still running Lync Phone Edition software, which Microsoft is no longer actively developing. Under the hood, the new Trio was running a version of Polycom UCS software, which also supports Polycom's range of Lync/Skype for Business certified VVX handsets. We now had a conference room device that no longer relied on Microsoft's Phone Edition software.

Polycom RealConnect for Office 365: Why it’s an even bigger deal

In a previous blog, I discussed the added benefit of PSTN Conferencing capabilities when used in conjunction with Skype for Business Online. Meeting participants could continue to join from their Skype for Business client or a web browser, but now they could also choose to join via phone: very much still an important use case. In addition to this, Microsoft have made available dozens of PSTN access numbers across the globe that your meeting participants can dial and participate in your Skype for Business Online meeting – very handy.
