Sorry about the lack of post last week. Holiday traveling and all.
Lync Server 2010 officially ships today! In the coming weeks (and months), many organizations will install the new communications platform. They could migrate over from OCS 2007 RS, switch from a PBX, or start out fresh.
A lot of people will need help along the way.
Microsoft has released documentation already. More is definitely on the way, as well as guides and tips from various tech experts & bloggers like myself. My contribution will be a series of blog posts here describing the process of installation – the “Path to Lync Server.”
I'll divide this “path” into 10 steps. 1 post per step. Unless we encounter a serious problem during/after installation, expect one post per week.
Each post will discuss a stage of Lync 2010 preparation, installation or configuration. Along the way I'll:
- Point out factors you should consider
- Document our own experiences with adopting Lync Server
- Point to Microsoft and third-party references you can use in each Step
- Recommend courses of action to take
If you want to repost or link to any “Path to Lync Server” posts, go right ahead. Just make sure credit and a link are included, please.
Next week, we'll start with Step 1: Clarify Your Communication Needs First. Stay tuned!
