Recently I attended Microsoft Open door event at Sheraton Hotel, karachi. The event is always good as it provides opportunity for get togather with IT Professional from different areas. I attended two seminars:
- Microsoft Communication Server 14: Transforming the way people communicate – by Ihsan Anabtawi
- Web Story: Microsoft Perspective – by Asli Bilgin
Both were quite informative and both presenter did good job to explain things. The first presentation Ihsan showed the power of Microsoft lync (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/lync/default.aspx) product for unified communication. He showed real demo on how to communicate with your colleague without knowing his contact information. All employees information is held at Share Point Server and Lync us that information to make you connect with him whether on cell phone,IM or company network.
In the second presentation Asli told some interesting statistics about Microsoft products for Pakistan and Turkey, which shows that Turkey is far ahead than us in Microsoft Tools/products.
