1 May 2007 : Momentum Webcast: Unified Communications Featuring Exchange Server 2007 (Level 100)

Businesses do not garner insight or make decisions. Businesses do not close deals, invent new products, or find new efficiencies. People do. In other words, companies excel when they empower their people to drive the business forward. Microsoft is looking to help people communicate and collaborate with their co-workers, partners, and customers more effectively, setting up the environment for what we call a people-ready business. The Microsoft vision for Unified Communications, which includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, is consistent with this concept and is about unifying disparate communications. Attend this session to learn about Exchange Server 2007 and its role within the Unified Communications suite.
