Skype for Business Online Academy December – Register Now!


 

The highly anticipated release of the Office 365 E5 suite debuts tomorrow, December 1st.  If you have not been following E5 or the new services being launched in Skype for Business please read today’s Office Blog Post, Office 365 brings significant new value to business customers worldwide by Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice-president for Microsoft Office.  Kirk first highlights the significant improvement in capability the new services bring to Skype for Business, then hits on the security and analytics enhancements in the suite.

So tomorrow is a big day for Microsoft and our partners, but the question of significance is are you ready to capitalize on it?  Over the last several months some of the most common questions I have received from partners are around E5 and are mostly related to the new Skype for Business services.
