Work at the National Science Foundation as IT Specialist. Among many other hats, I assist other users to believe that Lync is useful to to them, and which contexts this is true (mostly the Physics Division of NSF).
The mission of the Mid-Atlantic Region Skype for Business User Group (marSkypeUG) is to promote a sense of community across the Mid-Atlantic states (MD, VA, PA, DC, & DE) with like-minded communication and IT professionals, customers, subject matter experts, and interested users of unified communications (UC) technologies. Membership is open to anyone with the motivation to actively participate and contribute to the community.
Attending these events, will:
• provide participants with a greater understanding of fast-evolving UC technologies,
• equip professionals with greater knowledge on the vagaries of integrating UC with classic telephony,
• allow participants to share ideas and collaborate on business-technology decisions, and
• help community members facilitate better technology purchasing and implementation decisions.
