Session notes from SharePoint Conference 2009

  • "Enhanced presence" goes beyond just availability. It encompasses location, skills, capabilities, and other attributes that help people and applications find the right person at the right time.
  • Microsoft is not sharing anything about Office Communicator Server 14 yet.
  • The contact card feature is a summary of a person's info. It appears when you hover over a presence enabled name. It is available throughput Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. However, it is dependent on OCS.
  • From Microsoft Office Communicator (MOC), you can launch an HD video chat. (Cool, but I wonder how much bandwidth that uses.)
  • Virtually any UCC functionality available in MOC, is available through an API for developer to embed communication capabilities into business applications (Communication-Enabled Business Processes - CEBP).
  • Exchange 2010 voice mail is auto-transcribed into email message. Not perfect, but you get the gist.
  • OCS is nicely integrated into Outlook. One click to join a meeting from the invitation.
