And I'm not just talking about IT departments implementing a technology; I mean actually getting end users to embrace that technology. At the Microsoft Lync Conference last week in San Diego, one of the big messages was how Lync 2013 was intended to be "people-centric," with much of the focus in keynotes and sessions on the new and enhanced user features for unified communications (UC). It seems Microsoft, or at least the Lync team, has end-user adoption in its sites.</p><p>"Ultimately, it's all about the changing human interaction, the way people communicate, and really being able to provide an environment that makes them comfortable," said Giovanni Mezgec, general manager for Lync product marketing. Mezgec knows that the "bits and bytes" are important for IT pros, but it's equally important to remember the user experience. "They don't want to be constricted. They want to have the flexibility of looking at the information that they want. Bringing that experience in an environment that makes them feel like a natural extension of what they do already is so important to really foster adoption."</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog">Exchange and Outlook Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog-8/lync-2013/lync-2013-human-element-online-meetings-145324" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog-8/lync-2013/lync-2013-human-element-online-meetings-145324#comments Lync Lync 2013 Lync 2013 Messaging Microsoft Lync Conference Microsoft Lync Server Office Unified Communications Unified Communications (UC) Exchange and Outlook Blog Thu, 28 Feb 2013 18:11:00 +0000 61182 at http://windowsitpro.com Office 365 for Business: What to Expect for 2013 http://windowsitpro.com/blog/office-365-business-what-expect-2013 <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>Microsoft continues to plow forward with its cloud strategy and the move to become a devices and services company rather than a simple purveyor of software.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog">Exchange and Outlook Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/office-365-business-what-expect-2013" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/office-365-business-what-expect-2013#comments Cloud Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Lync Office 365 SharePoint 2013 Public Cloud SharePoint Cloud Computing cloud computing Exchange 2013 Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Hosted services Lync 2013 Lync 2013 Messaging Microsoft Exchange Server Microsoft Office 365 Office Office 365 Public Cloud Public Folders SharePoint SharePoint 2013 SharePoint 2013 Software as a Service (SaaS) Software as a Service (SaaS) Exchange and Outlook Blog Thu, 07 Feb 2013 21:26:00 +0000 57078 at http://windowsitpro.com IceWarp Provides All-In-One Communications Infrastructure http://windowsitpro.com/blog/icewarp-provides-all-one-communications-infrastructure <div class="node-body blog-body"><img alt="" src="http://www.windowsitpro.com/content/content/145127/IceWarp_logo_200.jpg" style="float: right; margin: 5px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /><p>For many companies, 2013 is likely to be a year of system upgrades, or at least investigating the new versions of software as they become available.

I'm looking around at what the experts are saying, and the problems encountered by those wanting to implement Exchange 2013, and I'm not seeing a ton of love. Of course, keep in mind that Microsoft hasn't released the necessary updates for Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2007 to allow for coexistence with Exchange 2013, so the only actual implementations should be greenfield deployments or lab environments, which means a fairly limited distribution. Nonetheless, it seems to me that Exchange 2013 is getting a bit of an image problem.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog">Exchange and Outlook Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/exchange-2013-has-image-problem" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/exchange-2013-has-image-problem#comments Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Security Authentication Exchange 2013 Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Server problems load balancing Messaging Microsoft Exchange Server Security Exchange and Outlook Blog Thu, 10 Jan 2013 22:37:48 +0000 57853 at http://windowsitpro.com OWA 2013: Good Enough to Replace Outlook? http://windowsitpro.com/blog/owa-2013-good-enough-replace-outlook <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>With the release of <a href="http://www.windowsitpro.com/exchange-server-2013" target="_blank">Microsoft Exchange Server 2013</a>, it's perhaps time again to turn some attention to Outlook Web App (OWA). As usual, the Exchange team devoted some useful development time to providing enhancements to OWA 2013. The new ability for offline mail access has probably received the most attention, but other interesting changes include the dramatically simplified UI and the ability to integrate apps with OWA (which also applies to the Outlook 2013 desktop client). The question naturally arises about whether OWA is good enough to allow companies to abandon Outlook on the desktop in favor of OWA.</p> <p>First, let's examine the new features a little closer to see what benefits they bring. So, offline access. You can use OWA to read and respond to email even when you have no network connection, which could be great. However, this feature is possible only with the very latest browsers -- Internet Explorer 10, Safari 5, and Chrome 18 -- and enabling offline access is sure to require a good deal of end-user training to avoid security problems. Whether this feature is truly a boon remains to be seen, but in the short term, I suspect many organizations would rather avoid u</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog">Exchange and Outlook Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/owa-2013-good-enough-replace-outlook" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/owa-2013-good-enough-replace-outlook#comments Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Outlook Exchange 2013 Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Messaging Microsoft Exchange Server Microsoft Outlook Outlook Outlook Web Access (OWA) Outlook Web App (OWA) Public Folders Exchange and Outlook Blog Thu, 06 Dec 2012 22:25:46 +0000 41545 at http://windowsitpro.com How Exchange 2013 Gets Social for Collaboration http://windowsitpro.com/blog/how-exchange-2013-gets-social-collaboration <div class="node-body blog-body"><img alt="" src="http://www.windowsitpro.com/content/content/144425/Exchange_2013_sm.png" style="float: right; margin: 5px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /><p>One of the initial messages around the launch of <a href="http://www.windowsitpro.com/exchange-server-2013" target="_blank">Microsoft Exchange Server 2013</a> was that it would be more collaboration-friendly, or indeed, more sociable. In fact, one story around the whole of Microsoft's Wave 15 products is their increased interconnectedness -- that, and the whole extra reliance on the cloud, of course. But it's this collaboration story with Exchange 2013 I was interested to find out more about.</p> <p>According to <a href="http://technet.microsoft.com/library/jj150540(EXCHG.150)#BKMK_Share" target="_blank" title="What's New in Exchange 2013">Microsoft's website</a>, Exchange 2013 is designed "to support people and organizations as their work habits evolve from a communication focus to a collaboration focus." They also make the point that we're dealing with a "multigenerational workforce," and recognizing that point to me means also recognizing that every technology or every method of collaboration isn't going to succeed with every worker, or every age group. Exchange 2013, in fact, has a number of new or improved methods for enabling collaboration.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog">Exchange and Outlook Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/how-exchange-2013-gets-social-collaboration" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/how-exchange-2013-gets-social-collaboration#comments Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 SharePoint Administration Collaboration collaboration Exchange 2013 Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Messaging Microsoft Exchange Server modern public folders Public Folders site mailboxes Exchange and Outlook Blog Thu, 29 Nov 2012 23:13:43 +0000 41523 at http://windowsitpro.com Problems in iOS 6, Remote Control Provides a Solution http://windowsitpro.com/blog/problems-ios-6-remote-control-provides-solution <div class="node-body blog-body"><img alt="" src="http://www.windowsitpro.com/content/content/144483/apperian-fist-175.jpg" style="float: right; margin: 5px;" /><p>The Internet is rumbling with accounts of Exchange ActiveSync problems when iPhone users upgrade to iOS 6. As you should know, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) is the communication protocol for push email and calendaring -- it's the clever little bit developed for Exchange Server 2003 that Microsoft has licensed widely, which has allowed mobile devices such as iPhones to become staples in the enterprise because users can easily connect to their work email and calendars anywhere.</p> <p>Which is all great, until there's a problem.

At MEC, the Microsoft message was pretty strong around the security and compliance story for Exchange 2013, which is good news of course. But overall, what impresses me more and more is the general simplification of Exchange -- all while providing improved performance and new or enhanced functionality.</p><p>Exchange 2013's simplicity appears both in its architecture and management tools. For the architecture, the big news is that the number of server roles has been reduced from five to two. You'll have to deploy only Mailbox servers and Client Access servers; the functions of the Hub Transport and Unified Messaging servers have been rolled into one or the other of the two remaining. As for the Edge Transport, while it won't be present in Exchange Server 2013 at launch, I've heard some rumors that it might be reintroduced in some form perhaps along with service pack 1 (SP1). In the meantime, Exchange 2013 can function with Edge servers from Exchange 2010 or Exchange 2007 if you've deployed them in your environment.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/exchange-and-outlook-blog">Exchange and Outlook Blog</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/exchange-server-2013-moves-toward-simplicity" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/exchange-server-2013-moves-toward-simplicity#comments Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Windows Server Commentary Exchange Server Exchange Server 2013 Messaging News Exchange and Outlook Blog Thu, 04 Oct 2012 21:23:42 +0000 41509 at http://windowsitpro.com What I Learned at MEC: The C is for Community http://windowsitpro.com/blog/what-i-learned-mec-c-community <div class="node-body blog-body"><img alt="" height="83" width="225" src="http://www.windowsitpro.com/content/content/144367/MECsm.jpg" style="float: right; margin: 5px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /><p>This week in Orlando, Microsoft brought together a mass of Exchange Server engineers, MVPs, and admins, representing businesses of all sizes and with widely varying years of experience in the field.
