VOSS works with Microsoft’s Skype Operations Framework

Developed by Microsoft, the Skype Operations Framework is a comprehensive guide to successfully deploy Skype for Business services in the cloud. Following a proven methodology, it equips organizations with the right assets and tools to ensure a successful and cost-effective deployment.

Plan

In the Plan phase, organizations establish business and  technical requirements, assessing their readiness to deploy Skype for Business Online.

Current architecture and future design of the solution are mapped, and a migration plan is defined. Customers make key considerations including how best to rollout to sites and users, how to align features and user personas, how current functionality will translate to the cloud, and more.

During this phase, VOSS automates the mapping of your existing solution, or prepares pre-tested design and automation templates to deploy your greenfield solution. Data is cleaned, normalized, and loaded, using VOSS MiGR8-2-UC.

Deliver

The Deliver phase is made up of four stages: Deploy, Enable, Adopt, and Enhance. In order to be successful with this phase, a typical organization must manage the complexity inherent in the phase itself: Carrying out a staggered rollout, prioritizing and solving support issues, and often, simultaneously managing disparate legacy UC or PBX systems. All, while expected to drive end user adoption, service consumption, and business outcomes. With the unique solutions from VOSS, customers can leverage tools and automation to reduce the burden on the organization.

In this phase, VOSS will migrate users and services with speed and accuracy using MiGR8-2-UC, drastically minimizing hands-on work. VOSS-4-UC is deployed, and user are provisioned with zero-touch and minimal disruption.

Operate

During the Operate phase, organizations should be monitoring their deployment, identifying areas of improvement, and executing remediation tasks. The four stages of this phase underscore the necessity for ongoing, hands-on management of your UC deployment. If you add in the complexity of multiple sites and hybrid environments, your organization’s UC deployment can quickly become challenging and costly to manage.

Designed specifically to make this phase easier and less expensive to manage, VOSS-4-UC simplifies and automates day-to-day activities like MACDs. VOSS Assurance measures service quality to easily identify and remediate issues. VOSS Analytics enables you to monitor trends and increase user adoption. VOSS tools simplify operation through a single pane of glass.
