ITPRO Africa Cape Town Event – 10 June 2010

We’re having our next free Cape Town based event. This time round we’ll have a particular focus on OCS integration and Windows 7.

What can OCS integrate with, well darn near anything. To prove the point Uwin’s going to demonstrate integration from two extreme’s – Asterisk and Exchange 2010. One you would to be totally supported and integrated and the other one… NOT! But wait, there’s more. You’ll see some of the best features of OCS happening AND integrating with this popular open source platform.

Windows 7 is a huge topic and as a topic is going to stay massively popular for a while. Our Windows 7 session will include at minimum:

  • Network/Firewall settings and how to make sense of them
  • Sidebar – Functions (How to make it useful for ITPro’s)
  • XP Mode even if the hardware DOESN’T support it
  • Booting from a VHD
