Vorsite started a meetup this year geared towards addressing the practical applications of cloud technology and its future in business. With beer.
The beer part is important, because free beer is always a good reason to come to a tech event.
Now, we don’t normally write posts about our events, but we are extremely thrilled to announce that Walt Perry will be joining our meetup at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub on August 10th, 2011. As a 14-year veteran of Microsoft and he is our go-to guy when it comes to technology. Having held many positions from writing test code to working directly with OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), Walt has a unique perspective on cloud technology.
Don’t miss out on the chance to meet with Walt Perry directly and get a first hand experience of Office 365 on a slate.

Microsoft Lync officially launched today at 8:00am PST.
Microsoft Lync is enterprise communications software that connects employees – think of an amazing combination of video, audio, desktop sharing, instant messenger, and VOIP telephone – all deeply integrated with Microsoft Office products.
“You can do some pretty amazing things with Microsoft Lync 2010, such as switching a call from your computer to your mobile phone, recording an online meeting, or even conducting a conference call while in-flight,” says Microsoft’s Lync website.
Commercially available cloud service from Vorsite leverages the power of Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Suite and provides users with email enabled information management.
Today’s ever-changing marketplace requires organizations to increase efficiencies and react swiftly to opportunities and challenges. Many companies are held back by their reliance on manual processes to store and share information, resulting in lost productivity and delayed results. A trusted application that allows information flow and real-time collaboration with co-workers and decision-makers is the most sought after solution in business today.
The Evolution of Information Storage
vorApps for SharePoint Online delivers an email enabled information management solution leveraging the power of Microsoft SharePoint Online. Through simple automation, knowledge can be captured, searched, and accessed through SharePoint. Instantly your workers create an alternate secure location to shared inboxes. Whether team members are in the next room or on the next continent, the powerful combination of automation and storage drives business efficiencies and builds a more agile organization.
Information Interaction at your Fingertips
vorApps makes everyday tasks easy and efficient. Public folders have been around a long time and employees are used to interacting with them. Imagine storing your communications in a public folder experience directly from your e-mail solution. Imagine sending a fax directly to SharePoint instead of information going directly to your desktop or lost in a shared inbox. Give your team members the freedom to focus on strategy and core tactics to keep your business evolving in a hard economy.
vorApps for SharePoint Online features the ability to store incoming and outgoing emails from familiar SharePoint lists and document libraries. This means when a team member receives or sends an email it is instantly stored within SharePoint and securely accessed by anyone on the team. The experience will provide your team members with streamlined processes, which ensures document security and promotes collaboration.
