Here is one of the major projects that Marathon has recently conducted.


Nonprofit Organisation / Independent Global Charitable Foundation - Project: Skype for Business - Migration from Office 365 to On-Premise

This organisation had been trailing Skype for Business Online and found it didn't offer the granular control they required. In addition they were looking to take advantage of the Enterprise Voice features within Skype for Business in the future.

The solution for 850 users needed to provide high availability whilst allowing for secure external access and federation . Skype for Business was installed using an Enterprise Front End Pool for user services, a Director Pool for additional security & an Edge Pool to provide external access and federation. User & Conferencing polices were then configured to meet the needs of the organization, finally after testing the environment users were moved from Office 365 to the on premise installation and the new polices applied.

Technologies used: Windows Server, Active Directory, Office 365, SQL Server, Skype for Business, Office Web Apps Server.

Roles: Design, Technical Consultant, Implementation, Support, User Training and Handover.
