We had a great turnout in the data collection. We want to thank all of you for helping distributing the survey to your end users or/and taking the time to provide your valuable feedback. We just can't wait to share what we have learned from you.
We are glad that we heard from a great representative pool of frequent online conferencing users. 55.4% of respondents use conferencing tools (e.g., Microsoft LiveMeeting, NetMeeting, WebEx, etc.) for communicationat least once a week. The tools are primarily used for presentation and collaboration, which provides us insights that OWA + LiveMeeting integration should continue to provide robust user experience around these 2 activities.
We were also surprised to learn that a significant percentage of the respondents have had experience collaborating with people in different time zones and globally. 80% of respondents have used it to work with people in different time zones, and 65% have used it to work with people in different countries. This makes us aware that OWA + LiveMeeting integration should support good time zone solutions and be sensitive to cultural/language differences.
