My name is Eric Marsi and I am a Microsoft MVP and Systems Engineer – Calling, Meetings, & Devices at Cloud Revolution. I work directly with customers on-premises and cloud-based deployments to bring new meeting experiences to all. I bring over 7 years of experience from the different IT industry areas and can communicate effectively with network engineers, systems engineers, end users, and business leaders.
Unified Communications (UC) is my primary field of expertise. In 2016, I was introduced to the Microsoft UC platform. Since then, I have developed a passion for Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business as these products are able to transform the way that a organization collaborates. When a deployment is complete, there is a sense of accomplishment that cannot be explained.
I also occasionally post on my blog UCIT.Blog regarding updates to the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, give product reviews, create how-to guides, and more! The primary purpose of this blog it to give back to the community that has helped me get to where I am at now in my career.
IT is more than just a career to me, it is my life-long hobby.
I had the amazing opportunity to speak at Comms vNext 2019 on upgrading from Lync 2013/SFB2015 to Skype for Business Server 2019. This was truely a remarkable event and one that I will remeber for a lifetime. To learn more, CLICK HERE
Currently, I have my Teams Administrator Associate, AudioCodes ACA, MCSE: Productivity Solutions, and MCSA: Office 365 certifications.
I am a member of the Skype and Teams Users Group which is a group where IT professionals that are interested in/actively working with the Microsoft UC platform get together to discuss different topics about the product. Additionally, I also participate in the Bing, Windows, Windows Server, & Xbox Insider programs. These programs let individuals like myself provide feedback that helps shape the future of the products and services!
