Along with all the details of provisioning users in a Skype for Business/Lync environment, policy compliance is one of those moving targets that keeps IT folks needing the latest regulations.
While it may seem straightforward to apply compliance rules to in-country employees, what happens when employees relocate to an office in another country? In these cases, employees typically retain their Skype for Business user accounts along with the settings they operated within previously.
Take, for example, a London employee being relocated to an office in India. In order to ensure compliance, the following details need to be taken into consideration:
- The employee’s account may need different SfB/Lync policies (such as Voice Policy or Remote Access Policy); those that comply with local regulatory laws.
- A new phone number will likely have to be issued and assigned.
- The account will likely have to be moved to a local pool or registrar that provides compliant routing options (e.g. location based routing or Call Admission Control).
When the employee returns to London after six months, all changes need to revert so that the employee is once again compliant with his/her home country regulations. And, all of this should take place without the employee experiencing any disruptions.
