What size company do you expect partners to use SOF with? It doesn't make sense to use SOF with a 25 person company so what is the recommended size?
Thanks for your feedback. The goal for SOF is to provide a framework for a successful Skype for Business application. Obviously if you want to all the right steps, sometimes this might seem a lot especially for smaller companies. It will be up to our customers and partners to decide how what components can be scaled down and how — e.g. if you look at Network Readiness, it will still be an important part given the impact network has on user experience. However for a 25 users company it should be a much easier and less complex exercise than for a world wide company with 1000s of users. Just get sure that you evaluate carefully what activities to exclude and what to size down. That being said we would be interested to hear more, if this sounds reasonable or if a scaled down version of SOF is something that would be required.
