Administering Unified Contact Center Enterprise with CVP Part 1 (AUCCE1)

Administering Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Part 1 (AUCCE Part 1) is a 5 day instructor-led course intended for system engineers and customers who will be involved with day 2 support of a UCCE solution deployed in a CVP comprehensive environment.

AUCCE Part 1 course gives the learner an understanding of the requirements, resources and tools needed to perform routine adds, moves and changes in the inbound/outbound UCCE environment. This course is intended for those administering the solution, or who may be responsible for Level 1-2 support of the solution.  This course also serves as a good stepping-stone for the corresponding Administering Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Part 2 (AUCCE Part 2) course, and should be considered as a prerequisite before taking Part 2.  This course is also a good companion course to the DUCCE course, which covers more detail on the installation/maintenance of the UCCE solution.

The overall goal of this course is to build an effective administrator of the solution by exposing the technical requirements of the solution and utilizing the solution tools for effective operation.  The learner will be exposed to CCE (ICM) and VXML scripting in this course to ensure basic competence with the solution.  For advanced scripting topics, refer to the AUCCE Part 2 or the CVPD course.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives: 

Demonstrate an overall understanding of the Cisco Unified CCE v10.x solution from a component functional level.

Demonstrate basic proficiency with add/move/change of the ACD/PBX (agent/skill) environment of UCCE.

Demonstrate basic proficiency with add/move/change of the IVR (prompt/collect/queue) environment of UCCE including both MicroApp and VXML solution scripting (ICM Scripting and Call Studio scripting).

Configure a Supervisor to enable CUIC Reporting functionality including running stock reports and creating dashboards.
