Skype for Business

And so the announcement is [finally] made….. the next version of Lync, set for 1H 2015 will become ‘Skype for Business’. I think we all knew that this was going to happen, it was just a matter of when. I think we are all also in agreement that is the logical step for Microsoft to take, considering the audience and global presence that Skype has.

Me personally, I am keen to see the approach taken to upgrades (in place hopefully!), content sharing and federation now that we are essentially “one platform”.  With new client and server releases and updates to Office 365 there are busy times ahead for all of us!

One thought on “Skype for Business

  1. Yeah, no surprise on the branding announcement, and I’m certain that we’ll see a range of responses. I am hopeful that the aims of the exercise are achieved and we see an acceleration of adoption. Time will tell. It will be helpful to see the new look first hand and I’ll keep an open mind too.
