Microsoft will be rolling out the latest incarnation of Office Communications Server soon. Rather than doing a live event or multiple live events across the country, Microsoft is doing the official unveiling of OCS 2007 R2 on February 3rd via the Web. You can register to attend the virtual event by clicking here.
OCS 2007 R2 has been much anticipated in the unified communications world. With R2, Microsoft adds a significant number of new features and capabilities. New call management features enable a receptionist or executive assistant to filter and route incoming calls. The desktop sharing and collaboration features will work across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. Organizations will be able to set up persistent, theme-based group chat rooms for better collaboration and communication between team members. The list goes on.
You can learn more about the upcoming release by visiting the What’s New in Office Communications Server 2007 R2 site. Even better, schedule some time on your calendar for February 3rd and attend the free launch event via the Web.
