Microsoft – Lync and Skype

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

Hi all, Microsoft has this perceived vision that eventually everyone will run their phones over the Internet. With Microsoft’s Lync collaboration tool and the recent purchase of Skype that may be a viable reality in the coming years.

Microsoft’s Lync product is coming along. It is immature for large businesses at the moment that need lots of call queues and the like but Skype could give Lync the final piece to the puzzle that allows them to take the PBX up into the cloud. That will make telephone providers upset but I don’t Microsoft is the only one trying to do that, everyone is, even traditional telephone providers see this as the way the world is going. Tie Lync into Skype and give Lync a few more years and you will have a solid offering that will compete with the larger players out there.

Until next time,
