Loving Lync?

In April of last year I published a story about Microsoft Unified Communications.

This was soon after Lync came out. I was expecting hear good things, but not much more. Let's face it, UC has less sex appeal than Chris Christie and Harry Reid put together.

Boy was I wrong. Microsoft UC can be a game changer. Sure, you can save gobs of money through VoIP and downsizing legacy telecom infrastructure, but Lync lets you do new things and at the same time do old things in new ways. It's really about integration with common productivity apps and adding things like IM, presence, and Web and video conferencing.

I reckon it's time to give it a fresh look once again and I'm looking for your help. Are you using Microsoft UC or tools from another vendor? If so, shoot me an e-mail at dbarney@redmondmag.com and I'll be in touch.
