More Communication About UC

Microsoft is beginning to make some real moves in the area of Unified Communications (UC) with real products, real partnerships and a real chance to finally get this UC train rolling.

Many might argue that other vendors, particularly those in the networking space, invented UC and Microsoft merely jumped on the bandwagon. And they'd be right -- except that these vendors never really lit a match under the concept the way Microsoft has. So, tough beans!

Now Microsoft is rolling out its secret weapon: developers. Late last week, Microsoft introduced a raft of UC development tools for the enterprise. That's the icing on the cake, as UC only becomes interesting when it's been tweaked for a particular use.
