Lync becomes Skype for Business !!!

Microsoft never stops innovation and today they made a significant announcement on next version of Lync, Microsoft re-branded next version of Lync as "Skype for Business" which is quite catchy, as per the announcement we can expect the product release in first half of 2015.

Here is the extract from the announcement:

In the first half of 2015, the next version of Lync will become Skype for Business with a new client experience, new server release, and updates to the service in Office 365. We believe that Skype for Business will again transform the way people communicate by giving organizations reach to hundreds of millions of Skype users outside the walls of their business.

This is really a great news and I am happy to share this to you along with other community members and I am all set to welcome the next version of Lync Server aka Skype for business
