How Lync got its name and what's next for Microsoft enterprise users

We're back from WinConnections 2010! The show went great. Our Sales Engineer Tom and I were busy meeting and networking with Microsoft users, and giving them a sneak peek of what's to come in ProtoSphere and the new ways it will integrate with Microsoft Lync technology.

One of the biggest highlights for me was meeting Shaun Pierce, General Manager for Microsoft’s Lync Server Division. Shaun and his team head up development and testing of Microsoft's new Lync Server platform.

Shaun gave a great presentation last Tuesday, and afterward, I was able to snag him for a brief interview. He told me about how Microsoft landed on Lync as the new name for OCS, what he thinks is the biggest tech trend on enterprise users' radars today, and how Microsoft plans to respond.

Thanks for the interview, Shaun. More from WinConnections to come!
