Microsoft Lync to be replaced by Skype for Business [Announcement]

The end of days has cometh for Microsoft Lync!

Microsoft has announced it will be replacing its enterprise-focused instant messaging and communication app Lync with Skype for Business.

There are promises that Skype for Business will remain an Office 365 service when it replaces Lync sometime in the first half of 2015.

However, this is very big news, especially for the advocates for and against Microsoft Lync.

The last voice connectivity change on this scale to come from Microsoft was the forced migration of those still running Windows Live Messenger to Skype.

So it’s nice to see Microsoft having a consolidation approach to their key voice and video communication software, rather than a whole range of different products offering the same capabilities.
