Microsoft Lync takes communications to new heights

Microsoft Sri Lanka has released Microsoft Lync, the next generation of communications that connects people in new ways. Recently released by Microsoft Corp. in the US markets, Lync is a single platform that integrates instant messaging, presence, audio, video and web conferencing and voice to bring people together in the ways they communicate best.

Lync provides one interface that works with applications that businesses know and use today, including Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange. Microsoft Lync is now known as the new family brand for the products formerly known as Microsoft Communications Server, Microsoft Office Communications Online and Microsoft Office Communicator which now also includes Microsoft Lync Web App and Microsoft Lync Online. "Lync delivers on Microsoft's vision to unify all of the areas of modern business communication, giving people a more collaborative experience with features like HD video conference recording activity feeds," said Director, Microsoft Sri Lanka Pubudu Basnayake. "In addition to transforming how people communicate, IT departments can also benefit from Lync and evolve their infrastructure while enhancing or eliminating their traditional PBX systems, saving time and money."

Microsoft Lync can make every engagement a virtual face-to-face meeting, because any interaction can include video and audio conferencing, application and desktop sharing, instant messaging, and telephony. Lync has been designed from the ground up to work with Microsoft Office, SharePoint and Exchange, which helps reduce end-user adoption hurdles and increase return on investment. People can also stay connected to others on a wide range of devices while away from the office and manage their communications and calls in new ways, such as easily moving a call from a PC to a mobile device while leaving the office without disrupting the conversation.

Microsoft Lync is now available as a hosted solution. Microsoft recently announced Office 365, an always-up-to-date cloud service that brings together Lync, SharePoint, Exchange, and Office. IM, presence and conferencing will be available in Office 365 via Lync Online, which will be available later this year. Office 365 gives people the power of Office with the capabilities of Microsoft's market-leading servers - all in a single cloud service.
