Some products get a name and stick with that name:
Microsoft’s Unified Communications tool-set hasn’t been that fortunate.
A reminder for those of you with a short memory:
- Live Communication Server – 2003 to 2006
- Office Communications Server – 2007 to 2009
- Lync Server – 2010 to 2014
- Skype for Business – 2015 to ???
Skype is clearly a much stronger brand than Lync and a merger of the two products was never going to use the Lync brand, but you have to feel a little sorry for a team that’s embarking on yet another renaming exercise.
