Skype for Business – what another name?

Some products get a name and stick with that name:

  • Word
  • PowerPoint
  • Excel

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.
