Skype for Business team here from Microsoft. Ask us Anything!
Hello again Reddit!
We are from the Skype for Business team at Microsoft. You may remember our product as Microsoft Lync (Lync Server, Lync Online….) and from our last AMA. So yesterday we released the update that brought the Skype for Business client to the world and thought it would be a good time to come back. So hey! Taimoor and Jamie are leading this pack and we’ll probably get a few more folks along the ride. Oh yeah, here’s proof.
Anyway, in case you haven’t heard, Skype for Business is a communications and collaboration platform that brings together the familiar experience of Skype with the security, compliance & control you expect from Microsoft. In short, we help businesses every day communicate better.
It’s been quite a year already. We’ve finished up the product, made a bunch of announcements at Enterprise Connect last month about everything from new video devices to cloud telephony in Office 365. Now that the product is out we’re planning a ton of sessions at Microsoft Ignite where Taimoor and I will also be speaking.
OK, that’s enough. We will be here for the next two hours. Let’s do this!
Edit : Phew! We have to run now Reddit! Thanks for all the questions and all the passion around the work we are doing. We tried to get as many of the questions as possible and will come back when we can. We have to get back to work so we can make this product even better for you. Thanks again and see you next time!
