Microsoft’s mission to connect its consumer and business communications services is running later than many expected, according to the latest Lync roadmap. Microsoft provided an updated roadmap for its Lync unified-communications platform on February 19, the opening day of the company’s first Lync Conference in San Diego. The biggest piece of new news is that Lync-Skype connectivity/federation is coming later than many expected. The first piece of that connectivity — sharing of presence, instant messaging (IM) and voice across the two services — will be available to all Lync users as of June 2013. Video connectivity between Skype and Lync isn’t coming until some time in the next 18 months, officials confirmed today.
