Exact Research participated in the Microsoft Technology Adoption Program (TAP) for Office Communication Server (OCS) 2007 R2. The video shows a proof of concept web community that allows people to collaborate in a more efficient way. We choose a web community, because the real value of the web and SaaS solutions are the increased collaboration capabilities. Increased efficiency in collaboration requires, among many other things, efficient communication the area where we see a bright future for unified communications, but just as new technology to replace traditional voice communications. Especially the presence and instant messaging are critical for success, because that is what helps to bridge generations. However this notice of presence and IM between people of different organizations also introduces many new legal, privacy and technical challenges.
We continue our research work on innovative collaboration solutions, while at the same time bring achieved results so far into our current product portfolio.
