I’ve just been reading over on Johann Kruse’s blog that Messenger for Mac 7 has been released. I guess for most people the big news for most people will be the usual Live Messenger support, but if you’re an Enterprise IT guy like me its the Office Communication Server (OCS)support that’s interesting.
One of the challenges I’ve got at work at the moment is how best to integrate Macs into our (mostly) Windows environment. Before we tackle the big problems we’re focusing on providing access to our basic services – email, file and IM.
At the the moment we’re using Live Communication Server rather than OCS, but hopefully we’ll be moving to OCS over the next year or so. One of the big drivers for that migration is OCS’s multi-party audio and video conferencing. Having a Mac client that supports this is a huge bonus.
Maybe it’s time I got myself a Mac of my own.
