WPC 2011 - July 12 - Kurt Delbene Keynote
Kurt DelBene thanked partners for making Microsoft Office a continuing success story—one billion PC’s around the world are running office, with Office 2010 selling a copy every second and being deployed at five times the rate of Office 2007. DelBene talked about the huge opportunities with Lync, due to looming turnover of legacy PBX lines. We saw demonstrations of HD video integration and Polycom’s take on multiparty videoconferencing with active speaker switching. A new Lync mobile client will be available for Windows Phone 7 this calendar year. Other mobile platforms are expected to follow in relatively short order, and Lync integration into Xbox is on the horizon.
