Forrester: Microsoft Is A Leader In Enterprise Instant Messaging

Next to Gartner Group (focussing on Unified Communications rather than ‘just” Enterprise IM), Forrester Research recognises Microsoft as a leader in the field of Enterprise IM :

In the fall of 2007, Microsoft released Office Communication Server (OCS) as a major upgrade to its existing Live Communication Server offering. New to OCS are on-premise Web conferencing, videoconferencing, improved presence capabilities, and a host of partnerships to extend the value of the underlying platform. With excellent integration into Office 2007 and SharePoint and a strong unified communications strategy, the value of OCS extends well beyond basic chat.

  1. Alan,
    The quote is not in this article, I can not publish content from the actual report.
    And .. yes I am biased
    I also did not include any quotes from the Gartner report. Which is, as you know most likely, mutch more benefitial to Microsoft.

  2. Darren,
    As you very well point out, there are many aspects to leadership 😉
    Remember 2003 ? Microsoft didn’t even have an Enterprise IM solution, IBM was leading with SameTime. We’re only 4 years in the game and already part of the leaders.
    Please take the time to read the Gartner report …
