Microsoft Addresses Enterprise Chat

Yesterday, during a web conference broadcast from San Francisco, Microsoft introduced new products aimed at improving enterprise-level chat.

The products, Microsoft's Live Meeting web conferencing and collaboration service; Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 for corporate instant messaging; and Office Communicator 2005, offer improved instant messaging capabilities as well as increased video-conferencing functionality.

Office Communicator is an enterprise-level instant message client based on the design of Windows Messenger, complete with enhancements designed to improve enterprise communication. Some of the features include the ability to re-route messages to a recipient's mobile phone and SPIM blocking.

Microsoft also updated its video conferencing package, Live Meeting.

However, the introduction causing the most reaction was the update applied to Microsoft's Office Live Communications Server. According to ZDNet,

The company said it would begin offering an update to its Live Communications Server that will let corporate users swap instant messages with users in public messaging networks, including those used by Microsoft's MSN Messenger, Yahoo Instant Messenger and America Online's AOL Instant Messenger, or AIM, product.

Being able to chat across multiple environments is quite a step for Microsoft, who is known for a xenomorphic approach to software development.
