Microsoft issues beta of Communicator Web Access

Microsoft next month will release a beta version of a forthcoming product dubbed Microsoft Office Communicator Web Access, an official said during an interview at the Collaborative Technologies Conference last week. The product will serve as a Web-based interface to Microsoft’s Live Communications Server.

Office Communicator Web Access will target business users and focus on three key areas: instant messaging, presence, and scheduling integration. “This is important for people who don’t have the latest versions of Windows, use different operating systems, or people who are traveling and checking in at a kiosk,” said Ed Simnett, group product manager for real-time collaboration at Microsoft. The product is part of Microsoft’s strategy to broaden the reach of Communicator and Live Communications Server among enterprise users.
