Integrate Presence Information and Real-Time Communication in Client Applications
Presence unites contact information-phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and instant message account-with all the ways you communicate: phone, conferencing, instant messaging, and e-mail. With presence, you can start a conversation with one click.
Presence information travels throughout the computing environment. Wherever a contact’s name appears-in an email, on a team-site, or a Document Workspace-status and contact information travels with the name. Presence integrates with Windows Mobile devices, so real-time status and contact information is available when you’re on the road too.
When your users log on to their machines, they automatically log into presence. Presence pulls data from Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 to put complete directory information and real-time availability at users’ fingertips. Presence depends on your existing infrastructure, so there is no data entry and no new objects to build in the directory.
Microsoft unified communications technologies are interdependent solutions. Ideal working environments have a complete build-out of technologies. But some technologies can work on their own.
