What is Skype for Business

In 2015, Lync became know as “Skype for Business”. It included a new server release and upgrades to Office 365 while integrating millions of Skype users into the business environment.  To take advantage of the integration of Skype and Lync, current Lync server clients will need to upgrade to the Skype for Business Server.  No hardware upgrades would be required, just an OS upgrade.  If you are an Office 365 customer, the updates will be automatic.

All the functionality of Lync has been included in “Skype for Business”
