Aprílové „Práva na používanie produktov“ ohlásili niektoré dôležité zmeny:

Končí Forefront Identity Manager 2010
R2 ako samostatný serverovský produkt a stáva sa súčasťou Windows Servera.
Pre prístup k funkcionalite FIM je potrebný buď FIM CAL, EMS SL, ECS SL, alebo
Azure AD Premium SL.

V cenníkoch bude zmena účinná od mája 2015.

Zároveň sa od Apríla mení Lync Server Online na Skype for Business
Online  a od Mája Lync Server (on premise) na Skype for Business.
SKU (P/N) pre LicSA a SA zostanú rovnaké, len sa zmení popis/názov položky. Samotný Lync klient ako produkt zostáva až kým nebude uvedený na trh Office 2016.

Lync becomes Skype for Business

As initially announced in November, Lync will become Skype
for Business with a new client experience, new server release, and updates to
the service in Office 365.  Skype for Business brings together the
familiar experience and user love of Skype with the enterprise security,
compliance, and control from Lync to create the most loved and trusted
communications platform for doing things together.  Information on the
Skype for Business announcement is located here.  These changes will occur
for Lync Online April 1st, 2015 and for our Lync On-Prem
Server products on May 1st:

·
Lync Online products will undergo a name change to Skype for
Business effective April 1st, 2015.  Only the SKU
description and PFAM description are changing.

·
Lync Server On-Prem product SKUs will be replaced with new Skype
for Business SKUs effective May 1st, 2015.   These new SKUs
represent new versioned offers of the Lync Server products under the Skype for
Business branding.   The L/SA and SA SKUs for Lync, which are always
versionless, will not be net new for May. Instead, we will be changing the
names of these existing SKUs to reflect Skype for Business.
You will find the new and updated SKUs published on the May
Price List.

·
Lync client software will not be fully refreshed until Office
2016.  However, the Lync team will be releasing software updates to the
Lync client that will refresh the branding on existing clients through an
in-client update.
