Office 365 - Will Office 365 Lync Online be available to campus users as part of the transition to Office 365?
Not initially. The implementation of Office 365 Exchange Online is not dependent upon deploying Office 365 Lync Online, so it was determined to be out-of-scope as part of the initial transition to Office 365. WiscChat will still be available to campus users and supported by DoIT during and after the transition to Office 365 Exchange Online. This allows time for Office 365 Lync Online to be reevaluated after the Office365 email and calendar transition is well under way. At that time, a decision will be made about a new initiative to deploy Office 365 Lync Online.
