Microsoft, Softbank and Japan Telecom Oh My

Microsoft Co. Ltd., SOFTBANK BB Corp., and JAPAN TELECOM CO. LTD., announced that they are developing a security-enhanced, integrated communications service that combines VoIP, e-mail, Internet access, groupware, presence, instant messaging and desktop services with network infrastructure, and that they have formed a strategic business alliance to provide this service as a business-oriented solution.

I get the feeling this just may be the first step towards my dream of Just in Time Communications or JiTC. SOFTBANK is the largest VoIP provider in Japan and perhaps if this deployment is successful we will find it coming to the US and other parts of the world.

Microsoft has impressed me as of late with their JiTC initiatives. At the last ITEXPO, Microsoft demoed something very close to the perfect JiTC solution. Well they showed a video of how it would work. They call it real-time communications.

The Redmond based OS leader is really in the best position to lead the charge as they have Live Communication Server and own so many desktop and mobile apps needed to really make communications more efficient.

Hats off to theses three companies for leading the corporate charge into JiTC. Good luck to all of you. Release.
