How has presence evolved beyond instant messaging "buddy lists?" What applications use/require presence capabilities today? Presence servers gather presence information from various sources and provide unified presence
information to end users or applications. Today, rich presence provides context: status info about any of the communications or workflow tools a person may use along with the person�s context. COMMfusion explores presence in this presentation.
UC integrates real-time and non-real-time communications with business processes and requirements based on presence capabilities, presenting a consistent unified user interface and experience across multiple devices and media types. COMMfusion discusses the players, the pattens, the status of UC and future scenarios for the market.
