BPOS is now Office 365

Microsoft announced the branding for the next version of BPOS today – the new name is Office 365.

We’ll see it early next year, but we already have a pretty good idea of what will be there. All of the constituent products (SharePoint, Exchange, LiveMeeting and Office Communication Server, now Lync) will be brought up to their most recent versions, and the Office Web Applications will be added in. In light of the changes, and the expected change in focus to the Office Web Apps, the new name makes a lot of sense. I’m just glad that I don’t have to call it BPOS anymore…
