Enterprise Software Roadmaps for Microsoft Products

This is a few months old, but it’s a really nice presentation about what’s coming down the line for some of Microsoft enterprise-level products, including Hyper-V, Windows Server and Exchange.

The short take:

  • Windows 8 will be here in late 2012.
  • Windows Server 2012/Hyper-VS Server 2012 will be here in late 2012/early 2013.
  • Office 2013 will arrive in 2013.
  • Exchange 2013 will arrive in late 2012/early 2013.
  • SharePoint 2013 will arrive in 2013 or later.
  • The Project 2013 family will arrive in 2013 or later.
  • The Lync 15 family will arrive in 2013 or beyond.
  • Dynamics CRM 2014 and Dymanics AX 7 will arrive in 2013 or later.
  • Much of the System Center 2012 wave (Operations Manager, Configuration Manager, Service Manager 2010 R2) will arrive in the first half of 2012.  Other products – DPM and VMM – will arrive in 2012 as well.
  • Windows InTune v2 will arrive in 2012.
  • ForeFront Endpoint Protection 2012 will arrive in 2012.
  • Other ForeFront Protection products (Lync, SharePoint, Exchange) will come in 2013 and beyond.
  • ForeFront Identity Manager 2012 will come in 2012.
