There are tens of thousands of people out there developing applications on Microsoft Exchange, yet there is little that Microsoft knows about this developer community.

For example, what applications have been developed, what other communications tools besides Exchange have been using, and most importantly, what Microsoft could do to better help the developer community?

In order to get a better insights Microsoft engaged with Frost and Sullivan, an independent third party, to conduct a Unified Communications Developer survey.

If you are a developer of unified communications applications such as Exchange, please spare us 15 minutes and fill out this survey:

Based on the data collected in the survey, we hope to develop a set of activities to provide better assistance to you in building great enterprise solutions on the Microsoft Unified Communications platform.

We will keep you posted on such activities via this blog.

Please note that Frost and Sullivan will keep all your individual responses confidential and anonymous. Thanks for your time!
