A few months ago, we let you know about the availability of System Center Advisor for Lync (System Center Advisor for Lync Server 2010). Today, we want to make you aware of the following two important developments.
System Center Advisor is now FREE to Microsoft customers in supporting countries! Check out Microsoft Online Services International Availability page for the complete list. Trial periods are a thing of the past and Software Assurance is no longer required for taking advantage of the Advisor service.
Are you using Operations Manager to monitor Lync? If so, we’re excited to tell you about the release of the System Center Advisor Connector for Operations Manager Preview! This connector enables Advisor to be an attached service to your Operations Manager deployment.
You can read the announcement here: System Center: Operations Manager Engineering Blog: Announcing: SC Advisor Connector for Operations Manager Preview.

We are hard at work on adding Lync 2013 support to Advisor, so stay tuned for updates on that front.
