Are SharePoint and Connections the New UC Clients?

I just read a very interesting article named "Are SharePoint and Connections the New UC Clients?"
On sentence is very important in that article: "The challenge to all of us in the enterprise communications and UC market is to embrace this delivery of communications as part of a business process, rather than as a separate silo which requires the user to switch from one application to another."

The link between Polycom RealPresence and IBM connections illustrates that powerful idea... Contextual collabration & Communication. That demo show this in action (here).

UC2 is definitely the action behind Social Business, providing tools you use when you need to do business now.
