Jabber End of Development

Rumor is Cisco is no longer going to do any further feature development for Jabber besides some features coming up in the next release.  They want everyone to move to Spark.  They have given Jabber 3-4 years more before they announce end of life.   Anyone here knows if this is true?

Pedro, Jabber has very active development and roadmap going on at this time. We are seeing robust sales and large scale deployments in the market and we are committed to continue to invest and improve Jabber for the foreseeable future.

Nothing like that is true. While spark is definitely the messaging tool of the future there is still a very solid base for customers to use jabber type clients. Being a partner no information like this has been announced by cisco product managers

Thanks

Many people said that about Jabber and CUCI-Lync a few years ago.  As long as there is a demand for on-premise, real time communication, Jabber will be available.  Customers dictate what products and features are available not the other way around.

We heard this announcement directly from Cisco SE/AM.  They advised us to start moving to Spark if its a green field install, they were told Jabber had reached feature maturity and would eventually be end of sale.  We were about to deploy Jabber with the possibility of removing over our current Lync environment.  But this announcement has now made us re-evaluate removing Lync
