RIM has breakthrough at Lotusphere


Why do I have the feeling that the schwag at Lotusphere pales in comparison to that of CES or MacWorld? BUT! The news produced is pretty great, thankfully. Just today while all of you were rolling out of bed, RIM let out a press release announcing the first “seamless, enterprise-grade implementation of wireless voice and instant messaging convergence” that shows off just how well the BES and IBM Lotus Sametime and IBM Lotus Domino work together.

“The ability to securely extend voice, email, intranet and real-time collaboration applications to mobile workers is becoming a competitive imperative and BlackBerry Enterprise Server is proving to be a unique and powerful advantage for our enterprise customers,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO, Research In Motion.

“In this next phase of our continuing collaboration with IBM, we are focusing on enabling seamless access to the collaborative elements of the robust Lotus Sametime and Lotus Domino environments with new levels of convergence, efficiency and usability.”
