Sixteen months after its $110m acquisition of groupware specialist, Collabra Software Inc (CI No 2,756), Netscape Communications Corp is at last fully integrating the technology into its client and server product lines. Having previewed early beta versions of its Communicator client package, combining browsing, electronic mail, collaboration and conferencing into a monolithic client suite, Netscape has announced a beta of its server packages in Suite Spot 3.0. The Suite Spot Web server line includes Collabra Server 3.0, which has been given additional encryption features. It also includes the latest version of its mail server Messenger Server 3.0, and Proxy Server 2.5 for Microsoft Corp Windows NT. The Enterprise Server 3.0, supports the Internet Inter-ORB Protocol request broker which is designed to improve the communication speed between client and server. All products are slated for the end of the quarter to coincide with the delayed release of Communicator which was originally scheduled for late last year. Communicator and SuiteSpot 3.0 are Netscape’s attempt to play in the groupware market against Microsoft and IBM Corp.
