IBM launches social networking and collaboration cloud service

LotusLive Engage enables businesses to work smarter in the cloud

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has launched LotusLive Engage, an integrated social networking and collaboration cloud service designed for businesses of all sizes.

According to IBM, LotusLive Engage will become available on April 7, 2009. It is expected to enable companies to communicate and collaborate in new ways without increasing the resources in their IT departments.

IBM has said that LotusLive Engage gives any business the tools they need to work smarter with clients, partners and suppliers. It helps businesses connect and work with each other easily – outside the firewall. Designed for business, the security-rich services of LotusLive Engage include profile and contact management, online meetings, file sharing, instant messaging, and lightweight project management capabilities.

The services are built using open, web-based standards and an open business model. LotusLive services will enable ‘Click to Cloud’ – the integration of the LotusLive online services with existing on-premise Lotus solutions, added IBM.

Sean Poulley, vice president of online collaboration and cloud services at IBM, said: In a challenging economic environment, it’s more valuable than ever for companies to come together in the cloud quickly and easily, using powerful communication and collaboration tools that integrate with their existing applications.
