IBM and RIM launch Enterprise Collaboration and Social Networking on BlackBerry platform
IBM and Research In Motion (RIM) have announced the availability of rich, new social networking applications for BlackBerry smartphones. The companies are bringing the BlackBerry Client for IBM Lotus Quickr and a new version of the BlackBerry Client for IBM Lotus Connections to market through IBM.

Lotus Connections social software on BlackBerry smartphones enables mobile workers to tap into their colleagues' expertise and internal knowledge bases. Lotus Quickr software allows them to more easily collaborate on documents and files. Lotus Sametime brings secure enterprise Instant Messaging into the mix. Together these mobile apps allow workers to more easily and effectively participate on team projects while outside the office or away from their desks.

"The combination of Lotus Software and the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution offers customers an enterprise social networking and collaboration solution that can help busy professionals work smarter on the move," said Alistair Rennie, general manager, IBM Lotus Software. "This new agreement between IBM and RIM reinforces our mutual commitment to customers."

"We are making Lotus Software easily accessible to customers that are already working through IBM sales channels," said Jeff McDowell, Senior Vice President, Alliances at Research In Motion. "This agreement expands RIM's channels of distribution and helps us meet the growing market demand for enterprise social networking and collaboration solutions."
