IBM and RIM mobilise Web 2.0 capabilities
IBM and Research In Motion (RIM) are taking mobile work beyond email by delivering to mainstream business professionals the full line of Web 2.0-powered IBM Lotus collaboration software and information on demand on the BlackBerry platform.

The joint initiative enables customers to securely manage their communications, contacts and schedules and collaborate and network through social software, all from within the familiar, intuitive interface of their BlackBerry smartphones.

This includes the general availability of the new BlackBerry Client for IBM Lotus Connections, IBM’s social software for business.

“As the world enters the ‘Era of the Mobile Web’, mobile devices like BlackBerry are outnumbering TV’s, credit cards and PC’s, and are becoming increasingly critical to business operations for companies of all sizes globally,” said Bob Picciano, GM Lotus Software. “Today’s announcement extends the portfolio of IBM’s industry-leading social computing and collaboration offerings available to customers as they increasingly rely on their BlackBerry smartphones.”

“The organisational and personal benefits of the Lotus collaboration suite together with the mobility and security advantages of the widely-adopted BlackBerry platform provide an unmatched solution for enterprise customers,” said Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO at Research In Motion.

With this release IBM and RIM are making IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM dashboard software available everywhere. The platform also provides unified communications features through a BlackBerry Client for IBM Lotus Sametime, that lets people access their full buddy list, send and receive instant messages, view presence information and convert an IM session to a phone call with a simple click.

IBM says the BlackBerry platform is the only mobile enterprise solution to provide mobile access to all major Lotus collaboration solutions today.
