IBM Boosts IM, Presence in Lotus 6.5

IBM Boosts IM, Presence in Lotus 6.5: "But Microsoft and IBM are following increasingly divergent plans when it comes to client support. With its Office 2003 suite, Microsoft is pinning its strategy on the dedicated, desktop client as the future of productivity applications. Microsoft's offering -- based on Office 2003, Office Live Communication Server, Office SharePoint Services and other technologies -- also is aimed squarely at the Windows platform. "

It's been a long time coming for IM (Sametime) and Notes - formal plans started in 97'! :-( The benefit story, however - regardless of delay, has only gotten stronger as infrastructure, applications and most importantly mindset have caught up with the initial concepts.
