Today I attended a Lotus Collaboration Summit that was held here in Cape Town. The more I see and hear about IBM’s new Lotus range of products the more impress I get. Products like Notes 8, Sametime 7.5.1, Quickr 8 and Connections 1 will put IBM back where it should be in the collaboration space. IBM has really embraced the idea of social networking and collaboration with these group of products.
It was also good to see how modern looking these products are by using WEB2.0 technologies.
I am off to go install Notes 8. And I can now even get rid of Word, Excel and Powerpoint since I can do all that within the Notes 8 client.
