Redmonk: IBM Lotus leder an innen Enterprise 2.0


IT-analytiker Michael Coté i det anerkjente analyseselskapet Redmonk fastslår at IBM er det IT-selskapet i verden som er raskest ute med nye teknologiske løsninger for sosial programvare Enterprise 2.0.

“When it comes to pulling in innovation from elsewhere, IBM is one of the quickest and earliest out there: Lotus has sucked in virtually all of the concepts from the Web and Enterprise 2.0 worlds”

“Lotus has still been delivering straight-up applications for awhile. Their portfolio is very Enterprise 2.0 heavy now with things way beyond Notes. While there may be a question about how much it costs vs. other offerings, the functionality seems genuinely helpful.”

Også James Governor, analytiker-kollega i Redmonk, som følger IBM’s fremdrift innen sosiale løsninger med lupe, har lignende synspunkter.

“So what about this Social Business stuff? IBM has some great assets there. The Lotus portfolio is surprisingly functional in terms of chatter based apps.”
