IT-Director.com: IBM's new workplace strategy revitalises Lotus "With the release of IBM Lotus Notes Domino 6.5, IBM is fleshing out its IBM Lotus Workplace strategy. Lotus Workplace is IBM's new strategy to reinvigorate Lotus Notes and place it at the centre of a new strategy to support the information worker.
Although Lotus Notes has always been a powerful collaborative tool, the new Lotus Workplace strategy will fix many of the problems have prevented it dominating this sector of the market. The migration of Lotus Domino to Lotus Workplace puts Lotus Notes firmly on a path towards a modular open architecture, it increases the flexibility of the interface with portal capabilities and it reaches new audiences with a cost of ownership two orders of magnitude lower than the current client server system. This announcement, coming hard on the heels of Microsoft's announcement of the collaboration features of Office 2003, shows how serious major software companies are about the importance of the information worker environment for their future growth."
