CRN | Breaking News | Lotus GM Demonstrates Activity Collaboration In Future Notes Client: "IBM Lotus Software General Manager Ambuj Goyal Wednesday demonstrated for the first time publicly new activity based collaboration capabilities inside a future version of the Notes client.
Goyal showed off the new activity collaboration capabilities, which are already part of Lotus' Workplace 2.5 managed client, as part of a sneak peak at how the Notes interface and client will evolve in the future. Goyal would not comment on exactly when the new features will show up in the Notes client.
Last year, Lotus added four to five million new Notes/Domino users, said Goyal. Furthermore, he said that last year 1,500 customers switched from a non IBM messaging environment to Notes/Domino.
Notes/Domino now has an installed base of 61,000 customers and 118 million users, said Goyal. "Messaging is no longer a nice to have technology," he said. "Messaging and collaboration is becoming mission critical.""
