Collaboration Loop - Lotusphere 2007 Impressions: IBM Lotus Quickr

Part 3 (of 4) in my Lotusphere post series 

While IBM Lotus Connections (an offering in the fashionable “Web 2.0” and “social software” domains) grabbed more Lotusphere 2007 press headlines, Quickr is likely to be the most important product in IBM’s ongoing collaboration competition with Microsoft.  Quickr, despite its somewhat perplexing name (suggesting Yahoo’s Flickr, which is more about social software than enterprise collaboration, and thus has more in common with Lotus Connections than Quickr), if successful, will become the IBM Lotus competitive alternative to Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, offering team workspaces and application templates, content libraries, and integration with clients such as Notes, Sametime, Microsoft Office, and Windows Explorer.
