We're floating on a cloud today as Computer Reseller News CRN) has named LotusLive “Best Cloud Application for 2009” in its annual look back at the year’s best products The review from the CRN team is glowing. Here is the excerpt:
Cloud Application: LotusLive
"If you had written off IBM's Lotus group for dead, you'd have been very, very wrong. Not only is IBM's Cambridge, Mass.-based software operation as feisty as ever, its adoption of the hosted model for its core products is actually giving it a major technical edge. Case in point: LotusLive. The CRN Test Center looked at, and liked, LotusLive Engage and LotusLive iNotes -- two hosted applications that bring collaboration and messaging to IBM's cloud in a significant and aggressive way. While rivals including Microsoft have made no bones about the fact that they will be players in the cloud space with its messaging, e-mail and collaboration, Lotus is there in a business-ready way right now. As enterprises begin what could be a long, measured transition from on-premise IT, to a hybrid model, to cloud computing, the full suite of LotusLive products gives the channel a way to get started right this minute." --Computer Reseller News
