Happy New Year to those on the Western Calendar! Catching up from a little time off, I see a couple of news items from last week of note you might be interested in.
No Jitter published an article ("Decoding 'Collaboration for realistic decision-making") on collaboration: what it is, how it affects businesses, and building a unified communications roadmap. IBM Quickr is mentioned specifically as a means of an information repository or shared workspace:
In many cases, there is also a need for an information repository or shared workspace, using enterprise tools such as Microsoft SharePoint, IBM Quickr, or dozens of other collaboration products; in those cases, the communications tools are being built into, or tightly integrated with, those collaborative workspaces.
And within the broader coverage of Avaya's recent announced enhancements to its Avaya Agile Communication Environment, many articles (such as this one from UC Strategies) including mention of the support for IBM Sametime and Lotus Notes. A similar piece from Network World also had this to say:
As for IBM environments, there's a packaged application to embed voice in the latest release of IBM Lotus Notes and Sametime. Employees can click-to-call and see telephony presence from within Lotus Release 8.5.1 while using deskphones from Avaya or other vendors. – Network World
