As a supplement to my previous entry regarding new IBM/Polycom integration, I've just finalized a "deployment scenario" entry in Sametime Wiki.
That entry will provide you more informations and an insight of what you can easily do with a Sametime/Polycom infrastructure.

A few months ago, I wrote a little framework making easy to write a bot for Sametime using the Python language syntax instead of Java.
The framework has continue to grow up, and this new version is now more stable than the previous. Bots can now detect when the user close his chat window, and they can also receive files.
This framework can be very handy when you have to demonstrate Sametime in a different way that you used to do, and for those who were at TechSoftware 2011 (Bois-Colombes), it's the framework I used during my demo.
We currently have several bots running under PyBot on our Sametime 8.5.2 demo platform at the IBM Collaboration Solution Center (Montpellier) and some of them can have a "real" conversation, can tell you who is Romain Lienard (using IBM Connections Profiles Integration), what is the link for OTR -our internal travel reservation tool- using IBM Connections Bookmarks Integration, where is Bois-Colombes (using Google Maps integration), or convert a PPT file into an ODP file simply by sending your ppt file to the bot. I have even sent a tweet using a bot a few days ago !
If you want to have an idea of how I wrote the sample demo bot that you can see on top of this entry without download the zipfile, below is the sample demo script :
PyBot is available here for download.
Any question or suggestion are welcome !

Genesys UC Connect facilitates the integration of Genesys Customer Interaction Management (CIM) software platform with Lotus Sametime. The integration helps bring knowledge workers from diverse departments and the back office together into the contact center process flow on a part-time basis without formally becoming a customer service agent. It does this by intelligently routing calls based on presence, dynamic location awareness (provided by Lotus Sametime), plus a host of intelligent routing controls the Genesys software provides.
Genesys UC Connect for IBM Sametime “subscribes” to presence provided by IBM Sametime to determine the availability or location of experts, and back office and branch office workers. Genesys UC Connect for IBM Sametime enables contact centers to leverage universal employee access — the ability to extend the resource pool to encompass any agent or expert — to enable branch employees, back office employees, and expert agents, regardless of their location, to efficiently manage their time and resources.
Detailled presentation of Genesys UCConnect for Sametime : link
Genesys Product Team has created a community on Lotus Greenhouse. The focus of this community is on business objectives, methods and technical means for extending customer service beyond the traditional contact center. Utilizing Unified Communications and Social Enterprise along with bleeding edge Contact Center solutions allows anyone in a company to become part of the customer experience.
You can download a click-to-through demo of Genesys UCConnect for IBM Sametime.
Want to see a real demo, don't hesitate to email me.
A demo environment is available in the IBM Collaboration Solutions Center.
