One of the many competitive advantages that Lotus Connections has over other vendors is our relationships with a wide variety of partners and our commitment to build first class solutions. We’ve already made some great announcements around integration with Microsoft Office, RIM, SocialText, Confluence, NewsGator and more. While many of the niche social software vendors concentrate all of their development effort on a browser UI, many of them aren’t able to take a step back to and understand a browser interface only is limiting. The truth is, I have never met a company where every employee was able to access all their applications from a browser only. There are some division’s with-in organizations that can succeed with just a shared computer and browser.
Your probably asking where am I going with this. I can’t stress enough the importance of integrating Connections with existing applications in your enterprise. Today IBM and iEnterprises announced the integration of iEnterprises' customer relationship management (CRM) software, iExtensions CRM, with Lotus Connections.
