Last week at Lotusphere I was pleased to help announce that RIM will be providing a mobile solution for Lotus Connections. Lotus Connections helps you build out your social networking inside your company and now you can extend your capability to mobile devices. It has always made sense, and really only a matter of time before a mobile solution was available for Lotus Connections. With Lotus Connections profiling service, you can quickly and easily find experts and resources across your company. Viewing someone's profile allows you to find out more information about that person such as projects they are working on or have worked on. You can surf up, down, and across the reporting structure and find all the business relevant information to contact them. I can't tell you how many times I've been on my mobile device and wish I had profile access to my entire corporate directory. Well guess what, now I will with RIM's solutions as I can easily search by name, job, keywords to find the right people and start an email or phone call with them.
Dogear, our social bookmarking service can also be leveraged from Blackberry devices. I love to use Dogear as I can easily manage and find my bookmarks as well as others regardless of the machine or browser I use. Now I can use my Blackberry device to get access to my bookmarks when I'm on the go. I am extremely excited to be working with RIM on their solution.
