According to newly released IDC's report IBM is "marketshare leader in the Social Platform market based on total software revenue for 2009".
Of course it is good news for IBM, that it's Social Software is very demanded on the market (and by the way, IBM have not only Lotus Connections as Social Software - do not forget about Lotus Quickr). But this means that IBM need to continue put many efforts to stay no. 1, because of strong competition with others (in Russia it is mostly the Microsoft with SharePoint 2010).
Can't wait to see the reaction from the customers on Lotus Connections 3.0, which is coming very soon :)
