IBM Lotus Software General Manager Commits to J2EE as Platform of Future

(Orlando, FL) - Al Zollar, general manager, Lotus Software, IBM Software Group, kicked off Lotusphere 2002 this week, articulating IBM's vision to improve productivity through collaboration and leveraging knowledge while embracing the future of open standards. Zollar announced that the company will rebuild its technology to conform to the J2EE 1.3 standard to give their present and future customers full access and choice in standardizing on available platforms. This decision will help make Lotus accessible as a link to other software.

"Our core competency has always been using innovative technology to help people to collaborate, learn and take fuller advantage of their collective knowledge, across organizational and geographic boundaries," said Zollar. "Lotus has been promoting collaboration for ten or fifteen years and it's gratifying to see how the importance of collaboration has moved to center stage. Judging by what our customers tell me, we're delivering on our promise and we're moving on to an even more rewarding phase we call 'unleashing collaboration.'"

Zollar explained how the next phase of collaboration will be both contextual and fully integratable, enabling collaborative capabilities within any environment and process. For the past year, Lotus Software from IBM has been on the fast track to integrate all their offerings into Web services applications. Due to Lotus Software's long-standing tradition of using open Internet standards as the foundation for product interoperability, and with such recent introductions as the Lotus Web Services Enablement Kit, developers are now able to benefit from the enhanced software portfolio to help easily integrate collaboration, knowledge discovery, and e-learning. This further standardization on J2EE addresses customers' desire to leverage and extend the power of their IBM Lotus Domino investments while at the same time helping to achieve the goal of ultimate integration.

The move to a J2EE standard is a natural evolution, allowing the opportunity to unleash Domino capabilities virtually anytime, anywhere, and to anyone in a mix and match environment. The benefits to customers, developers, business partners, IT professionals, and others are expected to be enormous, including increased flexibility, dynamic adaptability, and diminished costs of both interoperability and solution total cost of ownership.

Zollar's keynote continued with a commitment to the "richness of the desktop" as he articulated the advantages for Lotus software that have come from being a part of the IBM Software Group. In particular, Lotus software now has access to an incomparable array of technology and research. Furthermore, in an increasingly modular environment, Lotus software and the other IBM Software brands are able to pull together the building blocks for compelling solutions that address vital customers needs, with particular emphasis on their unique areas of competence.

Zollar also announced strong momentum for key enterprise Lotus software offerings. For example results from IDC stated IBM Lotus Domino/Notes products are the leading providers of integrated collaborative environments based on having 50 percent of revenues and 39 percent of total users worldwide in 2001. Additionally, according to a July 2001 study from IDC, IBM Lotus Sametime is the revenue leader in the conferencing applications market based on having 33% of worldwide revenues in 2002.
