IBM announced a couple of days ago that the software and services from IBM will work smarter with the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0. Blackberry users will be able to read documents without any laptop with the help of IBM Symphony word processing software, the new BlackBerry Client for Lotus Sametime instant messaging, and the new native BlackBerry Client for Lotus Connections. The blackberry client for Lotus Sametime collaborates in real time from the desktop computer to the BlackBerry smartphone,that includes instant messaging (IM), presence awareness, contacts, broadcasts, file transfer, click-to-call etc.
The combination of voice-over-IP with presence awareness via IBM Lotus Sametime and corporate network and wireless routing with the BlackBerry Bold smartphone makes the landlines outdated. If instant messages arent fast enough, you can use the click-and -call feature.
Also, LotusLive Meetings a new cloud based software service from IBM will provide the facility for on line meeting if you are blackberry user. You can have audio and Web conferencing with the help of 3G network.
Additionally, BlackBerry Client for Lotus Connections will help HRD departments manage an increasingly mobile workforce through social networks with blogs, activities, communities and tag clouds. Now, employees can form communities adding new contacts at conferences and other meetings while inventorying skills and expertise in the process.
