IBM brings cloud e-mail service

By : |October 6, 2009 0

ARMONK, USA: IBM announced LotusLive iNotes, a new email service that delivers the benefits of cloud computing with a focus on reliability, privacy and security, to business users starting at $3 per user, per month.

The new IBM LotusLive iNotes cloud service allows overburdened IT departments to take advantage of IBM’s leadership in enterprise collaboration for a range of on- or off-premise messaging capabilities, including mail that works with Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange or operates as a standalone solution to reduce overall IT costs and complexity. It is quick and simple to deploy, making it well-suited for companies of all sizes.

The new IBM cloud service can accommodate gradual or dramatic migrations to the cloud, while also supporting a client’s existing on-premise collaboration system. It is also ideal for employee segments of large enterprises which do not require all the capabilities of full-featured email and collaboration software, or for employees that currently have no access to company email.

LotusLive iNotes is equally well-suited for small- and medium-sized businesses, many of whom have discovered the convenience and savings of free or low-cost web-based email services but have grown weary of service outages, distracting advertisements or security and privacy concerns that can impact employee productivity and confidence.

Bob Picciano, GM, IBM Lotus Software, said: "Email and other collaboration services are the right entry point for many companies to realize the promise of cloud computing, but only if clients feel confident they’re getting business-grade service from a trusted leader in enterprise services."

LotusLive iNotes enables business users to:
* Send and receive emails in a secure environment anytime from a web browser;
* Work off-line at any time;
* Automatically receive new mail on mobile devices;
* Use a personal calendar to organize their professional and personal lives, all in one convenient place in the cloud;
* Distribute a company calendar to all employees to keep everyone up-to-date on company events and meetings;
* Keep track of personal contacts and access the corporate directory and distribution lists;
* Safeguard their inboxes with powerful anti-spam and virus protection that can be individually customized.
