IBM Eyes SMBs With ‘Foundations’ Servers

Posted: January 22, 2008 in Tech

IBM announced plans for a software portfolio expansion geared to the needs of millions of companies from 5 to 500 employees that want to focus on growing their businesses instead of running their office systems.

IBM Lotus Foundations is a future line of small business software servers, installed on-premise, and is expected to be offered primarily through IBM Business Partners.

In addition, IBM announced a managed beta of a web-delivered service codenamed “Bluehouse.” “Bluehouse” provides extranet services for small-and- medium sized companies to securely collaborate beyond their organizational boundaries.

Also, IBM and SAP AG announced plans to deliver their first joint software product codenamed “Atlantic” that will integrate IBM Lotus Notes software with SAP Business Suite.
