"IBM Lotus Quickr will provide ready-to-use team places where team members -- inside or outside the firewall -- can share information and collaborate on projects online.
[...] Users can access content in Lotus Quickr right from their familiar Microsoft Windows desktop. They simply drag documents from their C-drive folders to personal or shared Lotus Quickr places. Or, they can save documents to Lotus Quickr folders directly from the application they are using."
"Lotus Connections has five Web 2.0-based components -- Activities, Communities, Dogear, Profiles and Blogs -- that help business people quickly connect and build new relationships based on their individual needs.
[...] Lotus Connections integrates across the Lotus portfolio, combining the strength of the industry's leading real-time, messaging and portal capabilities with the power of social software. For example, with Lotus Notes version 8 and Lotus Connections, customers will be able to access Activities on the side bar from their Lotus Notes inbox and drag and drop email messages directly into an activity. Websphere Portal and Lotus Connections customers can leverage the light weight portlets to display new Dogear bookmarks, recent blogs entries and search Profiles to locate an expert.
[...] Lotus Connections also integrates with Microsoft Active Directories. With support for open standards such as ATOM and REST, Lotus Connections makes it easy for enterprises to integrate social software into their existing IT infrastructures and their day-to-day tools."
