A lot of Web 2.0 technologies are based on the idea of collaboration.We have delivered blogging support through our workplace products. We havepartners that have both wikis and blogs for Notes and Domino in the market.We are going to see more things like wikis and blogs that will make iteasier for ISVs and partners to build new solutions based on emerging technologies.and on competition....We think thereis a major marketing push from Microsoft against Lotus Notes, which isjust competitive marketing. I think Microsoft has been declaring the deathof Lotus Notes for the last four years. It is a competitive marketplaceand the two major competitors are going to compete vigorously. We believethat we have a better value proposition and provide the most scalable andsecure messaging solution in the market--and that is what we are goingto focus on. Competition is fun, but the real test lies in giving valueto the customer. Link:Express Computer India: "There is a new world emerging in the collaborationmarket, one that is born on the Web">
