"Which major vendor will be the first to embed blogging capabilities into its enterprise collaboration toolset, IBM or Microsoft? It seems the answer may well be Big Blue. This is decoupled innovation; small things loosely joined, that's the "getting things done" kind of innovation."

With a clearer product roadmap, Governor argues that IBM's "evolutionary" approach, although slow, is a step ahead of Microsoft's.
