Avoiding The Wave
The Official Google Blog has announced that the Google Wave is set to roll out to a larger audience tomorrow.
Over 100K invitations are expected to go out to developers, early users, and select customers of Google Apps to try out the full preview of Google Wave.
I’m not sure if I was on the list or not (I sign up for all kinds of betas), but I’m certainly interested to hear A) how many bugs and kinks have been worked out since the alpha version and B) whether or not Google Wave is going to save the planet.
Meanwhile, back at the IBM Collaboration ranch, IBM Lotus has been gaining ground on the collaboration front through the delivery and adoption of real products our customers can use today.
In fact, in the first half of 2009, IBM logged thousands of new customers using its Lotus collaboration tools, bringing the total to 15,421 companies that have chosen IBM over Microsoft since 2008.
IBM momentum in the collaboration space is being driven by the continued success of Lotus Notes and Domino against Microsoft Exchange; Lotus Connections and Quickr against Microsoft Sharepoint; and the millions of businesses and individuals that are using Lotus Symphony.
