IBM Lotusphere 2010 showcase Canadian developers

by Rob Lewis

Kathleen Lau of ComputerWorld Canada was at the IBM Lotusphere 2010 conference in Orlando last week and had a chance to tour the product showcase and catch up with a number of Canadian companies that were exhibiting.

Toronto-based Extracomm Inc. offers auditing and compliance tools for the Lotus Notes/Domino platform. IBM itself announced earlier this week several upcoming enhancements to Lotus Notes in the second half of 2010 including audit capabilities, social analytics and additional mobile support.

IBM also said it is opening its LotusLive platform, the hosted version of its Lotus software, to more partners. Marc Gingras, CEO & founder with Tungle Corp., a Montreal-based company that builds meeting scheduling tools for Lotus Notes, said making LotusLive more accessible to the development community is a great move on IBM’s part.

Also at the product showcase was Waterloo-based Research In Motion Ltd., which that week announced a reseller agreement with IBM to sell its new BlackBerry client versions of Lotus Quickr and Lotus Connections.

Check out Lau's video interviews with these three companies here.
