Why IBM Lotus Loves Microsoft.

Did I get your attention??  Hmmmm… you are wondering how this is possible?

IBM Lotus is very focused on integration in your environment.  We do not believe that you should be locked down with a technology, that you should be able to blend the technologies to create the best work space for your end users.  Lotus specifically leaves the door open for you to integrate the technologies that you need.  Each of our technologies offer complimentary touch points into and with the Microsoft environments to provide the best capabilities.  See for yourself.   Interested in learning more?  Please feel free to contact me @ holli_konig@us.ibm.com

Here are some great links to show you how! :))
