As many of you will be aware, IBM announced Lotus BlueHouse at Lotusphere 2008, their new midmarket-directed SaaS hosted collaboration solution.
Since then I have been following the progress of the BlueHouse closely, and was delighted to be invited to take part in the “high-touch” beta programme over the past couple of months. Since then, I have moved a significant portion of my company’s collaborative interactions onto the platform, including sharing documents and folders, running webconferences and much more. It really is coming on very nicely indeed.
Back in June IBM announced that the beta version of BlueHouse was now open to all US-based organisations that wished to try it out, and I am pleased to pass on that this has now been extended to UK-based companies as well. So if you are over this side of the pond and interested to experience what BlueHouse has to offer, then get over to the website and request access.
In the meantime, the BlueHouse team are running a series of webinars covering the offering in a lot more detail. The first one is coming up TOMORROW, Wednesday 16th July, so if you are interested, it would be well worth making the time to attend. It’s a great solution, with huge potential, so I do recommend you get onboard ASAP.
