IBM plans to launch in the second half of this year an API (application programming interface) for linking the Lotus Sametime enterprise instant messaging product to VOIP (voice over Internet Protocol) platforms, mobile phones and traditional office telephony systems.

The API is being used currently by a small number of partners who are working on early voice applications for Sametime, and IBM expects to make the API generally available to developers in 2005's third or fourth quarter, said Ken Bisconti, vice president of IBM Workplace products.
