Really happy to see these two press releases from IBM Lotus partners this week...
Elguji Software's IdeaJam Wins Coveted Lotusphere 2009 Awards:
Elguji Software announced today that its IdeaJam software application won the prestigious IBM Lotus Chief Technology Officer Innovation and Breakout technology awards, at Lotusphere 2009, while also being named as a finalist for the Best in Showcase award. Taking Lotusphere by storm, Elguji Software's IdeaJam, the industry's first XPages application, proved that it's helping to create a highly engaging and usable "Web 2.0" user experience for its customers.Great to see Bruce, Matt, and Gayle getting some visibility in the market at large -- IdeaJam is a solution that is as appealing to non-Lotus shops as it is to the Notes installed base of customers, and this release should help further that market reach.
