LotusLive Notes: IBM’s Hosted E-mail Offering to Compete with Microsoft Exchange Online

IBM has introduced a new hosted e-mail offering “LotusLive Notes,” that it’s pricing at $5 per user per month. IBM is touting the newest addition to its LotusLive family as providing e-mail, calendaring and instant messaging. Other pieces of the LotusLive family of hosted services also provide Web conferencing, social networking and collaboration. The integrated suite of services goes for $10 per user per month.

New capabilities that are part of LotusLive Notes include e-mail retention of content of users’ e-mail messages for later legal discovery; onboarding, data migration and custom mail template services (via IBM Software Services); and support for 21 additional languages.

The onboarding service and free trial options could be a draw, but the relatively small number of partners for LotusLive Notes could hamper the offering, said IDC analyst Robert Mahowald.
