IBM set to roll Notes hosting service

The module lets users link and synchronize information between Notes and iEnterprises's iExtensions CRM for Lotus Notes, and extend data to mobile devices.
"We are talking about being able to decompose a set of functions like unified communications or Lotus Connections and put them in the context of business applications as opposed to just e-mail or calendar applications," said Picciano.
IBM is doing similar integration with SAP around something called Project Atlantic, which is an integration of Notes with SAP Business Suite.
IBM is also working on a set of hosted business application services code-named Bluehouse that will factor into integrating applications and social networking tools.
IBM says the technological underpinnings of these integrations will tap into Web services technologies such as REST and Web 2.0 techniques such as mashups, feeds and widgets.
iEnterprises is expected to ship the Social Networking for CRM Module next month.
