      Think before trying to fetch bag-holders, for they may actually read your link:

      "IBM/Lotus: IBM has products that cover all of the functionality of a smart enterprise suite. Much of it originated from Lotus but is increasingly integrated with IBM's WebSphere infrastructure: Domino.Doc for repository management, Sametime and QuickPlace for synchronous and asynchronous collaboration, Discovery Server for information retrieval, taxonomy creation and expertise management, LearningSpace for e-learning, and Lotus Workflow. IBM is now gathering much of this functionality together with its portal framework under the umbrella of WebSphere Portal (see "IBM's WebSphere Portal Offers Wide-Ranging Functionality," P-16-2214). This fulfills much of the scope of smart enterprise suites with a strong foundation for further integration. The full technical integration requires the conversion of the Domino platform to run on WebSphere Application Server and the delivery of Web services interfaces. Nevertheless, WebSphere Portal today comes closest to a smart enterprise suite."

      Have a spork, and a bag.

      • You know how I hate fairness, but here is the divine info pasted from the link in all its unedited glory from gartner. Note to pumper - the article is abuut "smart enterprise" software, not "extened enterprise" software. Nice try, though...

        Leading Vendors for Smart Enterprise Suites

        divine: Only about two years old, divine was assembled explicitly to create what it calls an "extended enterprise" suite of products and services. Still under construction via acquisitions, the framework encompasses collaboration (including MindAlign for instant messaging), knowledge management, Web content management (both Eprise and Open Market) and content syndication (SageMaker), combined with a wide variety of managed services and professional services for integration and development. Today, the extended enterprise framework is largely theoretical, since nearly all of these products are still in their pre-acquisition form. Nevertheless, some of them (e.g., Open Market) are highly regarded in their own right, so even in the absence of ambitious code-level integration plans, the company can provide best-of-breed support for a number of e-workplace functions.

        I loved the part about, "Today, the extended enterprise framework is largely theoretical, since nearly all of these products are still in their pre-acquisition form. " Integration, you ask, cohsgrad?
