Lotus Sametime named Frost and Sullivan North American Enterprise Product of the Year

As those of you who attended Lotusphere know, we started the year celebrating the 10th anniversary of Lotus Sametime.  (And if you were lucky, you might have even gotten some cake.)

And what better way than to continue the celebration with yet another award.  Following on the heels of the Network World Best of the Tests award announced the other week, Lotus Sametime was named the Frost and Sullivan North American Enterprise Product of the Year.

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Product of the Year is presented to the company that demonstrates excellence in new product development and launch within its industry. Products are assessed based on their competitive advantage, significance to the marketplace and uniqueness of features and capabilities.

"IBM Lotus came out swinging with its Sametime unified communications and collaboration product suite," said Melanie Turek, Frost & Sullivan. "One of the key things that makes Sametime standout from competitors is that it supports multi-vendor environments, which are the norm for most mid- and large-size organizations today."
