CRN | Breaking News | IBM, Microsoft Chart Collaboration's Course: "David Marshak, an analyst with Patricia Seybold Group, calls the next two years a period of disruption as it pertains to collaboration. Customers, he says, will be making decisions about messaging and portal solutions and platforms, and IBM and Microsoft�and their partners�should look to cash in.
'I don't know yet whose technology [IBM's or Microsoft's] is more disruptive, but customers are going to be forced to do something�at least an upgrade; at most migrating all of their users, mailboxes and logic,' Marshak says. "
Now I am confused - I thought David Marshak was joining IBM/Lotus managing their real-time collaboration products?!?
