It’s time for Lotusphere 2006 in Orlando this week. That’s where people get together and talk about all things Lotus, I guess. Research in Motion, the makers of BlackBerry, have used that surefire party to unveil the latest version of their BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The venue made sense because v4.1 adds support for IBM Lotus Sametime and IBM Lotus Domino 7, which is a messaging solution. Among other things, the new version lets you view messages on your BlackBerry which are in the Lotus Domino format used in Notes.
There are several other new features included in this new version of RIM’s wireless server software. Included are several new security features and steps to ease administration of the server by multiple users. It also includes BlackBerry MDS Studio visual design tool, which will allow users to easily create their own BlackBerry client applications. Largely, though, this version will be of interest to corporate users of Lotus who want to easily integrate BlackBerry with their existing infrastructure.
