New Lotus Award Category: Best IBM Lotus Sametime Extension


I wanted to make sure that no one missed the new Lotus (Beacon) Award category being introduced this year:  Best IBM Lotus Sametime Extension.

 If you haven't done so already, go get the Sametime 7.5 SDK and start building those plug-ins!  (Nominations due by Nov. 17th.)

Best IBM Lotus Sametime Extension
This category recognizes a solution that extends the real-time collaboration experience of IBM Lotus Sametime through the plug-in environment provided by Lotus Sametime 7.5. This plug-in environment, which leverages Eclipse technology provides customers and partners with a capability to develop custom solutions and integrate business applications directly into the Sametime instant messaging client; transforming the client into a platform for real time collaboration. Submissions for this category should be plug-ins to the Lotus Sametime 7.5 environment, and will be judged on the business value they return, the extent of integration with other applications or solutions, and the ability to provide new capabilities or enhancements to the end user experience that would not have previously been possible.
