Mobility and unified communications are two of the biggest business drivers in the lives of 21st century workers. Corporate users depend on their smartphones to keep them connected to colleagues, customers and business partners regardless of location. Few, if any, business users today could conceive of life without their mobile phone.

With the pace of mobile technology innovation accelerating, the industry is moving beyond using smartphones just to deliver baseline access to email, voicemail and text messaging. Spurred by the demand for ubiquitous connectivity, businesses are eagerly embracing a unified communications (UC) model that melds mobility with a new class of collaborative applications, enabling remote, traveling and telecommuting workers to have their desktops at their fingertips—literally.

Research In Motion's (RIM) BlackBerry® smartphone, the undisputed market leader in the smartphone device arena, and IBM® Lotus®, the top developer of enterprise collaborative applications, are pioneers in this fast-emerging mobile UC arena. This IT Briefing discusses how advanced collaboration applications from IBM Lotus and BlackBerry smartphones from RIM offer state-of-the-art technology and business advantages to corporate users.
