What is IBM Workplace?

Maybe like me you've been working for some years with IBM Lotus collaboration products (Notes, Domino and others), and maybe also you're still trying to comprehend IBM's "Workplace" strategy.

I heartily recommend you take a peek at a new IBM Redbook that's just come out: Deploying IBM Workplace Collaboration Services on the IBM iSeries Server

Forget the fact that it's an iSeries-focused book (coming from the IBM development lab in Rochester, Minnesota). There's a nice overview in the first chapter that concisely describes:
  • What is IBM Workplace
  • What is IBM Workplace Collaboration Services
  • Workplace Collaboration Services 2.5 products
  • What is IBM Workplace Services Express
And if you're unfamiliar with the outstanding IBM iSeries architecture, there's a nice short overview of this too, including reasons for choosing the i5/OS operating system as a superior platform for the Workplace products. (Disclosure: I'm heavily biased, and consider Domino running on the iSeries as "the best of all possible worlds".)
