I’ve blogged previously about IBM software getting snappier names (e.g., Sametime->”Instant Messaging and Web Conferencing”->Sametime). Looks like this philosophy is slowly spreading. For example, take a look at this name evolution:
- Workplace Client Technology Micro Edition, Enterprise Offering
- Workplace Managed Client for WebSphere
- WebSphere Everyplace Deployment for Windows and Linux
- Lotus Expeditor
It also shows a renewed emphasis on the Lotus brand, a promising sign.
