2018. IBM sold Lotus Notes/Domino, Websphere Portal and other software to HCL

IBM is selling its legendary enterprise collaboration software Lotus Notes to Indian firm HCL for $1.8 billion. These products were a big part of IBM’s enterprise business for a long time, but last year Big Blue began to pull away, selling the development part to HCL, while maintaining control of sales and marketing. With the development of the platform out of its control, and in need of cash after spending $34 billion for Red Hat, perhaps IBM simply decided it no longer made sense to keep any part of this in-house. As for HCL, it sees an opportunity to continue to build the Notes/Domino business, and it’s seizing it with this purchase. HCL is far more interested in Notes/Domino than IBM has been for a decade. They are investing heavily, trying to rejuvenate the brand. Notes and Domino are still in use in many corners of the enterprise, and this is especially true in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). This move makes sense for IBM, which is moving in a different direction as it develops its cloud business. The Red Hat acquisition in October, in particular, shows that the company wants to embrace private and hybrid cloud deployments, and older software like Lotus Notes and Domino don’t really play a role in that world.

2005. IBM beefs up WebSphere for integration

IBM will bulk up the standards-based integration tools in the next version of its WebSphere server software, reflecting the consistently strong demand among corporate customers for software to glue disparate systems together. The next edition of WebSphere will add support for the latest Web services communications protocols and build on the machine-to-machine messaging software the company recently introduced, said Robert LeBlanc, general manager of IBM's application and integration middleware division. IBM is also looking to introduce versions of WebSphere for specialized purposes, LeBlanc said. The company already has a WebSphere application server designed for radio frequency identification (RFID) applications, and a "pervasive" edition serving up data to embedded and handheld computing devices.

2003. IBM eyes modular WebSphere

IBM presented revamped edition of its WebSphere Java server product line that the company says will improve the integration of components within its software portfolio. Big Blue is creating a "modular architecture" for its WebSphere Java application server, which will allow customers to combine IBM software products more easily with WebSphere. The architecture will debut as part of a product--code-named Vela and expected to be called WebSphere 6 - that will be released in the second half of next year, according to an IBM representative. The WebSphere application server is used to run custom-written business applications. Creating a more modular software architecture for its entire software line has long been a key goal for IBM's Software Group. The company is adopting Java and Web services standards to serve as the common software foundation and glue to link its products together.
