Starting today you can create, edit and publish documents without worrying about ongoing software licensing and royalty fees.
New IBM Lotus Symphony is word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software you can download and install at no charge – and start using right away to create new documents, edit documents created with Microsoft® Office programs, and publish documents in Adobe® Acrobat® (PDF) format. Lotus Symphony also supports open document format (ODF), so you can integrate documents with applications, business processes and data feeds.
IBM unveiled Symphony alongside an entire suite of next-generation collaboration products at the first-ever Lotus Collaboration Summit in New York City on September 18. Two of these new offerings include IBM Applications on Demand for IBM Lotus Notes®, making Notes 8 available as a service with enterprise-level application hosting; and IBM Lotus Notes Traveller, a mobile client enabling real-time replication of email, attachments, calendar entries, addresses, journal entries and to-dos to mobile devices.
