NearshoreJournal.com Blog New IBM Gmail Cloud Alternative

MIAMI, FL and CORAL GABLES, FL--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - NearshoreJournal.com blog today issued an analysis of IBM's Gmail alternative -- LotusLive iNotes (www.lotuslive.com).

Zagada's posting of this latest high-level, in-depth podcast interview with Sean Poulley, vice president of IBM Cloud Collaboration Services is the 4th in its Cloud Sourcing series.

The interview comes on the heels of IBM's recently announced enterprise collaboration service based on its LotusLive iNotes cloud-based service platform.

Produced by Moodstudio, the podcast interview is conducted by Philip Peters, Zagada's CEO, and is now available at the company's NearshoreJournal.com blog.

Having previously been a part of CrossWorlds -- a US$100 million company -- which IBM acquired -- Sean's tenure at IBM is approaching 15 years and embraces a portfolio of senior roles with the US$100 billion service-leader firm.

Sean shares with Philip some of the key insights and management thinking about IBM's strategic understating and deployment of its Cloud solution. Important highlights include:

--  Cloud computing represents a fundamental platform shift
    
--  Cloud computing should be seen as a disruptive opportunity
    
--  The Cloud represents a new consumption and delivery model
    
--  The Cloud mandates security reliability and Service Level Agreement
    (SLA) fidelity from serious providers, and,
    
--  The Cloud offers a new cost reduction business value and should be
    executives' focus.
    

Listeners will find the podcast relaxed but engaging as Sean shares his breath of experience by consistently dove tailing his responses to Philip's question on the Cloud's business value and IBM's focus on technology to do one thing: "solving customers problems."
