IBM has announced LotusLive iNotes, a new email service that delivers the benefits of cloud computing with a focus on reliability, privacy and security, to millions of mainstream business users starting at $3 per user, per month.

The new IBM LotusLive iNotes cloud service allows overburdened IT departments to take advantage of IBM's leadership in enterprise collaboration for a range of on- or off-premise messaging capabilities, including mail that works with Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange or operate as a standalone solution to reduce overall IT costs and complexity. It is quick and simple to deploy, making it well-suited for companies of all sizes.

LotusLive iNotes is designed for companies that want to confidently move some or all of their email to the cloud by working with an enterprise leader in collaboration software that is used by more than half of global Fortune 100 companies. In fact, the LotusLive cloud mail platform supporting this service already has more than 18 million email accounts under management. With decades of experience serving the business market, IBM's products include Lotus Notes, one of the world's most widely used email programs.

The new IBM cloud service can accommodate gradual or dramatic migrations to the cloud, while also supporting a client's existing on-premise collaboration system. It is also ideal for employee segments of large enterprises which do not require all the capabilities of full-featured email and collaboration software, or for employees that currently have no access to company email.

LotusLive iNotes is equally well-suited for small- and medium-sized businesses, many of whom have discovered the convenience and savings of free or low-cost Web-based email services but have grown weary of service outages, distracting advertisements or security and privacy concerns that can impact employee productivity and confidence. While these companies realize they need business-grade email, many do not have the budget or in-house technical resources to deploy an on-premise solution.

"Email and other collaboration services are the right entry point for many companies to realize the promise of cloud computing, but only if clients feel confident they're getting business-grade service from a trusted leader in enterprise services," said Bob Picciano, General Manager, IBM Lotus Software.

Nokia needed a low-cost, scalable and multi-lingual mobile cloud mail solution for their worldwide customer base. Competition in the mobile market is escalating and services like affordable cloud mail can make the difference in the selection of a device, especially in emerging markets where personal computers may not be available. In fact, people can get their first email address and manage their accounts right on many Nokia models without a PC at all.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
