Weberon's Share Product
-- Hosted and Administered Sametime Services
Reproduced from ePro
Several issues back, I wrote about the benefits of IBM Software's
Sametime as secure chat and shared meeting product as compared
to the many public offerings (AOL IM, Yahoo, MSN Messenger, IRC,
etc.). Many companies have adopted the product and have had tremendous
success. Institutions have had significant money savings with
reduced travel costs and more productive meetings as compared
to, say, only using a conference call. Sametime offers users the
ability to securely hold a meeting and share presentations and
chat with users across town or around the world.
Some readers asked me if there were any
companies that provide a hosted or managed solution for Sametime.
Well there are a few, and one such company is Weberon, which offers
a Sametime Share product. Weberon's product takes many of the
headaches out of deploying a managed Sametime environment in your
Weberon's Share Appliance offers a secure
and scalable solution based on Sametime. It includes what you
would expect from a standard Sametime installation including:
- Presence Awareness
Be aware of who is online.
Embed online awareness into business applications.
- Converse Securely
Chat securely with one or many people who are online.
This includes the ability to upgrade a chat session to an instant
Web- conference with audio and video.
Share application and/or documents with other users.
Let others use your applications or edit your documents.
Take control of remote computers.
- Record e-meetings
People not able to attend an e-meeting can replay the recording
What separates the Share product from
a standard Sametime installation is a hosted role-based portal
for controlled deployment and ease of administration. The appliance
also performs a 'CheckPC' step which ensures the participants'
PCs are capable of running the Sametime client before attending
a meeting. The appliance works in conjunction with your existing
corporate security products and procedures.
In addition, the Share appliance integrates
with your corporate directory such as Microsoft Exchange, Active
Directory, or Domino. The product can be tailored to appear seamlessly
within your company so users do not realize it is a third-party
