IBM has developed software widgets to provide travel management for LinkedIn users.

As part of the company's Web 2.0 strategy to support the business need of users through social networking, IBM is providing applications for TripIt, the online travel site and the LinkedIn, business network. The applications integrate into Lotus Notes. The widgets link Lotus Notes PC collaboration software with social networking on the web.

"This demonstrates the versatility of Lotus Notes in web collaboration," said Kevin Cavanaugh, vice-president, messaging, IBM Collaboration Software. "Whatever Lotus customers need, there's a widget for that."

The LinkedIn micromashup software for Lotus Notes enables users to stream LinkedIn network updates, people search with one-click, and access to view their LinkedIn Professional profile from within Notes, IBM said

The Tripit application lets users access travel information and itineries direct from Lotus Notes.
