IBM is set to take on Google with the launch of a corporate email service designed to appeal to users that are...
already familiar with its Lotus products.
The comapany is looking to exploit concerns around Google's reliabilit after its Apps service suffered a high profile outage last month,and the comfort that some customers have in a well established tech brand.
"Some large companies have moved their entire email over to Google Apps so it is happening but it might not be the right approach," one IBM staffer said recently.
