One hundred software houses have signed up to use software from IBM's Workplace initiative, a new client computing model that gives employees a single way to access, share and manage applications and data. 

The company has also launched a workplace resource centre on its DeveloperWorks site to give developers and partners online access to tools and other resources for IBM Workplace technology. 

Workplace, from IBM's Lotus software division, allows businesses to migrate from PC-centric workplaces to the network-managed delivery of employee tools and applications in a roles-based environment.

IBM said the technology allowed companies to centrally manage, provision and deploy business applications and tools across a variety of devices, such as desktop PCs or handheld devices.

"IBM Workplace helps reduce the development costs of building and deploying industry-specific solutions across a wide range of client devices and operating systems," said Scott Hebner, vice-president of software marketing and strategy. 

Companies supporting Workplace include Bowstreet, Hyperion and Adobe, according to IBM.
