LAWSON LINKS ERP APPS TO LOTUS NOTES.
Lawson Software Inc has announced the integration of its Insight
Business Management System with Lotus Development Corp's Notes and
Domino groupware. The company claims that the enterprise resource
planning software is the first to tightly integrate with the Notes
client - including the upcoming release 5 - and hopes that this will
help it gain a larger market share in the ERP sector. A spokesperson for
Lotus said that the firm has been working to integrate the Notes/Domino
line with various ERP vendors' products - pointing to previously
announced tie-ups with SAP, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards and Oracle, and
expects a slew of ERP vendors to announce the integration of their
products with R5 in Orlando, Florida this week. The Lawson Insight
software is available for the NT, Unix and AS/400 platforms.
