A great opportunity to learn about real-time communications and to test drive a superior solution. 

The accelerating pace of doing business is driving an increasing sense of urgency in corporate communications. When real-time end-user delivery is a priority, email is no longer fast enough. As a result, corporations are turning to Instant Messaging (IM) applications for real-time solutions to challenges associated with employee efficiency and workgroup interaction. According to leading research firms, the benefits of IM will continue to fuel an evolution to markets beyond the consumer realm. International Data Corporation (IDC), for example, forecasts that the number of worldwide IM corporate users will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 140 percent - from 5.5 million in 2000 to more than 180 million in 2004. In addition, a recent Gartner Group report predicts that by 2003, employees at 90 percent of big companies will be using IM in the workplace.
