Sametime is the industry’s leading Unified Communications and Collarboration solution. Sametime incorporates presence awareness, instant messaging, telephony, Web conferences, and audio/video into an integrated, secure environment. In mid-2008, Sametime will evolve to include additional, ground-breaking functionality for real-time personal, team, and community collaboration.
Lotus Sametime Advanced software will help make it easy to find information and share expertise, engage in ongoing conversations, instantly share your desktop and automatically store and reuse location information.
For example, planned capabilities include dedicated chat rooms that persist as long as needed, in which people can participate in a discussion, see what's been discussed in their absence, and optionally be alerted when a keyword of interest is in discussion.

Planned capabilities also include "Skilltap," which let you broadcast questions and get answers from experts -- even from people you don't know.
