Just in case you haven't spotted this, the details for the Collaboration Accelerator have now been released. As far as I am aware, the product itself should be available within the next week or so...
IBM Collaboration Accelerator
Communication is a powerful tool. Empowering people to collaborate live with the simple click of a mouse and combining it with accurate information access can help improve response times, increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve customer service. This accelerator for IBM WebSphere® Portal helps bring portal-based applications to life. With this accelerator WebSphere Portal becomes an interactive platform, providing people with more effective and cost-efficient ways of accessing information, sharing ideas, communicating and working... together.
The Accelerator package includes specific elements from the following components - Lotus Sametime, Lotus Quickr, Lotus Connections and Websphere Portal. In my position as a consultant that works with both Portal and Lotus technologies, this Accelerator is incredibly important as there is real value to be leveraged from integrating existing Portal business applications with the features and benefits of Quickr, Sametime and Connections. Anything that IBM can do to make that integration process (and purchasing process) easier is sure to benefit the customer.
