IBM released this week the iPad version of Lotus Notes Traveler, featuring two-way encrypted synchronization of e-mail, calendar and contacts with IBM Lotus Domino servers. The app also features per-message e-mail encryption.
IBM is betting on wide enterprise adoption of the iPad. The company's press release quotes John Roling, IT director at IBM client and business partner Czarnowski, saying he can see the iPad taking the place of the laptop for executives.
According to the press release, "Several organizations in a wide variety of industries globally have begun using Lotus Software on the iPad."
As we've reported, many enterprises are supporting the iPad, so IBM's strong and early support for the device could be a good play for the company, which is struggling to gain mindshare in a market dominated by Microsoft Exchange (which the iPad supports natively).
Lotus Notes Traveler is also available for BlackBerry, iPhone, Symbian, and Windows Mobile. IBM announced an Android version of Lotus Notes Traveler in January, but it is not yet available.
