Description

       IBM Lotus Sametime Unyte Meeting 8.2 is a Web conferencing solution based on the software
       as a service business model. Software as a service is the delivery of application functionality
       via a subscription model over the Internet. You do not take ownership of the software but rather
       subscribe to a total solution that is delivered remotely. Software as a service eliminates the need
       for you to own and maintain the IT infrastructure. With the software as a service model, you do
       not purchase a software license and thus you are not responsible for upgrades or maintenance
       of the software application. The service provider has responsibility for the infrastructure and
       maintaining the service.

       The Lotus Sametime Unyte Meeting service is an Internet-delivered Web conferencing service
       requiring you to only have a browser and Internet connection to participate in Web conferences
       and Events.

       Features include:

       • Presentation, application, and desktop sharing
       • SSL encryption
       • Microsoft Outlook and IBM Lotus Notes® calendar integration
       • Multiple presenters
       • Polling and hand raising
       • Chat and annotation
       • Recording and playback
       • Remote control
       • Roster controls
       • Question and answer moderator

       The Web Events service provides companies the capability to conduct Web conferences with
       up a large number of attendees. The service offers each company a customized registration
       Web page and Web site for attendees to view information about the upcoming event prior to
       registration. Companies can also take advantage of additional features like manual or automatic
       management of attendee approvals, setting limits on the number of attendees that can sign up
       for an event, and customizable e-mails for pre-communications and post-communications with
       attendees. The newly enhanced

       What makes Lotus Sametime Unyte Meeting different from other Web conferencing solutions?

IBM Electronic Services

       IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve
       higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive,

IBM Europe, Middle East, and Africa Software              IBM is a registered trademark of International Business Machines Corporation   4
Announcement ZP08-0522
       no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These
       services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster
       problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but
       complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

       The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry
       points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables
       you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

       The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It
       monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined
       timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early
       knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result
       in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the
       Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer
       your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for
       problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
