Microsoft is challenging Lotus Development?s dominance in the workgroup market by adding further collaboration capabilities to its Exchange server and Outlook client.
The next major version of Exchange, to be named Platinum, will ship with an upgraded version of Outlook 2000, according to sources close to the company. Platinum is expected to be available from the third quarter of 1999.
The server and the client will both come with the same application programming interface for Microsoft?s Collaborative Data Objects (CDOs), which let developers build applications with features such as Web based forms and document routing.
Whereas most of the CDOs were previously only available in Exchange, allowing them on the client as well will allow developers to build more collaborative features in client based applications.
