In­te­grasi Erat Brings Zim­bra to Malaysia and Brunei Mar­ket

Part­ner­ship Brings One of the Best Col­lab­o­ra­tion So­lu­tions to Lo­cal Shores

HWM (Malaysia) - - REPORT -

In an event in Pu­tra­jaya re­cently, In­te­grasi Erat Sdn Bhd an­nounced a part­ner­ship to pro­vide Zim­bra prod­ucts to cor­po­rate and govern­ment sec­tors in Malaysia and Brunei.

Orig­i­nally de­vel­oped by Zim­bra Inc and first re­leased in 2005, Zim­bra Col­lab­o­ra­tion is an open source mes­sag­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tion so­lu­tion that in­cludes email, ad­dress book, cal­en­dar, file-shar­ing, and tasks. It is trusted by more than 5,000 com­pa­nies and pub­lic sec­tor cus­tomers, and over 100 mil­lion end-users, in over 140 coun­tries.

The com­pany was later pur­chased by Ya­hoo! in Septem­ber 2007. It was then sold to VMware on Jan­uary 12, 2010 and sold again to Tel­li­gent Sys­tems in 2004.

Ac­cord­ing to Zim­bra’s Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer Rob Howard, who was also the founder of Tel­li­gent Sys­tems, Zim­bra Col­lab­o­ra­tion is cur­rently in ver­sion 8.0.7 and has a clear de­vel­op­ment path that will bring more ad­vanced fea­tures to the al­ready ex­ten­sive col­lab­o­ra­tion so­lu­tion. This in­cludes HTML5 Mo­bile Web Cal­en­dar, HTML5 Off­line Client, File Sync to De­vices, In­stant Mes­sag­ing and more.

Howard said that in the fu­ture, com­pa­nies could own their own could, so­cial net­work, in­stant mes­sag­ing, e-mail, and other col­lab­o­ra­tion tools of their own with­out the need to rely on a re­mote, ex­ter­nal third-party ser­vice provider.

These tools will still work with ex­ist­ing, more open ser­vices in a syn­ergy. How­ever, com­pa­nies and govern­ment sec­tors will have full con­trol, cross in­te­gra­tion, and have ac­cess to com­pre­hen­sive an­a­lyt­i­cal data that would greatly en­hance their un­der­stand­ing of cus­tomers and im­prove their work­flow.

Zim­bra’s Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer Rob Howard shows off Zim­bra Col­lab­o­ra­tion’s high-level re­lease time­line.
