Thomson Reuters has launched Reuters Messaging Interchange, which it claims for the first time allows Enterprise Instant Messaging users to connect and communicate with colleagues and counterparts by using one link - regardless of corporate or technology boundaries, as with email or telephone interaction.
RM Interchange is a global instant messaging hub connects Thomson Reuters RM with the leading EIM systems - Cisco's Jabber XCP, IBM Lotus' Sametime and Microsoft's LCS/OCS. Users of these systems, the largest and most influential in the EIM space, can now connect with over 5,000 external organisations and add their business contacts to a global external community.
Thomson Reuters says that, unlike existing federation gateways, RM Interchange is the first to enable businesses worldwide to federate without the need to establish individual links between them, saving time for an organisation's IT department. With the RM Interchange service, businesses can potentially reach a multitude of other companies over IM with a single link.
