Small business is still big business. Every company needs the ability to do e-mail, create, share and centrally manage documents and files and ensure that all their information is backed up and protected. But no one wants the hassle or expense of dealing with complex IT systems. Lotus Foundations is a family of software appliances that provide the essential software businesses need to focus on running the business, not managing computer systems.
