Enterprise instant messaging

Instant messaging got its start as a personal communications tool. It quickly spread to the office under IT's radar, where co-workers downloaded free services, such as AIM, Yahoo and MSN, and found them convenient for exchanging information (and chatting). Now IM has evolved into a useful business productivity and communications tool. An enterprise system helps ensure security and privacy, increases manageability, and its messages cost less than phone calls.

Security was once the main barrier to enterprise IM deployment, but today's suites support full encryption and authenticate against your existing systems. Plus, they typically support a version of directory services.
