Skype voice and video calling are to be integrated into IBM’s new suite of cloud services, LotusLive.

LotusLive enables business and individuals to collaborate online, making inter-business co-operation easier and more efficient.

Skype functionality on LotusLive will provide seamless, real-time communication via video or voice link.

“We recognize that communications is an integral component of collaboration in an Internet-enabled world and that many small businesses have already adopted Skype,” said Sean Polley, vice president of online collaboration at IBM Lotus.

“This integration will simplify and improve the way businesses interact with their customers and partners.”

LotusLive currently offers two services: Meetings, and Events.

Meetings integrates audio and video conferencing at the cost of $48 to $99 per month depending on participant numbers.

Events helps users manage and host online conferences and webinars. Events costs $99 per month, or 30 cents per minute per guest.

Two other services, Notes and Engage, are yet to be launched.
