This theme continues to generate a lot of e-mail. This week’s First Thing Monday piece on the need for a layer above Office and Outlook drew a near real-time response from my friend Kathy at Lawson Software. Here it is:

You forgot to mention Lawson Smart Office, a collaborative user environment that combines Lawson enterprise apps, Microsoft Office tools (including bi-directional Excel integration), Microsoft Outlook (manager self-service via Outlook without even logging into the Lawson app), Lawson Business Intelligence, Lawson Process Flow Integrator (workflow), and Microsoft Groove (collaboration) as well as mash-ups with other web 2.0 technologies and more…  All delivered in an integrated canvas leveraging Microsoft WPF.

We’ve had great market reaction to Lawson Smart Office and now have more than 225 clients.
