winner of the IBM Lotus Award for Enabling Innovation through Social
Collaboration in 2011 and the IBM Lotus Award for Best Total Lotus Software

advancements to deliver a truly social project experience without sacrificing
essential project management practices and rigor.

a familiar social networking paradigm similar to Facebook directly with core
business processes. ProjExec 5.0 is being highlighted at Lotusphere 2011 at
pedestals 609-610 in the Product Showcase exhibition hall.

discipline of project management," said Alex Homsi, President and CEO, Trilog
Group. "Rather, we're empowering people by managing the "social side" of
projects and making the experience more enjoyable. Project Wall does just that.
