Bangalore: IBM has released a suite of free software tools for creating and sharing documents, spreadsheets and presentations here Wednesday.

Multiple users from business, academic, government and consumer segments can download the enterprise-grade software from the company's website (www.ibm.com) under "Lotus Symphony", according a statement released by IBM India.

"The software tools can be used to extend a business process or custom application to create dynamic composite applications. The tools, which support Windows and Linux desktops, are designed to handle majority of office productivity tasks," the statement said.

The software also supports multiple file formats, including Microsoft Office and open document format. It can also output content in the PDF format.

"We are committed to opening office desktop productivity applications just as we helped open enterprise computing with Linux," IBM India country manager for Lotus Chetan Yardi said.

Last week, Big Blue IBM announced its membership in OpenOffice.org and intent to make important technical and resource contributions.

By teaming with the developers' community to accelerate the rate of innovation in the office productivity software marketplace, Big Blue plans to deliver higher value to users of its products and services.

The Lotus Symphony is in line with the company's strategy to help users find new ways to work together. The latest software integrates editor functionality into everyday desktop and business applications.

Businesses can integrate Lotus tools into their custom applications and connect to myriad data sources to create composite applications.
