"CIOs, for whom buying portals has become a top priority, will be able to get for free what IBM says will be 80 percent of the Office functionality most people use, said one channel source familiar with the plan. "IBM can now say, 'Look, you can pay for half the portal with what you'll save in Office,' " the source said."
