As best I understand it, Lotus (part of IBM) is working with SIMPLE for 
it's Sametime product. Other parts of IBM use Jabber for professional 
services projects like an emergency response system for the government. 
Companies like IBM are large enough that they sometimes act like many 
companies. :)
