So on each of the various Brand's forum pages, there could be a shortcut "Software Group Navigator" which links to all of the Brand forum pages: Information Management - Lotus - Rational - Tivoli - WebSphere - Workplace
The bigger picture is that there is more than just forums though. What about downloads, articles, demos, etc.? It just seems a bit redundant to me to divide things up, than have links that basically combine everything again. I have to assume that is why developerWorks has chosen to break things up via the left side navigator. The design is consistent across each topic area, and should enable you to find the products, demos, articles, etc that you are looking for. That is just my guess though, not an official IBM statement!
