I am looking at different technologies to address the constant and 
ever-changing instant messenger issue.

I simply identify the server(s) and block them out-right.  What with
HTTP tunneling, there's really no other way.

Management has stated that IM of some kind is required for certain 
employees who are separated by a continent to save on long-distance 
phone usage until VoIP can be fully realized/utilized.

Run your own Jabber server.  Problem solved.
