Please Welcome A New Voice To The Lotus Notes Community

Hi All...I hope everyone is well. I'd love to say that I've been heads down working on a super secret project that will revolutionize Notes UI development for years to come but...yeah...not so much. I do have a whole treasure trove of ideas in my brainstorming notebook, though, and with any luck, I'll be completely refreshed after my upcoming, long-awaited (and needed) vacation and will dive into developing these brilliant gems into working prototypes to share with all of you.

In the meantime, I wanted to point you to a new blog and introduce a new member of the community. Dan Lynch has been working with Lotus Notes and Domino since the 3.x days and is currently the Team Lead for Enterprise Messaging at one of my customers. They just so happen to have recently completed one of the competitive battles that Ed was talking about yesterday.  Yes... Lotus Notes won out in the end (woot...we rock!  ;-) and Dan was an instrumental member of the team doing the evaluation between the Lotus and Microsoft collaboration platforms.

Dan has a lot of great insight into the "Microsoft threat" and the necessary components to evaluate when going through such a process.  He also has years of experience that he can share regarding the Notes and Domino platform, and I look forward to reading his coming posts.  For now, he has started with a great kick off article discussing the advantages that Lotus Domino brings to the table when you are faced with an e-discovery process. 

Please welcome Dan to the Notes blogging community and check out his Enterprise Messaging Trenches Blog (hosted by the fine folks at Bleed Yellow).

Welcome, Dan...Glad to have you here!

Hi Dan. I hear things are finally moving forward at SW with regards to Lotus Notes. At least from a technical standpoint!

Since moving to AZ, I find it disappointing and frustrating the few companies that do use LN here are trying to find ways to move to other systems (mostly microsoft).

Do they not know a good thing when they have it? Have they not seen what v6, v7 or even v8 can offer?

I know, money is always an issue. However, mgmt needs to think of the money they need to spend to move all their information from Lotus Notes into the 3 or 4 different systems that are needed to replace it.

I'll keep an eye out for more postings.
