Food and beverage giant Coca Cola Amatil (CCA) has dumped IBM’s Lotus Notes in favour of Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Standard Suite(BPOS), in an effort to decrease commercial costs and to integrate collaboration across the company.
Beginning the deployment process in March this year, CCA technology manager, Steven Meek, said there were many factors in its decision making process, but the bottom line was the need to reduce costs and “smooth out” the fragmentation associated with Lotus Notes.
Wondering will a new solution outperform in-house Notes email? And what about converting hundreds probably if not thousands Notes and Domino based applications? Will these apps ever be converted off Notes?
