Morsom liten historie fra nettet…


Med jevne mellomrom får jeg inn små pussige og morsomme historier fra mine leser. Denne kom inn på skjermen min i dag. En søt liten historie som min leser hadde funnet på en blogg et sted ute i verden.

Large customer running Notes 5. Accenture and Microsoft come in and say “Look, this is rubbish, migrate the mail to exchange, and within 2 years get the apps from Notes into dot-net”.

Customer says to IBM “Will this work?”. IBM calls a meeting with the customer – Accenture guy turns up.

IBM guy says to the Accenture guy:

– Turn your PC around.

He has to. On his Accenture Standard Build laptop – Lotus Notes.

– When did Accenture start migrating from Notes?

– 2001.

– How many Notes apps do you still have?

– 600.

– Do you have to request an Exchange Mailbox using a Notes App.?

– Yes.

Result: Accenture booted out, Notes environment upgraded, customer happy. Saved a bunch of money.
