Joda, det finnes de som velger å bytte ut løsninger fra Microsoft med IBM Lotus. Både av tekniske årsaker, men også i høy grad av økonomiske grunner.
Så finnes det de som oppgraderer gamle Lotus-løsninger i stedet for å bytte til andre teknologi-plattformer. Og så finnes det de som forblir på plattformen fordi de rett og slett har vært fornøyde i årevis og velger det sikre fremfor det usikre.
Her har du noen sitater fra kunder som har valgt Lotus fremfor f.eks. Microsoft:
“Moving to IBM Lotus Notes and Domino from Microsoft Exchange and Outlook reduced software licensing costs by about 50%.” – Dr. Tariq Marikar, Director, Product Development & CIO, Suntel Ltd.
“We are saving up to US$500 per machine by using Lotus software instead of Microsoft products. Those savings will enable us to make additional IT investments in the future as well as remain a leader in our field.” – Burke Strand, Network Manager, Iowa 80 Group.
“By choosing IBM, we don’t need a full-time IT person running around to make sure our servers are up and working properly.” – Gregers Bisgaard, sales manager, Simi A/S.
“Some small and medium-sized businesses are afraid of IBM – they see it as a huge corporation that doesn’t develop software for smaller companies. Our experience is quite the opposite: Lotus Notes and Domino are designed to deliver everything a small business needs on a single platform.” – Sarianne Reinikkala, Managing Director of Finncontainers.
“Upgrading to IBM Lotus Notes 8.5 has resulted in efficiency that has allowed us to avoid making a huge investment in new hardware.” – Steve Haase, CEO, InsureTrust.
