Not all is lost for Lotus

by Volker Weber

Very interesting story about Lotus Connections today:

Bayer MaterialScience (BMS) entscheidet sich für Social Software von IBM. Mit Lotus Connections ermöglicht das Unternehmen seinen Mitarbeitern, noch besser zusammenzuarbeiten und Informationen miteinander zu teilen.

The interesting background is that IBM lost Bayer as a Notes customer last year. The company is busy building a new PWP (Personalized Workplace Program) with Microsoft technologies: Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, Lync 2010, Office 2010, Windows 7. Currently Bayer is still heavily invested in Lotus Notes, which will be replaced by Outlook for messaging and c&s.

By picking Connections as the central place where people look for information, BMS is undercutting one use case for Sharepoint. Very interesting development.
