Lotus Notes/Domino – strategic

“Connect, collaborate, innovate” has been our KM team’s tagline – I hesitate to call it a strategy – for the past four or five years and although we’ve been quick to experiment with some of the same social media tools – social networking and blogging – as IBM, we’re more than used to following in their footsteps.

I’ve just read this story about firms switching from Microsoft Outlook to Lotus Notes (thanks to David Gurteen).

What struck me was the quote from IBM general manager Bob Picciano: “The shift from pre-Web, proprietary technology to open software that helps people connect, collaborate and innovate at a reasonable cost is undeniable…”

A surprising coincidence, since we built the intranet and social media tools using Lotus Notes/Domino.
