    Anyone had any experience with this product at all?
    Been looking at it online and its benefits and as far as i can see it does exactly the same job as office and sharepoint combined would do.

    Is there any compatibility issues between lotus and microsoft office at all?

    This all stemmed from a conversation with a colleague who thinks lotus is a great system, having had almost no experience with it i am quite curious.

    I have no experience with Lotus Notes, so I don't know :( But I think Exchange with Outlook is a great system :biggrin

    Anyway, you could try downloading a trial of Lotus/Domino 7 and try out the program and it's features. Or if you're lucky enough to get a hold of Lotus/Domino 8 beta 3, even better.

    Think of Exchange / Outlook as an application platform that will do email and basic calendaring and contact management. Although it is possible to develop appications to run ontop of Exchange / Outlook, it is not that easy or common.

    Think of Domino / Notes a a development platform. Its main purpose is email and basic caledaring and contact management, but the tools are there to develop databases and applications around it.

    Lotus Notes is shite! I can't wait to get away from it; the TCO of this terrible software must be huge! It's a fricken job creation scheme in itself!!

    Just my opinion...

    Although I haven't supported a Notes environment in years (since 2000), it sucked back then... and from what you guys are saying, it sounds like it's no better now.

    Lotus is buggy, unreliable and illogical... even a clean install and getting it working for a user can be a real pain.

    If you need a solid email\messaging solution than go for Exchange but supposedly Notes is a better platform to develop on.

    I don’t rate Lotus Notes but unfortunately I’m stuck with it. :blink
