The current news that Centrelink (Australia’s Social Security Organisation) has decided to stay with the Lotus Notes Platform [Article in Australian IT] is a significant one for the Australian Lotus Community.
Centrelink is one of the largest Notes Houses in the country, and a shift away would have sent a signal through the market.
The decision does however, highlight that Notes Domino is far more than just email. The installed Domino Application base in Centrelink is a very serious factor in the decision process for making any changes.
Notes 8.0’s new user interface doesn’t hurt many of these decisions these days. It’s far harder to use the old chestnut that Outlook looks nicer any more.
