I noticed an article today on NetworkWorld where the COO of Microsoft, Kevin Turner stated to a Financial Analysts Annual Meeting, that they would be targeting 5 Million Seats of Lotus Notes Customers this next year.

It looks like the competitive scene between IBM and Microsoft is heating up again with both Vendors claiming Marketshare gains last year.

And I know both have competitive campaigns and programs focusing on this core area of the market. It’s going to be an interesting ride in some key Australian Accounts over the next 6 months as they both struggle for mind-share and influence.

The proliferation of Sharepoint is also an interesting dynamic as this article from some Forrester research highlights it is essentially this decade’s Excel & Access, and IT departments will struggle to meet user demand for support, as the creation by users of sharepoint instances grows.
