  • 29. Microsoft - why worry? ”If Microsoft can replace everything else in the stack for the smaller customer, it will do everything in its power to do that” - Mike Gilpin, Forrester Research Director • Microsoft has asked their sales and partners to reach out to Notes customers before they upgrade to Notes 8. Once on Notes 8 their willingness to go the Microsoft way is reduced considerably – the window of opportunity is closing • An indication to us of the importance of driving the Notes 8 upgrade! IBM Lotus Software 34
  • 30. Notes and Domino – much more than just e-mail ”Calling Lotus Notes a mail solution and comparing Lotus Notes to Microsoft Outlook, is like asking Tiger Woods to go 18-holes with his putter.” IBM Lotus Software 35
  • 31. Microsoft planted messages - FUD Messages that are recurring to much to be occasional: 2. “Outlook and the Microsoft UC2 solutions have a nicer UI” 3. “Users love Outlook and use it at home.” 4. “No one else in your line of business use Lotus Notes.“ 5. “Candidates for your future merger and acquisitions are likely to run Exchange.” 6. “You have too many Domino applications. A Microsoft decision will lead to fewer and more targeted applications” Fight the FUD! IBM Lotus Software 36
  • 32. The subjective argument – enter the beauty contest now • Notes 7 was released in the fall of 2005 • Notes 6.5 was released in the fall of 2003, support ending April 30. 2009 • Your customers are comparing 3-5 year old technology to Outlook 2007 • How to counter the taste argument ”It is ugly as shit – especially Outlook 2007” - Wanderingstan blog IBM Lotus Software 37
  • 33. Users love Outlook and use it at home – Not true! • Business usage patterns are not the same as home use of Outlook/Outlook Express – Microsoft estimates that <10% use Outlook at home! • Tools such as Facebook, Hotmail, Google, MySpace, Skype, LinkedIn and other web 2.0 technologies are at least as important to the private user • Home e-mail is dominated by Hotmail, G-mail and POP3/IMAP ISV solutions accessed through Thunderbird or proprietary browser solutions – Outlook is not a preferred home use client model • Microsoft is not promoting the use of Outlook 2007 for private email • Office 2007 Home & Student Edition does not include Outlook • Vista no longer comes with Outlook Express (no new developments for 5 years) • New mail experience – Windows Mail - does not resemble Outlook • Microsoft is moving home users to Windows Live, unsuitable for corporate use IBM Lotus Software 38
  • 34. The grass isn’t always greener over there… How difficult do you find the Exchange 2007 upgrade to be? Source: Ferris Research, Exchange 2007 Implementation Issues, December 2007. With permission “Within the land of IT, nothing is a bigger pain to own, manage and run than Microsoft Exchange. Everywhere you go customers have horror stories about the installation, maintenance and, above all, up-time of their Microsoft Exchange implementations. And worse yet, they will all tell you they are paying top dollar for the privilege because the expertise needed to successfully run a Microsoft Exchange server is some of the most expensive in the IT labour pool.” - Michael Vizard, eWeek, September 2007 IBM Lotus Software 39
  • 35. The Microsoft alternative The Outlook for Exchange is cloudy • Rigid requirements - New 64-bit server requirement in Exchange • Creeping dependencies – SQL Server, Windows Server etc. • Exchange no longer supported as an application platform - Existing API’s are withdrawn • No upgrades just migrations – Exchange 2003 will not upgrade to Exchange 2007 – Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 will not upgrade to Windows 2007 – No rolling upgrades – No mixed environments • Complicated and expensive (active-passive) clustering • Application capabilities scattered over multiple clients and interfaces IBM Lotus Software 40
  • 36. quot;What’s the ques tion? S harePoint is the ans wer STEVE quot;S harePoint does a lot of thing s , but it does very few thing s very well. - S hawn S hell, C E O of C onsejo, author of The S hareP oint R eport 2008 from C MS W atch IBM Lotus Software 41
  • 37. CMS Watch – Portal comparison study • ...CMS Watch identifies seven common enterprise portals, of which MOSS excels at two: Collaboration and Web Development. • quot;For use as an enterprise portal, MOSS will remain an unlikely fit for most e-business scenarios or enterprise-wide deployments in large organizationsquot; • quot;MOSS adds a long set of new features, but MOSS should still only be considered for departmental collaboration or intranet scenarios in mid-market organizations already using Microsoft intensivelyquot; • ...the most value from enhanced Office integration will come to those enterprises concurrently upgrading to Office 2007. Customers on older versions of Office may find their usability mileage varies. • As with the previous version, ease of installation obscures difficulty in customization and ongoing maintenance; administrators can easily get in over their head. • quot;Microsoft has tried to go 'enterprise' in the impressive breadth of MOSS capabilities, but not necessarily in their depth and scalability” IBM Lotus Software 42
  • 38. MOSS enters the valley of disappointment • SharePoint will continue to grow at viral rates as a low cost, low touch, document collaboration system. But in 2008 we will see the start of a noticeable backlash, particularly among larger enterprises • The backlash will be two-fold. First larger enterprises will exhibit major compliance and litigation discovery issues across numerous unmanaged and unaccountable SharePoint locations. You will also see a backlash against sizable development costs and times to build maintainable applications in the MOSS environment. • With the more complex SharePoint projects struggling to launch, customers are realizing a disconnect between Redmond's heavy promotion and the realities of a product that is significantly less out-of-the-box than most expect.

  • 46. What about saving the entire email ?? • In the same way users are able to save attachments into Quickr places, Lotus Quickr 8.1 will allow Notes users to save the body of the email as well. • By doing so, the email itself can become part of the Quickr place and can be managed, accessed, archived, and controlled alongside all of the other relevant team content IBM Lotus Software 51

  • 48. Lotus Connections is superior to Microsoft SharePoint • On stage comparison held June 10. in Boston hosted by The Burton Group • Lotus Connections came across as a clear winner of the comparison, and the success has resounded on blogs since then • Leverage the momentum attained from this event to take on and entice competitive accounts with Connections • Ask for materials from IBM ”IBM came across as a clear winner” - Mike Gotta, The Burton Group IBM Lotus Software
  • 49. Microsoft licensing best practises • Microsoft is not telling your customers the full story – they need to watch out for the trap! • An EA with Microsoft is an expensive way of acquiring Microsoft software – Windows Professional Upgrade is rarely used - and costly – Buy Office Standard Edition as and when needed – Don’t buy things you do not use • Additional licensing is required for SharePoint, Exchange and Office Communication Server to access most new functionality • Substantial cost in SQL Server – Use SQL Server processor based licensing – Additional compared to many IBM solutions Let’s do something and do it • Total cost savings potential 35-80% quickly, because I’m sitting on a • Customers with an EA needs to oust Notes big pile of cash over here.” to attain value from their EA ”We’re continua lly surprised by • Engage with customers and Microsoft companies that don’t take the ti the number of me to conduct a financial analysis customers alike (1.000 user minimum) of the costs and benefits of SA” IBM Lotus Software 55
