AHL outs Exchange for Lotus
From ZDNet Austrailia: AHL outs Exchange for Lotus
Nice to see coverage of a consolidation going the "right" way... :)
Microsoft's Exchange collaboration platform will no longer be used by Amalgamated Holdings (AHL), as the diversified Australian company has started standardising its operations on IBM's rival software Lotus Notes.
AHL is in the entertainment, hospitality, tourism and leisure industries through assets such as Greater Union cinemas, film processing firm Atlab, hotel chain Rydges and Sydney's State Theatre.
"Half the business ran Notes already -- the Rydges Hotels ran Notes, and the other half of the business ran Exchange. They've decided to bring it all into a Notes environment," IMC sales director Matt Dixon told ZDNet Australia via telephone last week.
"They've got corporate-wide business applications that run on Notes as well, so it sort of made sense to bring the mail across from Exchange to have everything run on the same platform."
