IBM Notes and IT Security
CIOs, CISOs, and their IT security mavens have sounded-off on Notes' versatility, even though (or perhaps because of) its having been around now for more than two decades. And, although MS Outlook has enjoyed more mainstream success as the email application with multi-platform translation, Notes continues to hold its own in terms of better-performing cybersecurity, especially with its soft-coding and encryption abilities. In fact, XPages just released its latest Extension Library (Version 17) and IBM Notes Domino 9.0.1. It could be arguably stated that Notes is a better bet in the realm of cybersecurity than its stable mate Microsoft Office, especially in light of some of the security and functionality faults in MS apps.
High Compatibility Factor
IBM Notes has a history of having a "high backward compatibility" rating. CIO Thomas Duff says that, "Few software applications can boast about compatibility across versions like Notes can." Domino servers can be upgraded when Notes migration occurs, in as little as fifteen minutes. As well, you can take a Notes 1.0 built in 1989 and open up docs written in it in current Notes 9!. Can Microsoft boast that? Notes also allows you to be as productive offline as on, due to the built in replication features, efficient data mergers and synchronization.
Notes Speaks, Users Listen
One can largely thank its multilingual, multi-application features for Notes' versatile popularity. Programmers have probably largely migrated to it due to its soft-coding programmability, and association even with Linux and open source apps. There is a freedom that Notes can grant you, if you are adept enough as a web dev guru or IT expert, but CEOs and some CIOs may have some difficulty grasping its merits. Well, let them learn the benefits of its multilingual applicational possibilities!
