Driving SharePoint Adoption in Lotus Notes Enterprises

ZDNet White Papers: Mainsoft – Driving SharePoint Adoption in Lotus Notes Enterprises

“Many organizations are investing strategically in Microsoft SharePoint to deliver more efficient documentation collaboration and project management capabilities. However, less than sixty percent of end-users with access to SharePoint are active users, according to an InfoTrends study1. Mainstream users are hesitant to adopt team workspaces, primarily because accessing SharePoint through a Web browser is a cumbersome, multi-step process. To encourage people to change their collaboration habits, a growing number of organizations are investing in software that makes SharePoint easy to access and easy to use by integrating team sites into users’ current IT tools, especially email. Email is the primary gateway for business users to send and receive critical business information, and it’s where many users spend the majority of their workday. Delivering an integrated user experience enables users to focus on getting their work done, rather than spending time learning new processes and juggling their email and collaboration tools.

For Lotus Notes customers, integrating email with SharePoint can be accomplished quickly and cost effectively by integrating existing IBM® and Microsoft platforms. Mainsoft SharePoint Integrator for Lotus Notes delivers an intuitive SharePoint experience for Notes users. It combines the document collaboration, calendaring, and social networking capabilities of SharePoint with the email and instant messaging capabilities of Lotus Notes and Lotus Sametime®2. Users can easily access and share documents and project emails, which are otherwise locked into people’s inboxes and are difficult to share or retrieve. They can also manage team events from their personal calendars and discover and build their enterprise social networks. Long-term, enterprises can either choose software coexistence or a migration strategy to Outlook® and Exchange®, because Mainsoft SharePoint Integrator supports Microsoft Outlook with the same document collaboration and social networking experience as in Lotus Notes3, minimizing user training requirements as users are migrated.”
