What were the reasons that I would fly halfway around the world to help architect and install a new software product? What were the driving factors that provided this opportunity? The answer is simple, at the time LWM fit a niche. A low-cost email system that could be delivered to thousands of employees with little hardware requirements.
Today, Lotus Workplace Messaging (LWM) no longer exists. In fact, LWM met its demise in 2008. Around that same time, we migrated the client to an alternative platform. Just recently we successfully migrated the same 3500+ users to Office365.
Although 12 years have gone by, the needs of the community haven’t changed. There is a continued push to empower all workers in a company whether they be office workers, insurance agents, salespeople, assembly line workers, etc… There continues to be a need to deliver email in the most cost-effective and efficient way.
However, today we have Office365.
