Ed Brill has blogged about this customer win at Continental AG already this week from a perspective of a large multi-national corporation standardising on Lotus Notes/Domino for messaging, but it's also notable for a significant commitment to Lotus Quickr:
Continental's acquisition of Siemens VDO brought with it a big question. In addition to its 37,000 IBM Lotus Domino and Notes software users, the company now had 40,000 new Microsoft Exchange and Outlook users from the company it acquired. The evaluation considered several migration scenarios: immediately switching the entire group to the Lotus platform; gradually switching to the Exchange platform; or migrating to third party open source products or hosted services.Link: Automotive Giant Continental Chooses IBM Lotus Software for Unified Messaging and Collaboration
Continental is also now planning to expand its use of Lotus Quickr and Lotus Sametime unified communications and collaboration software. Lotus Quickr will become the company's new default platform for all uses in team and project collaboration. Lotus Quickr was chosen primarily because it provided a simpler, more direct integration with Lotus Notes, access to directories and calendars, integration with Lotus Sametime, which Continental uses for conferencing and instant messaging, plus lower infrastructure and licensing costs. Continental intends to use Lotus Quickr and Lotus Sametime to further expand on-line and real time collaboration within the company, as well as to employ new Enterprise 2.0 functions such as tagging and alerting.
