Some Lotus users have told Computer Weekly that they want to know how IBM Lotus products will compare against Microsoft's rival software products this year.
The main focus at Lotusphere 2005 is expected to be the forthcoming release of Notes and Domino 7, an alternative to Microsoft Exchange and, according to some experts, open source applications from IBM partner SuSE, which is backed by Novell.
Ken Visconti, IBM vice-president of workplace, portal and collaboration products, said, "Notes is not being replaced by IBM Workplace [IBM's development framework], it is becoming part of IBM Workplace and it is here to stay."
