Butler Group: Red herring and bull?

Ed Brill quoted an article by Butler Group, which addressed the discussion around the Red Bull introduction. It also highlighted some findings of some research they did in the email market ..10% of the organisations using Lotus Notes plan to migrate away from Lotus Notes / Domino to Microsoft Exchange …

In Butler Group’s End User Survey (EUS) on e-mail undertaken in December 2005, the use of Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino was even across the survey group, with each accounting for 60% of deployments. This indicated that around 10% of mainly large organisations have both products in use – often as a result of mergers and acquisitions. Indeed, 14% of the survey group said that they operated two corporate e-mail systems, and one company had five different systems in use.

Around 40% of the organisations questioned said that they had e-mail migrations or significant upgrades planned. A quarter of these were planning to migrate from Lotus Domino to Microsoft Exchange, and 8% were planning to migrate from Microsoft Exchange to some form of e-mail appliance.

  1. I may have missed it Peter, but what are your thoughts on the whole Application Analyser event. I was expecting you to jump all over my findings and try to find holes. Instead I got nothing?

  2. @ Paul
    I basicly haven’t worked with the new version.
    All the projects I am involved in have been working with the current version of the application analyzer
    Therefor I have no means of validating your tests.

  3. Thats fair enough Peter and I respect the honest answer. My question was more on the whole “withdrawl of the beta” for conflicting reasons etc that I am sure you have seen. Not a technical question. You said on Ed’s site that you would post your thoughts on the whole thing. But maybe I missed them.

  4. Paul,
    Yet another honoust answer .. I haven’t realy had the time to dig into it and meanwhile as you may ahve seen also the productmanager started blogging.
    I really think it’s up to him to address whatever he feels necessary.
    My personal opinion on the whole is nuch in line with the comments I gave on your evaluation of the current tool. The application analyzer is a valuable tool as part of the whole anlysis process; it is no silver bullit. Having used the current tool (or at least partners / consultants in the engagements I worked in) I can say for certain it has been very valuable and did deliver good insights into the current domino application landscape. I am sure the new version will bring improvements to this; this is my honoust opinion and not a political answer 🙂
