IBM Software news: Here to stay! Notes begins evolution into premier rich client for IBM Workplace (2005-01-11) "So what is the answer for Notes customers wondering when they should move to IBM Workplace? They don’t have to move at all, says Bisconti, because Notes will take them there.
“Customers shouldn’t think of IBM Workplace as something new and separate that they need to worry about and stop and think and move to,” he says. “Workplace is our next-generation family of collaboration and portal technologies, and over time the Notes product family will adopt these technologies in the most appropriate and natural manner for our customers.”
Bisconti reiterates that throughout this period of change, Notes will continue its tradition of backward compatibility and investment protection.
“We realize what a big part Notes plays in our customers’ every business day,” he says. “So we’re not going to run-off and create a brand-new experience. Whatever we do to improve the product, we’re going to make sure it retains full-fidelity support for the functions and capabilities our customers have invested in.”
