Leaving Lotus

Every now and again, we're honored to have Ted Dinsmore grace the pages of Redmond Channel Partner magazine. Ted, along with Ed O'Connor, is the author of "Partnering with Microsoft," the only book-length examination I know of that covers the basic dos and don'ts and ins and outs of partnering with Microsoft.

Ted, who works as a consultant, thinks the release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is a game-changer when it comes to migrating customers from Lotus to Microsoft technologies. While Exchange and Outlook have been stealing Lotus mail customers for years, moving customers off Lotus collaborative applications has been a tougher sell.

Check out Ted's feature on the market opportunity, along with some nice guides to help you start landing and performing this business, here.
