I’m setting here scratching my head over this post in Business Week’s Byte of the Apple blog today. It discusses the enterprise integration of the iPhone now that the SDK is out and one piece of information puzzled me (emphasis mine):
But having crossed out one round of problems, a new crop will inevitably appear. For example, many big companies — maybe 20% of them — use software other than Exchange, such as IBM’s Lotus Domino.
What? Maybe 20%? This statement lumps in Notes with other messaging platforms indicating that Notes has less than 20% market share. Ridiculous! Gartner reported that Notes had a market share of about 42% in 2006 and was on the rise while Exchange took 47% and was on a decline, albeit a slow decline. IDC had similar numbers.
I should have known.
