Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I've spent the past couple of weeks working with Trailhead, the excellent (and free) gamified learning system provided by Salesforce. As I dive deeper into Salesforce, I am impressed by the parallels with Notes/Domino, but also intrigued by the differences. My goal is not to leave Notes/Domino, but to provide our customers with the appropriate solutions for their needs. That might be Notes/Domino or might be Salesforce, but it also might be that they need Salesforce with a dash of Domino, or Domino with a soupçon of Salesforce.
 
We fill the needs our customers have. If we need to extend Salesforce or extend Notes/Domino, we can do it; So, if you are one of our Notes/Domino customers and see my Salesforce posts, know that I am learning from the competition (imitation being the sincerest form of flattery). If you used to be on Notes/Domino and remember our products, but have moved to Salesforce since, know that I am looking at ways to bring the best of both Genii Software's products and Notes/Domino to Salesforce where appropriate.
 
Of course, there is also an excellent chance that your company has both Salesforce and Notes/Domino. In that case, know that one focus will be on moving data back and forth seamlessly on demand. I have already been playing with the Bulk Load API in Salesforce and the Midas LSX to move data quickly and easily. The JSON support built into Genii's products allows for RESTful interchanges and high fidelity. More on that later, but if you would like to discuss your needs or ask any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
