In case you never knew why people love Notes...

Dieter Stalder of STDI was responding to a post in the Business Partner forum about what you would say to other IBM partners about why to use Notes/Domino for your business.  Since his copyright allows sharing, I thought I would share this with my readers.  This is truly a reason to love Notes and Notes development:

    STDI Consulting started about 12 years ago and the first custom application was a CRM system. Many others followed in short succession, and they are still running today, never upgraded, never failed. Can somebody give me the ROI on 10 hour development time and 10+ years of runtime?

I spend most of my time in my office working on at least two PC's simultaneously (that's my answer to VM ware). Data sharing is not an issue there and not when I catch a flight to Switzerland this afternoon. Replication with encrypted remote connections and encrypted databases on the local PC keep my personal data secure and more important, all my customer test data, confidential or not, untouchable by anybody else then me and my Crypto Token (smartcard). Hey, steal my laptop, please, I need an excuse to upgrade my 500MHz Thinkpad. Don't laugh, Notes 7.02 runs very reliable and efficient on other then just the latest Bazillion Processor (sorry, lost track of the names). 

There are many more good reasons to run the business on Notes and Domino, but I really have to catch a flight.
