JANUARY 22, 2013
Dylan Tweney notes that Lotus Notes , which invented a bunch of the enterprise collaboration stuff we now take for granted, has become a drag on IBM’s revenues. Like most end-users of Lotus Notes, I used it primarily as an email program. But there was another dimension to Notes, a powerful, programmable backend that let you create databases and workspaces for collaborative work, contact management, information sharing, and communication.
