IBM Notes Comments

Really really bad software. (At least the version 8.5)

Negative Comment by Ganymede
about IBM Notes Oct 2014

I really don't understand how it is possible that a software like this could be commercial, and how it is possible that it is sold by a company like IBM.
I can understand that a software never can be perfect, but this lacks of very basic functionalities and has visible bugs in the core functions. It is also difficult to configure and to manage.
Luckily I'm not the only one to think that and also my company decided to migrate to a better solution.
If you are evaluating the possibility to adopt it for your business make you a favour, stay away from it, for sure there are a lot of alternatives (commercial or free) that are better than it ( I really doubt that can exists a worst software than lotus notes in this field).
