IBM Lotus announced that U.S. Bank, the 6th largest commercial bank in the United States, has chosen Lotus collaboration software over Microsoft’s SharePoint-based platform, marking a considerable win for IBM Lotus Notes Domino (8.5!), Lotus Sametime, and Lotus Quickr. From the U.S. Bank win press release:
Prior to the rollout of Lotus Web 2.0 collaboration technology, U.S. Bank had consolidated users on legacy platforms through a number of acquisitions over the years. It was using an older version of IBM Lotus Notes and Domino, and more than 5,000 siloed Microsoft Sharepoint sites. The bank was looking to transform the way it does business both internally and with its customers to reflect their increasingly Web-oriented lives.
