Do you know how much that e-mail costs?


May 12, 2009 10:19 am





Whether the economy has take a turn for the better or not, everyone today is tightening the proverbial belt and looking to cut costs wherever they can. It is no wonder that even the most essential business tools, like e-mail, are being scrutinized for savings.

While IT managers know that deploying and managing e-mail systems can be an expensive proposition, there are significant differences in the cost of messaging systems that require less IT time and labor to manage. In fact, this recently published Osterman Research report demonstrates that Novell GroupWise offers a lower cost of ownership compared to Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes/Domino, due primarily to small investments required by IT staff and less downtime – making GroupWise good for the business and for the bottom line.

    Nice report, but Domino also runs on Linux which should have been included in the appropriate section.
    As a Notes Developer – I would argue the downtime numbers. I’ve worked with Domino on Linux, Windows, and AS/400 – the Windows setups always had more downtime than the other two. I currently have a Notes/Domino install that requires next to no intervention from me – most of it is creating new users.
