NZ Department of Internal Affairs is moving to Exchange

I got excited that an email archiving tender came out from the NZ Department of Internal Affairs.

I understood them to be a Domino shop and our archiving product tends to do well in these situations, but there it was.. "The Department is in the process of migrating email and calendar functionality from Lotus Notes to Microsoft Outlook/Exchange."

Unfortunately I have seen this enough over the last two years to believe it is now a trend - it is a bit of a bugger really.

Well that is a bummer. Makes you wanna, grab them by the scruff of the neck and try to shake some sense into them. Where did you get the info and is it too late?

Blasted government departments and their bottonless pit IT budgets. What a waste of money - as a NZ taxpayer, I really resent such a move .
