Qantas dumps notes for Exchange: Report

Industry Web site Travel Blackboard has reported that Qantas is migrating from its decades-long commitment to Lotus Notes in favour of Microsoft Exchange.

It claims the decision to switch to Outlook emanated from Qantas CEO Alan Joyce and IT executive David Hall.

"At the end of February, we will see between 100 and 200 executives migrate to Outlook," the site quotes Hall, Qantas corporate services and technology executive manager.

"We will then look at moving 20,000 people over from Notes. All this will happen over the course of this year.”

Hall told Travel Blackboard, "It's a fundamental change but it's really terrific for people in terms of ease of use.

"We're looking to refresh our communications tools and we'll be moving to a full suite of Microsoft Office and SharePoint as well."
