It's been a long time since I am thinking of starting my own Blog. Just getting to it now finally. I know there are a large number of blogs on the Lotus Notes/Domino and the Lotus Collaboration Suite of products. Why would I want to get another one that talks about the same. Well, I am going to try and see if I can add a different flavor to it.
Along with giving out periodic information about the Lotus portfolio, concentrating on the Notes/Domino product line, I would like to see if I can give it a growth market flavor, with India as a backdrop. I have been working in IBM India for the past 6 years, and working with Indian Customers have given me some insights into what their expectations are and how they differ from the customers in the developed countries like the US and Europe. I hope to shed some light and tailor my blog to the customers & users in the growth market regions like India, China. Hope I succeed in this. As I continue to blog, I would love to get feedback from all of you, so feel free to comment and let me know how I am doing with my goal.
