Fighting FUD

You'll notice a new icon on the left of the screen called Fighting FUD. The big challenge which Notes & Domino faces today (indeed has always faced) is the competition (normally but not exclusively Microsoft) trying to increase their market share through the use of Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) about the product.

We often hear that Domino is going away after the next release or that somehow it is not worth investing in because of some problem it will introduce in the future. The claims are always baseless but when senior management are hearing it from sources they (inexplicably) trust there is a constant low level firefight going on by us to keep things alive.

What has been lacking is a central resource which offers well structured defence of the erroneous claims. Christopher Byrne over at the Business Controls Caddy has started just such an area. Hopefully it will make life just that little bit easier.
