This morning I googled for 'Lotus Foundations' on pages from Australia and found the following result:
Our international colleagues may not have heard of EOS Solutions or ISW. They are two of our local Lotus Business Partners and given the comparatively small size of the Australian market we all find ourselves in friendly competition now and again.
It's amazing how the Foundations product pages on these two sites are now heading the local Google page rankings for Lotus Foundations despite the fact that Foundations has not yet been officially launched in Australia. I'm shocked to realize that despite my daily preoccupation with researching and blogging about Lotus Foundations Server I have missed every reference to these two organisations in the local IT news. I must be looking in the wrong places since their high page rank shows they are doing a far better job of marketing Foundations than anyone else including IBM!
Surely that must be the reason ;)
Tim, you may need to have a $erious talk with your PR agency to see how EOS beat you to the top spot.
It's interesting that Google searches for 'Lotus Domino', 'Lotus SameTime' or 'Lotus Quickr' don't produce the same results, but given the apparently overwhelming market presence of these two consulting powerhouses I'm sure that's only a matter of time.
Go to it guys!
Heh... heh... heh...
