This one speaks for itself...

On January 12, the Haiti earthquake struck, with its epicenter just west of the populous capital of Port-au-Prince, and estimates quickly rose to 230,000 dead, 1.5 million homeless and 3 million in need of emergency aid for the most basic necessities. The epic, urgent need on the ground required immediate response. That same day, Colin Cameron, Director of Software Engineering at MAXIMUS, received an inquiry from the CEO asking if the company could set up a Web site quickly to gather contributions for the earthquake victims. ...

Because of the simplicity of this application and advantages of the Lotus Domino rapid application development environment, the application was ready in record time. "I started at about 4:00 in the afternoon and had it online by about 8:00 that night," says Cameron. "So it went from 'Hey, can you do this?' to being live in production in less than two hours." ...

Cameron gives a lot of credit to Lotus Domino for the ease with which all this was accomplished. "With both the Haiti earthquake and the Hurricane Ike relief efforts, rather than waiting several weeks before having something to pilot, we were able to go live in a day. Lotus Domino is a great platform for that."
