Ferris Research has published a report analyzing the success of the Lotus Notes/Domino 6 release.  This report, a free download sponsored by IBM, is the output of research and interviews with customers who have deployed Notes/Domino 6.  It is an attempt to validate whether the promises of the release -- lower total cost of ownership, improved user productivity, and increased integration with existing infrastructure -- were indeed delivered.

Two major versions of Lotus Notes/Domino--6.0 and 6.5--have been released in the last 2½ years, and most organizations have begun upgrading from older versions. This white paper discusses the new features of these releases and whether they present a compelling case for an upgrade. It also provides information gathered from interviews with messaging managers who have upgraded from Notes/Domino 5.
Based on surveys, tech support incidents, and other inputs, it seems the vast majority of the market has upgraded to Notes/Domino 6.x.  This report should help with justification for organizations that haven't gone down the road yet.  It also will be helpful as we head down the road to Notes/Domino 7, by validating that IBM delivers on its promises.
