James Governor alerted me to this case study of a customer migrating from using ICQ for business instant messaging over to Lotus Sametime running on iSeries:

First thing most users are saying the interface is very MSN Messenger Like so they are adopting it without training or question. I am shocked...

Best corporate win, further simplification of IT environment by leveraging existing technologies to do 1 more thing, while adding corporate compliance with an enterprise level, server side, IM offering...

Ok it doesn't roll of the tongue...

This is the very first time we have taken an application run off a Linux machine and move it to a commercial offering. I see this as an evolution of a mature offering that made sense to play with and use in an open source space, but in addressing our desire to simplify, we leveraged an existing investment in technology to move us forward.
