About Notes ROI Studies
In 1994, International Data Corporation, IDC, conducted a study on the financial impact of Lotus Notes. Following extensive research with 68 Lotus Notes customers, the results were extremely favorable. IDC found that Notes customers yielded, on average, an annual ROI of nearly 200%.
The following documents resulted from the study are:
IDC Special Report (Summary White Paper) - The Summary White Paper is a shortened version of the full report, containing all major findings and five shortened case studies.
IDC Final Report (Detailed Report) - The full report contains all findings, guidelines for implementing Notes, five full-length case studies and a section on ROI methodology. This document may help you to calculate a potential ROI when planning a Notes purchase.
Individual Company Case Studies - The case studies are reports on the individual companies that participated in the research. The individual case studies describe the Notes implementation and applications within the context of each company's business objectives.
