Domino gives you the capabilities of modern cloud platforms with an affordable and predictable TCO. We stopped using Notes for mail-in 2017 and switched to outlook but we still use our Domino systems every day. We've looked at many options to migrate from Domino to SharePoint and Domino to teams but have never found anything that even approaches the functionality and versatility of Domino. In recent years, following HCL's reinvigoration of the product, we've abandoned attempts to move off the platform and have re-embraced it. It was a great decision. We use Domino for user (and guest) management and the Domino systems drive our O365 active directory. We used Domino for the development of specialist systems and for the general distribution of documents. We looked at SharePoint as an option for this but the open-ended nature of SharePoint and Teams resulted in those systems not being trusted by our customers. It's very easy to confirm that there are no users on our domino systems other than those we allow but it's not possible to do that on a borderless cloud solution such as Office 365. Domino is extremely cheap to build on and maintain. For example, some of the systems we developed in Azure had obsolete frameworks within a couple of years, but our Domino can easily be moved to modern frameworks with a minimum of effort.
  • Security
  • Total Cost of Ownership
  • Compatibility (20+ year old applications continue to run with no issues)
  • Upgrades - these are 30 minute tasks.
  • Mail - It has improved but people want outlook, so we switched.
  • Administration - there are so many settings that sometimes you get lost
Domino is best in medium-sized businesses of 20-100 employees. It's too complicated to implement in very small companies unless you have good external resources. It scales up very well for larger companies but the pressures of users wanting particular "brand-name" software can become difficult. If you want a restricted "extranet/portal" system for a limited set of members it's a great system, particularly if you add a Domino CRM on top. Unlike Microsoft, you never have to resort to command-line tools, like PowerShell, in Domino to get things done.

Domino is used across our entire international organization. Domino/Notes is used as an email, collaboration, and messaging solution as well as a simple database platform, and Intranet/internet web-based email. Domino's database platform facilitates data sharing and access control for divisional, territorial and organization-wide users.
  • Domino support for policy-based user registration and deployment eases end-user creation.
  • User access to databases is simplified via group membership and defined roles.
  • Email replication to clustered servers is simplified through connection/replication documents stored centralized address book
  • Group calendaring enabled at client level controls.
  • I am not a fan of the Domino ID for authentication purposes. Some Admins appreciate this feature, but ID aging, updating and management issues are burdensome.
  • Integrations with current available software applications as a result of lower Domino adoption rates.
  • Administration tools are somewhat dated and clunky. Even with updates and patches, the Domino administrator console hasn't changed in years.
Domino is secure by comparison, due in part by it's lower market share, but also it's native encryption capability. Domino is stable. With fewer changes and revisions, Domino performance can be relied upon with existing infrastructure. Despite its clunky admin console, administration as a whole is easier and more intuitive. The native Domino application language is either Java or LotusScript. Finding developers for the latter application can be troublesome.
