Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Exchange

Microsoft Exchange is the organisations main mail server, a decision was made to shift to O360 so any in house servers are deemed as legacy servers, though certain older applications cannot deal with O360 therefore some locall hosted exchange servers exist to bridge this gap. Overall exchange in its latest guise doesn't really have any issues if used alongside O360, throttle was always one issue and organisation bandwidth but utilising a hybrid solution best of both worlds can be achieved.

Lotus notes now a defunct product and use to be pegged against Exchange server, but once IBM purchased Lotus then Notes gradually demised and Exchange became the front runner.

IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson, Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)
Well suited to most organisations, is a very scaleable product and if used in conjunction with O365, then can provide an all round mail solution that has protection and deals with most scenarios. I have on quite a few projects instigated this dual approach where there is a need to retain a local presence. O365 Exchange on its own is quite a basic tool in comparison and could facilitate the extra functionality of the full product making it a better user experience.
