Panasonic E-Mail Brouhaha

Earlier this week, I reported that Panasonic was moving a huge number of users from Exchange to LotusLive, a cloud-based e-mail and collaboration suite. Some of you wrote me, arguing that Panasonic was already a Notes shop and had just a handful of Exchange users. And you were right!

Now the plot thickens as Microsoft takes issue with IBM's assertions. Microsoft agrees with Redmond Report readers that only 4 percent of Panasonic users are on Exchange. IBM, wanting this to be a big win, claims that percentage is higher.

Microsoft also argues the LotusLive migration is simply part of an already existing contract, and is nothing new. In the same breath, Microsoft blasts IBM for its declining market share. Aren't these companies a little old for a cat fight?
