San Francisco city workers will be losing their Notes and exchanging them for a hosted Exchange. About two-thirds of San Francisco's 23,000 employees now use Notes, with the rest using premises-based Exchange.
One reason for the move is simplicity -- this will eliminate a bunch of servers and different hunks of software with WAN connections talking to the cloud. Oh, and the city expects to save money.
While some may worry about a recent Exchange online outage, on-premise servers go down too -- I'm not sure which is worse.
Google and IBM both made a run for this business, with Microsoft ultimately prevailing.
