One of the most important sessions at the upcoming Business Process and
Workflow Conference is called "The Workflow Strategies of the Big Three:
Lotus, Novell and Microsoft," by Connie Moore and Torrey Byles, well-known
senior analysts at Giga Information Group (formerly BIS Strategic
Decisions). This indepth session covers how the Big Three compare as
workflow and electronic commerce providers.

Connie and Torrey wanted me to pass on a question from them, however, to
help them make the presentation more meaningful for users.

"What do potential *buyers* of ad hoc workflow, production workflow and
intercompany workflow/electronic commerce software need to know about
Microsoft, Novell and Lotus' workflow strategies? "

Your specific questions and observations about their strategies are
welcomed. You may post to the group if you think this a topic you'd like to
continue sharing or reply directly to me, and I'll pass on the responses to
the Connie & Torrey.

Many thanks
