LOTUS NOTES IS ONE OF the most successful -- and interesting -- software products of the last few years. Since its introduction in 1990, sales of Lotus Notes have increased tenfold.

Notes' generic software category is "groupware," software that allows members of a group to communicate and share information. Groupware functionality does not have to be stand-alone, like Notes. It can be embedded in other software, as well.
