CoexLinks - Moved but not gone

It may be a little strange for those who have watched CoexLinks grow through the posts on this website but don't hear as much anymore.  The second post I made in this weblog back in May of 2003 was entitled COEX! Links a better idea than I thought , in which I confessed that I hadn't been a believer at first, but was becoming one.  By July of 2003 in  Advertising vs. Marketing, I had already started to recognize that the marketing approach we use for our Midas Rich Text LSX was not really sufficient for CoexLinks (renamed after a total rewrite to use Midas technology).  By September, I had adapted our approach some in The Big "Why?" for e-mail Coexistence.   Several posts later and one major version later, in July 2004, we announced in Collaborative Distribution that Granite Software was taking over sales and distribution for CoexLinks.

During this period, CoexLinks had been transformed from a very simple application that converted doclinks to NDL attachments and little more, to a more complete solution that allowed transformation into Notes URLs or Web URLs and allowed a company to transition databases from Notes clients to the web.

Soon, we will release a new CoexLinks version, with enhanced scalability, a Linux version, and more options for controlling where people should be directed and how when a link is found.  This reflects our evolving understand of what businesses need when their Notes/Domino applications coexist with other e-mail systems, whether that system in Microsoft Exchange or a web based e-mail system or Workplace Messaging, or even a mix of e-mail systems.  The support and distribution may have moved, but the vision is still growing and will be reflected in CoexLinks and other coexistence products that are still in the development stages.  Stay tuned!
