Albany International supplies the worldwide pulp and paper industry with technologically advanced structured materials and related services. In 2005, the company’s messaging solution, based on IBM Lotus Domino Server and Lotus Notes, had grown to 62 server computers and had become difficult and costly to manage. Notes/Domino also didn’t adequately support the centralized data center or broad collaboration strategy that Albany was planning to implement. In response, the company deployed a collaboration solution that includes Microsoft® Exchange Server, Office Live Meeting, and Live Communications Server, along with its existing deployment of Microsoft Office SharePoint® Portal Server. As a result, Albany has consolidated 62 servers into just 7, and it has reduced costs and simplified IT management. Employees also collaborate more effectively, improving their productivity.
