VARBusiness: Who Needs Notes/Domino Anymore?

“And yet, nearly anyone following the messaging and collaboration space closely plainly sees that it is the component-oriented Lotus Workplace, not legacy Notes/Domino, where IBM is going to commit its resources long-term. Workplace is less expensive, is Web- and/or rich-client-based, and is built in the J2EE-based WebSphere environment. IBM probably won’t kill Notes/Domino altogether (eliminating platforms is not an IBM forte — can you say OS/2?). But there is sure to come a day when IBM isn’t selling new versions of Lotus’ groundbreaking client/server software, which has lost ground to Microsoft’s Outlook/Exchange juggernaut in recent years. It’s more likely that IBM will grudgingly support those in the Notes installed base who won’t migrate their applications to the new platform, but continue a long-term development investment?”
