MWLUG Recap and the future of Notes/Domino

After reading blog for last few months and seeing the new post from him I agree with his analysis with the direction RPD.

“Everything that we heard from IBM, Business Partners, and other companies using Notes confirmed our belief that we are heading in the right direction.

But here is my thought on the new platforms that we are going to endure next 5 years.

With all the rapid changes we see in the JavaScript framework places. We are not going to see a web app with lifespan that will have more than 2 – 3 years maybe less. Developers are going to have 3 -6 years lifespan and the turnaround is going to be higher in IT DEV.  We see that now.

My workplace today has gone from Domino to O365 and with it we are in the early 2003 – 2005 ” in the way we work”.  We are back to excel on share drives for simple things. Confluence is doing things that it can´t handle and was not made to handle like vacation request. We use Jira for helpdesk and that works very well. Our 20 years old CRM is going to be replaced by SugarCRM.  O365 Email is dead slow and not dependable.

But whats next for Domino ? Will it just die and go away ? Maybe we could see a Open Source Domino/Notes. Would it be great if we could install it on SAN  like Synology SAN box ( Am currently  looking into that maybe its possible now )  Synology is open source and you can get it

Things are not as simple now a days

  1. “O365 Email is dead slow and not dependable”.

    Could you elaborate on that? Is this is a number of users v bandwidth thing, or maybe some weird routing issue?
