The Domino Server and Lotus Notes client have an exciting future

By Andrew Pollack on 09/23/2007 at 12:48 PM EDT

I (and some others) had a recent opportunity to participate in some long term future discussions with the IBM development teams. I can't talk directly about anything specific that I've been shown, but I cannot help but report that the future has more cool stuff in it than I'd thought possible in a much shorter time frame. The IBM teams are focused on making the product more robust, much easier (and less expensive) to support, and much more easily integrated with -- well, pretty much everything. The development tools as well, seem to have almost the entire list of things everyone has been asking for for a long time accounted for in one way or another and a few things that I think are going to be paradigm changing and yet haven't even been requested or considered yet in the general Lotus user base.

It is exciting times indeed. I'm working on getting permission to post an article on one or two key things in the very near future, so that those of you in blog land can help explain what you're seeing on stage at Lotusphere to those who won't have had time digest it yet. We'll see how that goes.

The reason I say all this is simple:

If you don't have your Lotusphere tickets yet, get them right away. You need to be there this year.
