BOOM. This will be as important for the platform as Traveler. If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you.
For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why:
There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad.
Currently, any application you develop for IOS has to go through the app store. It's a big deal and it has to handle what to do with users who have nothing to do with your company. It's subject to formal review. It costs money. The alternative is a custom HTML5 wrapper app accessed by browser. The ability to deploy "quick" data collection or workflow apps to users on IOS is very painful for this reason.
Now, if your company already runs Domino as a platform, you'll be able to add this app and your IOS carrying end users will be able to interact with forms that are fully able to participate in workflow, data collection, data reporting, etc.
