e-Pro Magazine: WebSphere Market Booms as the Game Changes for Domino "“Domino sales have been steady, but the messaging market has matured. Most of the growth on the Lotus side is in the collaboration products: Sametime and QuickPlace.”
With Domino, the market is about integration and management. Although the number of messaging seats doesn’t look like it has room to grow, there’s still business demand on the Domino side. “Customers have built their platforms on Domino and they’ll continue with it. There’s no reason to move to another platform,” Madden said. “But spending in this area will be in things like Web services and portals for intranets or extranets.” Enterprise spending has moved from messaging and is focused more on concepts like business integration and content management."
