vowe dot net :: What do you think Lotus will be doing?

More Volker-channeled community input for IBM Lotus -- check the comments on the full post 

What do you think, Lotus can really do if they try? Or what do you think they will do?

I will give you some that I think they will not do:

  1. Lotus will not make Domino their primary development platform for new application. I have a couple of reasons to believe that. Go to the research lab at Lotusphere and see how these guys build stuff. And then look at the software development in IBM Software Group. Lifecycle management, development tools, etc.
  2. Lotus will not greatly simplify to a few products. Why? Because some things cannot be thrown in because they are owned by more than one brand. Those products have to stand on their own. Or on more general terms: every product has to stand on their own.
