IBM have announced that the future of Domino is secure, for now.
Through a partnership with HCL India, Domino will be developed beyond the current version 9, with Domino version 10 to be released in the near future. Read the IBM announcement here.
There is the promise of new features, including cloud and hybrid options. The news is welcome, but is it too little, too late? I have not heard of any customers moving onto the Domino platform, except from a merger scenario. Microsoft Office 365 is a compelling choice for any customer with a Domino mail system right now. The IBM announcement may only delay the decision to move to Microsoft.
I look forward to seeing more details of the next release of Domino.
