A few thoughts in no particular order:

I don't know where this is going. But I see some very dedicated people pushing as hard as they can. Both at IBM and at HCL. Work together!

Wie bitte? Das war der positivste Artikel zu dem Thema seit Jahren und man ist damit nicht zufrieden? Hoffentlich knarzt es da nicht wirklich so im Gebälk, wie das gerade klingt. Ich fand auch, dass HCL viel zu wenig Erwähnung fand. Wo sie doch gerade alles daran setzen, die Suppe wieder auszulöffeln.

Die gestellten Panel-Diskussionen hätte man sich auch sparen können und lieber statt dessen kurze Gast-Vorträge einfließen lassen, wie z.B. Apple das tut.

Erst mal, danke Dir, Volker, dass Du über all die Jahre am Thema geblieben bist und daher eine super Perspektive beleuchten und kompetent berichten kannst.

Nachdem IBM mir nämlich mein Business vermiest hat, hatte ich definitiv keine Lust mehr als Don Quichotte durch die Kundenräume zu schleichen.

Insofern vermisse ich meinerseits von der IBM immer noch eine Entschuldigung (und vielleicht hab ich die auch verpasst, mag sein) für ihr absolut miserables Verhalten gegenüber denjenigen von uns, die ihr lange Zeit vernachlässigtes Produkt über viele Jahre bei Kunden platziert und verteidigt haben. Das nennt sich allgemeinhin "Verantwortung übernehmen" ...

IBM really needs to eat a giant piece of humble pie. HCL did what they couldn't. Let's all cheer HCL on.

I am always happy to read such articles from a real expert who is a friend of Domino but realistic enough to see the situation as it is. And I agree that this Domino 10/HCL initiative comes far too late.

Good observations. We at HCL of course viewed the event during our work day as recorded video.

I can't speak to the unhappiness of IBM with your article; but if one wanted to compose a list of "blamees" yours is woefully short. It may have been the heise article where you lauded the "alpha animal" .. suffice it to say that you are very wrong to admire that trait in this larger history.

If you think customers were frustrated I can only say you don't know what frustration is. But real focus must be given to the fact that times are better now; the moves are real and accurate, honed by lessons learned. Real development is happening and for some it is NOT too late but just in time.

#dominoforever .. and forever is a long time.
