No LN8 support for DB2 on i5? Common to get answers

Adam Trujillo Profile: Atrujillo

The recent release of Lotus Notes 8 was cause for celebration for many, but not for i5/OS users looking to do some DB2 work with it. According to Domino Blog blogger and IBM Domino product manager Rob Ingram, there are currently no plans to support Notes databases in DB2 on System i. This news is not sitting well and System i user group Common is starting an initiative to get to the bottom of this.

They are currently circulating a System i user survey that will help them build a case to get some answers from IBM. Ingram states in his blog that IBM is currently allocating resources elsewhere, but I just can’t help thinking that this is a move to position Lotus Notes for growth; but at the same time position System i as a legacy platform that will lose full support sometime soon.
