OK, this is just a teaser of things my team and I are working on around licensing and packaging of Notes/Domino products for implementation around the time of the new Notes/Domino Social Edition (8.5.4) release:

  • Revised terms for IBM XWork Server. We are trying to simplify the restriction around number of applications/databases, and create a scalable approach to deploying XWork Server as a solution component
  • Address and clarify how to license and support Domino Designer in the context of a Domino Collaboration Express or Domino Utility Express environment
  • Update the entitlement to IBM Connections files and profiles capabilities to the next version of Connections, and make the entitlement easier to utilize
  • Update the entitlement to Tivoli Directory Integrator
  • Update the entitlement to IBM Mobile Connect (in the Domino Enterprise Client Access and CEO Communications licenses)
  • Clarify the entitlement to WebSphere Application Server, specifically pieces like the Network Deployment Edge Component (an effective reverse proxy tool with Lotus iNotes)
  • Continue to refine and clarify our license agreements -- this has been another extensive effort for the new release

Don't ask me yet for details ;-) I'll be talking about these more in the next few weeks/months as we move closer to release. Of course as usual IBM's plans are subject to change, this is not a commitment, etc. Just a teaser :-)
