It’s all about the apps:

  • Ongoing discussion from posts of last two weeks – Jon Vaughan et al
  • Now Ed Brill has moved the discussion onto a couple of areas that were mentioned in previous threads – Ways to improve developer resources, and free apps)
  • Will an AppCatalog or AppStore really be the answer?
  • Is OpenNTF the store?
  • Who exactly are we targeting (users, admins, developers, executives)?
  • How can ISVs make Lotus apps easier to consume and deploy?

Questions for Michael (as an analyst):
