As a business partner, we find it hard to sell the current version of Connections because customer need to provide 2 kind of hardware (one for WAS and another for the Component Pack). In fact we have one customer who repeatedly delay their planned upgrade because :
Since Sametime team has proven that it is possible to commit to removing everything related to WAS and DB2 in about a year, can the Connections team commit to do the same ? Having a clear timeline would greatly benefit both customer (they see a clear technical vision), HCL (can prioritise development along that vision) and Business Partner (we can focus on the future stack).
