Welcome to the Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Completely remove all of the old stack from Connections by version 7.0

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 :

  1. The recommended upgrade scenario is side-by-side and their current infrastructure consist of 7 VM.
  2. Extra hardware needed for the component pack

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).
