I didn't go to Lotusph - IBM Connected 2015. I think I had something to contribute, but I couldn't think of something to take away & learn from it. So. Skipped. I looked through the tweets. It looked like a nice celebration. But I'm kinda focused on making Domino do things that other system software doesn't do at all. Or takes 10-20 times the effort to do.
And it's pretty easy to find these things Domino can do; faster, and more integrated. I'm extending some apps in a support role, storing user information in a cleaner format, so the people who manage their data can track what's happening on their servers, who can see what, now & earlier, and what brought users to have the abilities they have. It involves far more than Domino's own data. Oracle and Windows also rate tracking now, don't they. Any business can benefit from quicker and cleaner display of relevant usage data.
As usual I'm kinda torn over XPages. It's great that it can do almost everything Notes can do, and it can do it over Web. It's not great the amount of time it takes. It's absolutely wonderful that it can support tablets and smartphones, though. Some things need that footprint.
I'm not as enamored of Domino trying to crack the business social software market. It is supremely capable of integrating data, and then pushing it out in formats that lend themselves to social. But it's no more limited to social than Oracle is; it just does it better than Oracle.
Decades back Notes & Domino was labeled "the integrating platform". It's still the integrating platform. It really does this best. And by "best" I mean the most useful combination of extendability of software, and speed to production, not "fits every dream of every manager."
