Add IBM i to a supported platform for Verse On Prem (VOP)

Please add IBM i as a supported platform for Verse On Premises, aka Verse On Prem, aka VOP.

Use Case:

Currently they only support Linux and Windows. These are good operating systems for proof of concept and development however we would like a more robust platform for VOP. That, and VOP requires all mail files to be replicated to the VOP server. This is an extensive amount of space and other concerns.

    With the recent agreement between IBM and HCL, we will definitely not be able to deliver this by mid 2019, so decline it.

    We will need to get the ICS(a.k.a Lotus) Offering management team's agreement to enable this for IBM i.

    CAAC member quote: "As a Domino on-prem client, I need Verse on-prem as I will not move to the cloud."

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority requirement that should be addressed.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
