I assume everyone received the email (below) from Jeff Stanier this morning regarding LCCS being shut down for good at the end of the year. My question is what everyone is doing in the face of this news?

We've built a large part of our company on LCCS and are scrambling for a solution that we can implement to replace LCCS before the end of the year. There was no transition plan or any details at all given in the email.

Any other LCCS users discussing transition plans? Is there any opportunity for us to collaborate so that those of us dependent on LCCS aren't totally left in the cold?

Much appreciated,

Ion

      


  Dear LCCS Customer,
 
I am writing to inform you of Adobe‚s plan with respect to LiveCycle Collaboration Services (LCCS).  Due to recent changes in Adobe‚s strategic direction the decision has been made to end of life the LCCS product. Adobe will continue to provide LCCS production service for an additional 9 months until December 31, 2012.  At that time the service will be shut down.  Beginning March 23, 2012 the following changes will be made to the service:
  • In order to support your continued patronage while we ramp down the service, Pay Per Usage (PPU) accounts will no longer be charged and a free account quota of $1000/month will be granted. As a result of this change, monthly billing statements will no longer be issued.
  • Free subscribers will no longer be able to upgrade to a PPU account.
  • No new accounts will be created.
  We apologize for any inconvenience the termination of the service causes you. Thank you for being an Adobe LiveCycle Collaboration Services customer.

it indeed sounds like they just don't care.  it is unspeakably irresponsible to pull the plug like this.

jeff, i know you're only the messenger here, so no hostility toward you at all.  but can you please speak to the possibility of migrating LCCS to a partner who would be willing to maintain the service?
