Yesterday IBM held a presentation about the continuous road map for Notes. Highlights: Cloud customers, you are no longer forgotten and you will get all the good stuff! Oh, and: Bye, bye Eclipse. Bye, bye Xpages. Bye, bye iNotes and hello IBM Verse on Premise. Bye, bye Verse app on Mobile and hello lightweight web-version for mobile. Hello different Notes clients. Read all about it here.
Or when was the last time the Domino server talked to you? Never, you say? With Domino 10 and the new APIs, this is possible! See an awesome how Luis Guirigay not only does Domino administration with his voice, but also how he can book holiday time and meetings as well.
UPDATE! Last week a friend of mine asked me if I could try and find out where the IBM Connections plugin for Microsoft Outlook had gone. It was no longer available as a download in the IBM Collaboration Solutions Catalog. Turns out it has been pulled!
A lot of worries were calmed, especially for Cloud customers and Xpages developers, during the Domino V11 Jam in Stockholm. And there were great ideas and discussions. Read all about the event here.
After knowing about this for almost three months, I can finally go public about the rumors that have been flying among ICS customers for quite a while: IBM is giving up on IBM Watson Workspace.
On Monday January 21st IBM is hosting a jam in Stockholm where IBM Domino customers and IBM business partners are invited to give their feedback on what V11 of Notes/Domino should contain. Tell me what YOU want me to say and ask for!
If you are looking for arguments about why you should stay on, or maybe even move to, Domino? Look no further than here!
