Do You Want to Contribute to What Domino V11 Should Be?

Domino V11 Jam

Last year IBM had jams with IBM customers, users, business partners and others to get feedback on what IBM Notes and Domino V10 should contain. Now they are inviting YOU to do the same for V11!

While V10 was a release mostly focusing on the Domino server, so that it could catch up to the modern world, especially when it came to API, JavaScript, Java and administration, V11 will have equal focus on the Notes client. Personally I’ve been part of a group giving feedback on the design of the V11 client, so I know that there’s much happening on that front as well.

IBM describes the upcoming V11 jams like this:

“The main issues that we are currently thinking about are remnants of the first jam:

  • Improved support to the so-called “Citizen Developer” – further simplifying the possibilities of creating apps, so the LOB departmental users can create small apps without being expert programmers, but at the skill level of writing macros for a spreadsheet.
  • Extend e-mail in the direction of “open e-mail” (ie with any client) and make it easier to use with powerful analytics functions.
  • Further optimizing the autonomous features / “lights-out” operations of Domino for superior TCO.

This release will be critically important to many different types of users: Staff in specialist departments, secretarial services, managers, etc. – allowing them to contribute to the digital transformation of their enterprise and proving their value through daily use of the Domino platform in many scenarios.

To understand your thinking better, we will run a series of V11 Jams; An IBM Jam is a method based on the IBM Design Thinking method, which is ideally suited for the structured development of scenarios for specific roles (personas) with a clear practical focus. These jams are about Domino V11 and what should be in it.”

Does this sound exciting? Of course it does. So register now! (You need an IBM ID to register)
