After two years of heading the cloud division, and 36 years with IBM, Cloud senior vice president, Robert LeBlanc will be retiring from the company.

Happy Birthday, Lotus Notes
Tue, Dec 13th 2016 6:16p   Alan Forbes
This week was the 32nd anniversary of the start of Lotus Notes. What is amazing is the context. In December 1984 the IBM PC was only 3 years old. No GUI. No real networking.  I remember my first job with a Lotus Business partner we had to bring network cards that plugged into the parallel port plus our own hub and cables whenever we wanted to do a demo. Decades later, this same core gets another major innovation (for those not in this space, we are shipping a new web UI for Notes email “V

Meet the Hyderabad development team
Wed, Mar 9th 2016 4:43p   Alan Forbes
I spent last week in Hyderabad, India where I was able to meet (in person, finally) and work with our off-shore team.  We have  developers based in Arizon, Texas, and New Jersey in the states and we have both QA and developers in Hyderabad.   Until you really meet the people and see their world, you don’t really understand it. There are some very talented people on our team and I am happy that I was able to meet them in person. From left to right is Joe, Avinash, Sunil, Mounika, Anusha
