Mon, Mar 6th 2017 5:29p   Alan Forbes
We are just about a quarter of the way into 2017 and VitalSigns server monitoring has already been creating some buzz within the enterprise collaboration community. The fourth release of VitalSigns became available at the start of the year and has been praised for its beautiful new interface, but more importantly its ability to monitor the entire IBM Collaboration stack.

Impressions of IBM Connect/San Francisco

General IBM News In the spirit of apparent “gamification” IBM announced it would stop issuing certifications in favor of virtual badges. I’m not entirely sure what the difference is, exactly, except that it is supposed to be more fun.   Julian Robicheaux was named the third Lifetime IBM Champion, which is quite an honor for him and well deserved. The IBM team was accessible and many representatives came around the booths asking for feedback.  The mood seemed generally positive about the

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. As anticipated this news had set off a chain-reaction of executive reorganization. The changes transform Cloud as Hybrid Cloud, which now is put under combined Cognitive Solutions and research leadership at IBM. The IBM Cloud was constructed by merging SoftLayer with Watson and its application hosting business. Over the years LeBlanc climbed the ran

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
