Something I have been trying out on my Lenovo ThinkPad tablet, which has found a new lease of life since the Ice Cream Sandwich update, is TouchDown HD for tablets. This is a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync client and provides full access to email, calendar, and contacts, as well as synchronising the photos you might have of your contacts.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong as such with the default Lotus Traveler clients for Android, and by all accounts they’ll get better and better over time. However, it’s a straightforward job to set up TouchDown for Lotus Traveler. Here are the steps I followed:
Don’t use Auto Discovery of the server information – it won’t work.
Use your email address as your user name and your usual internet password.
Use server.acme.com/servlet/traveler as the server address.
There’s a free trial available so help yourself and see if you prefer it over the standard IBM Lotus Traveler client.

Fri, Feb 22nd 2013 3:10p Alan Hamilton Lew Platt, HP. “If only HP knew what HP knows, we’d be three times more productive.”
Much is discussed these days about Big Data and the role of Predictive Analytics to help create better business decisions and provide information from data. How would it be, however if we could apply Predictive Analytics to knowledge?
What I am getting at here is the role that Predictive Analytics can play in recommending information to you, suggesting next steps for you in a business process, co [read] Keywords: connections
