Defects on images found in the wild
Wed, Aug 16th 2017 9:01p   Ben Langhinrichs
As part of our Defect Detection feature, we encounter and usually fix a number of different defects in images. The following list is the different scenarios we detect which cause any issue with extracting or rendering the images. Of these 31, at least 27 have been encountered in actual customer documents. The other four are left in because they might be some day. While none of these problems are common, some are likely to be encountered in any large data repository, especially in mail which has

Defect detection in Notes documents
Tue, Aug 15th 2017 5:53p   Ben Langhinrichs
Tomorrow, we are releasing a new version of all three of our CoexLinks products, CoexLinks Fidelity, CoexLinks Migrate and CoexLinks Journal. Aside from other features and bug fixes, they will share a new feature called Defect Detection. While the challenge for most document rendering (to MIME in this case) is faithfully reproducing the content of the email and including the envelope information in the desired form, some Notes emails have corruptions and defects which make the job harder. There

Asking questions to better understand your data
Fri, Jul 21st 2017 7:56p   Ben Langhinrichs
Most IBM Notes/Domino customers who have used the products for a number of years have vast stores of data, but when they want to try to glean new insights, they are stymied by how to handle the data mining. Simple fields which map well to views are easy to extract, and are often relatively "clean", meaning that the value is what the value says it should be. But real applications, especially those built for internal use, often reflect a far more complex set of relationships. They may use paren

Are we responsible for idiots%3F

As software vendors or application developers or anyone else who documents software or processes, we often face the need to come up with an example. The goal of almost any example or documentation is to be simple enough for the uninitiated to grasp while being complex enough to show the possibilities. This is often accomplished with more than one example, so that we can show both how easy it is with one example and how powerful and flexible it is with another. But there is an interesting questi

Speaking at MWLUG 2017 on data analytics and visualization

I'm excited to announce I'll be speaking at MWLUG 2017 in Alexandria, VA on data analytics, extraction and visualization. Finding the Gold in Them Thar HillsThey say everyone should visit their own region as a tourist, with eyes wide open to the treasures visitors see easily which we no longer notice. Likewise, those who have used IBM Notes/Domino for many years may not easily see the value embedded in data buried in various databases over these years. Patterns, trends, connections, all hidde

CoexLinks Migrate - export mail db in seconds
Thu, Jun 8th 2017 9:48p   Ben Langhinrichs
More than 17,500 documents in 110 seconds. With a simple command from the server console, CoexLinks Migrate exports all email documents from a Notes email database into MBOX or EML format, both standards-based formats used by many email products as well as data warehouses and email vaults. Our high speed engine renders even complex rich text emails with high fidelity and accuracy. But why not try for yourself. Request an evaluation license today. As usual, closed captions are available.

Mitigating risk in Domino migrations
Tue, May 23rd 2017 4:31p   Ben Langhinrichs
"After a migration, it is essential that the original content, context and intent are clear, as there is usually little recourse to checking the original source. In our experience, approximately 5‒10% of emails suffer from some form of fidelity issues, while 1‒2% suffer serious data loss or corruption due to rendering issues. These numbers may range much higher for organizations who have a long history of integrating Notes mail with their applications." - Mitigating Risk of Data Lo

Reseller opportunities

If you work with customer/client companies who currently use or are moving away from IBM Domino, and you might be interested in reselling any of our CoexLinks products, don't hesitate to contact me. Opportunities available in most regions of the world. If you work for an email vault or data warehouse company which might be interested in expanding to ingest Domino emails, either archived or live, from client companies, I'd be interested in talking with you as well. CoexLinks Fidelity is for ou

I posted this over on Facebook, but though I'd share it here as well. We've been doing some performance tuning on CoexLinks Migrate, which let's you export your email, both MIME and rich text, to high fidelity standardized formats including MBOX and EML and Exchange Mail Journal Envelope format (basically a wrapped up EML file with all the recipients and such in an envelope. Performance tuning is fun, but it isn't sexy. You take Software A which creates End Product B, work incredibly hard t

One chance to make a last impression

A new CoexLinks Migrate customer had an interesting observation about why they signed on. For several years, their users have forwarded documents from different databases as snapshots to be saved by their manager. No embedded form or anything, just a standard Notes feature, Actions - Forward. Since the manager had a Notes client, they thought nothing of it. But when they went to migrate all this mail out of Notes (meeting requirements for retention), they discovered that critical data was missin
