IBM Verse On-premises Third Post: Updated Schema, New Features

Preface
In my previous two blog posts pertaining to Verse On-premises (VOP), please note that a few of the items below were covered here previously. This serves as a metric to ascertain what key items are likely to remain. As cited here on July 18, 2016, IBM is fully committed to and on-track to make a year-end release for this product. IBM is discussing a lot of new VOP items at events in multiple cities/countries; for example MWLUG in Austin, TX. Much of what I reported on August 3, 2016 remains true. Below you will find an updated schema along with new features that are being discussed publicly in this blog post.


Disclaimer
Please note that everything in the post is now being discussed in-public by IBM and is provided outside, separate and distinct from any information I gained by being in the Verse On Premises beta program. The slides and content are posted with permission from Uffe Sorensen and Barry Rosen, the ICON UK Presenters.


Foundational Topics of Interest
* Release date is December 2016, which is aligned with my original posts from July and August
* Verse Offline Support - released March 2016, locally encrypted local mail store

Image:IBM Verse On-premises Third Post: Updated Schema, New Features


Help and Learning New Features
* On the Help tab (?), "What's New [x]" let's you know about what changed recently... and the number of new items
* The "?" button will have a red dot next to it when new items are available and then upon selecting the menu option, the program will walk you through the GUI to display the feature(s), plus a pop-up window with the text description of each new feature

Image:IBM Verse On-premises Third Post: Updated Schema, New Features

* Monthly on the IBM Knowledge Center will include new features in the current month, making it easy to create an internal newsletter for your users.


Additional Value
* Consistency with cloud offering
* Secure offline browser access
* No need for a rich client, if you choose
* Domino application access via ICAA or Notes
* Low-bandwidth option for high-latency environments/countries
* Integration and extensibility to match future cloud capabilities; add your applications to the menu (within Compose), business card, and while reading mail, for example; more features and increased options being developed


Schema
New updated architectural schema (which may change again):
* The API is new
* Need Domino 9.0.1 FP7+ -- which provides over 100 fixes, VOP API hooks, NRPC port encryption, and JVM 1.8 runtime upgrade capability
* Connections 5.5 CR1, which is optional, for Files, Profiles, Preview, Business Cards, and Team Analytics

Image:IBM Verse On-premises Third Post: Updated Schema, New Features

* Techline is available for sizing needs; it is akin to an iNotes deployment methodology, which should make Domino administrators very happy.


Future Items
* Prioritized Inbox (1H preview)
* Action support (1H, preview) - system identifies key actions from emails and helps users complete them; partners can configure the system to identify actions from 3rd party solutions
* "Cognitive shown in white"



Image:IBM Verse On-premises Third Post: Updated Schema, New Features

* Bluemix model can be added with cognitive for on-premises but may introduce a future charge - stay tuned; this capability is more complex and thus, the increased design consideration by IBM to get it correct is necessitated
* Future updates for Verse on-premises add-ins: provided via a separate zip file from FPs, but there may be some back-end features deployed through FPs
* Sametime presence awareness under consideration, post-GA
* Language support: English first, then all languages will be provided; VOP will be available in all cloud based languages; future features are dependent upon the language schedule roll-out to teach and code Watson to make it aware of them. English, German, Japanese (funded by two local companies); huge cost to teach a language to Watson, but it is a prerequisite and IBM wants to do this. Thus, VOP is dependent upon Watson for the cognitive aspects

Thanks for reading. Let me know your thoughts. Have a great day!

Do You Have An Opinion on the Domino Application Platform Direction? Read This.
Thu, May 18th 2017 6:15a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
As Barry Rosen mentioned during our Engage session last week, ICS Offering Management is seeking feedback around the Domino application platform. This opportunity is significant enough that I felt it appropriate to author a separate post. Currently, IBM is looking for feedback in the areas of APIs, XPages, Domino on Bluemix, Docker, and well, anything else you want to add in the development space. I took the survey and found it to be straight forward with plenty of opportunity to provide you

Great session last Monday. We filled the table with overflow and discussed many good topics raised by the attendees. Below are the notes and some of the URLs cited during the event. Please feel free to comment and keep the discussion going. IBM Notes FP7 is the last update for the Linux client;, no further feature packs will be offered for the Linux client Support will be best effort from here and will continued to be support up to 9.0.1 FP7 on thee then current set of operating systems.

"Why the Largest Companies in the World Count on Linux Servers"
Tue, May 9th 2017 3:00a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
I read this morning a great piece in Linux Journal by Petros Koutoupis. The author's name being new to me, I read the article with an open mind. What I found is this introductory level article offered a decent dissection of this important topic. As I've covered over the years in my Lotus on Linux Report presentation series, more companies outside of Microsoft use Linux for their edge servers than any other operating system. That data point continues to this day. Additionally, despite recent de

This year at Engage in Antwerp, Belgium, I am speaking with Barry Rosen of IBM and Daniel Nash. We are covering all things ICS related on Linux. Happy to have the opportunity to present with both Barry and Daniel on such a topic. A lot has changed in the past six months with IBM's support for Linux. This is the session to learn about those changes and provide input directly to IBM. Looking forward to a great discussion and learning experience. See you on Monday! Date: Monday, May 8 Time: 11

IBM Think 2018. Bringing together World of Watson and InterConnect to form the technology industry's most important event Great news! I am very excited to report that IBM is doing something excellent with their conferences next year. IBM is combining Connect, InterConnect, World of Watson, PartnerWorld, Edge, Amplify, and Vision all into one massive technology show in 2018. What is this conference called? IBM Think 2018! In my opinion, this is a logical move with IBM recognizing customers a

Linuxfest at IBM Connect 2017
Sat, Feb 18th 2017 10:54p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Hi Everyone! Just a quick update on Linuxfest... As I've been involved since Lotusphere 2010 offering the first two Linux Installfests with Joe Litton, and co-offered Linuxfest at Lotusphere, Connect, and ConnectED ever since, I wanted to take a moment and provide a quick update. Wes Morgan and I had a few conversations on this year's event and the new city. We both concluded with the new development schedule within IBM, the we should skip a year. Thus, Linuxfest VIII will be delayed a y

Notes Domino Templates Get Slated for an Update. Here’s the Roadmap
Mon, Oct 3rd 2016 2:05a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
This is the first of two roadmap posts I authored for release this week. Beyond my post last month where I covered lightly that templates would be upgraded, Barry Rosen provided an updated roadmap with two slides covering just Notes Domino Templates. For simplicity, I copy-pasted the prose from the first slide to make it searchable, and appended the time table slide for the second. Nice to see some progress here too. Nice to see that they are filling in the hole created previously from multiple
