OGS Demos Part 3
Chris Reckling    

Continuing my series of blog posts on what actually was demo'd during the Opening General Session at Lotusphere 2012.

Between the "Ron demo" on mobile apps, and the "Brian demo" covering the Customer Experience Suite and inject social everywhere, Kurt De Ruwe from Bayer talked about their experiences in deploying Connections in order to "take advantage of all of their collective knowledge and expertise".

Some other good quote from Mr. De Ruwe:
"We wanted to create a culture where sharing is encouraged and where we have a mindset that stimulates the innovation process."

"Based on the early results of the deployment we expect to see a quick adoption across the organization with immediate benefits coming from the new way of interacting with peers around the globe."

Larry Bowden introduced the next set of demos, done by Mr. Brian Cheng, aka Mr. Energy. Larry's theme can be summed up here: "you need to deliver engaging, seamlessly integrated, experiences  -- across all channels ...at all times.....and all devices." The big announcement was for IBM Customer Experience Suite Next beta release.

Brian's demo was section into 2 parts, the first part on the iPad and the second on the desktop. He showed how you could take content and manage it from your device or desktop.

The site shown on the iPad. Customer Experience Suite helps you get the content out to multiple devices. Brian showed how you could add new content (a Mussels Marinara recipe and video). "All the tools I need to create and manage my content are at my fingertips...literally." "All of my digital assets can be stored and versioned in my ECM system."

Brian went from mobile content owner, to line of business user by donning his jacket. He show how you could create a metrics dashboard with integrated sentiment analysis from Cognos Consumer Insight. "This gives a new level of insight using technology driven social analytics." Taking analytic information and then acting on it is the next step.

Moving over the company's external web site, you can see the video that was added from the iPad, also being pushed to this site.

The external Greenwell site with metric overlays showing page views per area.

After showing an e-commerce site, the next major part of the demo showed how to add communities to the site, using a content template. This allows you to link communities directly to the site page.

The community page added to the main site navigation with portlets linked to the Connections community of your choice. In summary, Brian summarized, "The customer experience suite and the intranet experience makes it easy for my mobile employees, business executives, and content owners to easily filter Big Data to gain customer insight, discover problem areas to act upon, and reach and engage customers to develop better products faster."

And that's the end of Brian's demo of Customer Experience Suite. A lot was packed into those 12 minutes!

What? New Companion and To Do Apps? YES.
Fri, May 9th 2014 2:25p   Chris Reckling
I told you more apps were coming, updated for iOS 7! Today IBM released Traveler Companion and Traveler To Do's to the Apple app store. These were updated to align with new guidelines for iOS 7 (featuring a beautiful new design) and a handful of bug fixes, as reported by customers. Traveler Companion is available so you can read and send encrypted mail on the device (since we cannot build this into the Apple mail client). It also enforces certain admin policies such as how attachments are ha [read] Keywords: admin ibm inotes ldd lotus notes policies traveler apple bug server

Sametime Meetings app for iOS Updated
Mon, Apr 21st 2014 3:25p   Chris Reckling
Today IBM released an update to the Sametime Meetings app. This release updates the UI to be more in line with iOS 7 guidelines. Check it out. When we started this process, we decided to go for a lighter, friendlier tone than before. Here is what the main entrance screen looks like now - what we call the 'lobby'. From here you can launch straight into your meeting room. And once you are in a room, you can focus on the content at hand for the meeting.

Orlando, FL, also known as Lake Buena Vista, or on my phone location as Bay Lake...Wednesday morning, January 29. It's hump day at IBM Connect - that means the Wednesday night party happened on Tuesday this year at the Hollywood Studios. Everything is turned around! It's been great meeting customers and friends from over the years both in the hallways and in our Design Studio on site in Asia 4. If you are at Connect and haven't made it to the lab, then why not today?? Most people enjoy spendi [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm ldd lotus sametime mobile vista

IBM Connect is just around the corner - yikes! Once again, the user experience and info management teams will have a lab in Asia 4, to the left of the elevators to the partner showcase - also known as, 'the same place as the previous years'. IBM Design Thinking is a big emphasis for us this year and indeed, across all of IBM. We will have a number of activities in the studio for you to participate in, as well as the usual one on one feedback sessions we typically do.

Getting a jump on things, last Friday the Sametime Chat app for Android was updated for Sametime 9. The new apps add audio and video chats so now you can easily move from text chatting to a richer communication mode. Congratulations to Tyler (our designer) and the dev team for getting this out to the market. Here are a couple of screenshots of the app for tablets and phones. Dare I note that you must be running Sametime 9 with the appropriate server pieces enabled? You can try it if you ha [read] Keywords: ibm ldd lotus sametime google server wiki

Connections Mobile 4.4 Now Available
Tue, Oct 1st 2013 8:22a   Chris Reckling
Last Friday, IBM released updates to the Connections mobile apps for Android and iOS. The main new features include a much better Media Gallery and Wikis experience. (Android already had the wikis done, so this part is only new on iOS.) Here are a couple of screens to give you an idea of what it's like. It's a much more immersive experience than we've done before and works well in both tablet and phone form factors.

IBM Connections + IBM Docs Mobile = A Match
Sun, Jul 21st 2013 4:02p   Chris Reckling
Exciting news! You can now access IBM Docs on your iPad from within the Connections app. You can create and edit documents and view spreadsheets or presentations created with IBM Docs on the desktop. All of the files stay within the Connections app on the device, which removes the worry about information being sent to other apps and potentially to an insecure place. To get started, you will need to download and update the Connections iOS app from the Apple App Store. Then log in to either IB [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus apple desktop mobile

Littleton, MA - Another month, another update to the IBM Connections mobile apps for iOS and Android. There are a number of improvements in this release. In addition to the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, here are a few of the feature updates: Simplified FIles list - there is now a tab at the bottom of the list to switch between Files and Folders.

Sametime Meetings Mobile Configuration URLs
Thu, May 30th 2013 9:06a   Chris Reckling
Sametime Meetings is an excellent client! You should try it. It works on Greenhouse, SmartCloud (4-digit meeting ids), and your own on premises install of Sametime. One problem we seek to solve for end users is that pesky server setup and configuration step - you know, the first step you have to do in most cases (although you can join SmartCloud meetings anonymously if allowed). Like our other mobile apps, there's an easy solution for admins and help desks. The setup task can be done by the [read] Keywords: ibm ldd lotus notes sametime apple email mobile password server
