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!

Sametime A/V in the Cloud

Sametime Chat in the cloud now supports video on the iPad and audio on the iPhone! I called product manager, Marc Pagnier today - I think he was logged in from the web client actually. Now you can log into SmartCloud directly with your user name/password and have access to audio and video. Here's my live screenshot from today. Picture quality gets adjusted based on bandwidth.

Connections Mobile Tip of the Day
Fri, Oct 17th 2014 3:45p   Chris Reckling
Here's something you may have missed in the little introductory pop-ups when you first log in to the Connections mobile app. We have a new feature, called Favorites, that let's you, the user, add a link to almost anything in the app to the left navigation. This let's you quickly get back to a community, file, forum, or person that you frequently open on mobile. Rather than navigate to a list of Communities and then scrolling to the one you want, make it a Favorite. Here's the trick (yes, [read] Keywords: connections ldd lotus community mobile

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

Getting a jump on things, last Friday the Sametime Chat app for Android was updated for Sametime 9.

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.

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.
