Lotus Notes upgrade workshops
Darren    

My frolleague Matt Newton is running a series of Notes upgrade workshops during September and October. With Notes / Domino 8.5.2 available this week there’s never been a better time to look at upgrading a back-version infrastructure, to take advantage of the attractive and highly-functional Notes client and the many improvements on the Domino server (many of which will contribute to lowering the cost of ownership). To quote the invite…

The Notes & Domino 8.5.x upgrade workshop is intended to provide the customer with an in-depth examination of the new capabilities of version 8.5.x. For existing customers, this exploration will help them assess the additional value and potential impact to their existing environment. For new customers, this exploration will give them an invaluable insight into Notes & Domino 8.5.x.  At the conclusion of the workshop, the customer will leave with an excitement about the business problems this new version can help solve.

Sounds good? Okay, here’s the dates and locations for these free-of-charge events…

  • Wednesday 29th September – IBM Warwick
  • Tuesday 5th October – IBM Staines
  • Wednesday 6th October – IBM Manchester
  • Tuesday 12th October – IBM Edinburgh

Interested? E-mail Matt using matt dot newton at uk.ibm.com – or leave a comment here and I’ll pass your details on.

All aboard the Camberley Express
Fri, Feb 28th 2014 2:11p   Darren Adams
Sitting on the train to Farnborough this evening I felt compelled to put fingers to keyboard while I was ‘in the mood’ for it. “Farnborough?” you may ask… but I live in Camberley. Okay, this is what it’s all about. I live ten minutes’ walk from Camberley station. This factor forms part of the pros and cons equation. The train service to and from Camberley is not the best on the South West Trains network. There are three direct trains from Camberley to Waterloo in the morning, and t [read] Keywords: facebook interface javascript linkedin microsoft network twitter widgets

Power BI app for Windows 8.1
Thu, Feb 27th 2014 4:11p   Darren Adams
In late December I blogged about the Power Query add-in for Excel 2013, and mentioned that Excel is an important part of Microsoft’s strategy for Business Intelligence. BI in general is very much a hot topic in customer conversations. Power BI for Office 365 recently became available, and I’ll cover that in detail another time, but now we’re going to take a look at the Power BI app for Windows 8.1. As I mentioned before, Excel’s Power tools take care of the various stages of BI, and Powe [read] Keywords: facebook interface javascript linkedin microsoft office sharepoint twitter widgets

Microsoft Project Siena
Wed, Feb 19th 2014 5:12p   Darren Adams
Most Windows 8 (or 8.1) users would look at the apps on their start screen and assume that they couldn’t build one themselves. Many people would be wrong, as Microsoft’s Project Siena app sets out to help those people who’d like to build an app but have almost no development skills. If you understand the data you might be working with, that’s an advantage, as is a good knowledge of Excel function syntax. So what is Project Siena? Project Siena is itself a Windows 8.1 app [read] Keywords: development facebook javascript linkedin microsoft mobile sharepoint twitter widgets

Super Calendar for Windows Phone
Tue, Feb 18th 2014 7:10a   Darren Adams
Ever since the days of the Palm devices, developers have been coming up with better versions of the applications (‘apps’, as we call them these days) which are native to the devices. Many moons ago I remember acquiring a calendar app that was better than the one supplied with the Palm OS. Times have not changed. The native calendar app on Windows Phone is fine, it does all that it should… or does it? A quick search in the Windows Phone app store reveals many alternatives.

Selling a car privately
Fri, Jan 3rd 2014 10:12a   Darren Adams
Almost twenty years ago I achieved something that was to lift a great burden from my shoulders – I became eligible for a company car. Since then the government have done everything in their power to make opting for a company car a less attractive proposition – if they could ensure that electing to take a company car would result in an eternity in Hell I think they would – but there’s one big thing that keeps me browsing the range of permitted company vehicles time after t [read] Keywords: facebook javascript linkedin twitter widgets

The BBC Breakfast ‘local’ news
Fri, Jan 3rd 2014 7:11a   Darren Adams
Actually there’s two things that annoy me about the BBC news in the morning. One is that weather presenter woman (Carol, I think) who says “guuud morneeeng” and then smiles inanely while she delivers a forecast that we’d be able to look back on a day later and say “well, she got that wrong again”. But mainly it’s about the way the local news is announced. Every morning they say “but now the news, traffic and weather where YOU are”… and [read] Keywords: facebook javascript linkedin twitter widgets

People who park in the pick-up point
Fri, Jan 3rd 2014 7:11a   Darren Adams
My supermarket of choice at nearby Watchmoor Park has an area which is adorned with the words ‘pick-up point’ in big white letters and has some double-yellow lines for extra clarification. Actually, I’m unsure of the actual painted words because they always have cars parked on top of them. But I do know for sure the words don’t say “park here if you’re lazy”. Yes folks, the pick-up point – which I assume is there to allow people to drive into, pick [read] Keywords: facebook javascript linkedin twitter widgets

Strictly Come Dancing
Fri, Jan 3rd 2014 6:12a   Darren Adams
I’m going to assume that you don’t need an explanation of what Strictly Come Dancing is. If you hail from the United States of America, you’ll probably know the format through ‘Dancing With The Stars’. If you’re Estonian you’ll know it as ‘Kuulsused Teeme Tantsu Asi On Väga Hea’. What’s my problem with Strictly Come Dancing? It’s not Brucie (I like Sir Bruce and his jolly catchphrases).

Power Query for Excel 2013
Mon, Dec 30th 2013 1:11p   Darren Adams
If you have Office 2013 Professional (or Pro Plus, which is part of certain Office 365 offerings), you’ll be entitled to use a set of business intelligence add-ins for Excel 2013 which I refer to as the Power Tools. The full set consists of: Power Pivot – pivot tables on steroids, providing advanced data modelling and deep analysis and reporting Power View – presentation and exploration of results (dashboards) Power Map – visual representation of location-based data on m [read] Keywords: database db2 facebook javascript linkedin microsoft office oracle server sharepoint sql twitter widgets xml

Dell Venue 8 Pro
Fri, Dec 27th 2013 12:11p   Darren Adams
Poor Mrs A, she does struggle for what to get me for Christmas. I’m generally not a wanty person. But not this year… although it would be unwise to mention the words ‘Xbox One’ in our house (that’s a story for another time). There were a few things on my Christmas list but at the top was a little piece of technology… the Dell Venue 8 Pro. I first saw the Venue 8 Pro a few weeks ago at a device showcase event in the office.
