Premier Foods: Goodbye IBM Notes

United Kingdom’s largest food producer and manufacturer, Premier Foods, is dropping IBM Notes and Domino for Google Apps for Business. … Premier Foods has made a significant investment in Google Apps for Business, dropping Lotus Notes for its 5000 strong user base. The motivation here was to increase the ability to collaborate across multiple sites, including […]

Amazon Web Services and What it Means to IBM
Wed, Apr 29th 2015 2:38p   Gregg Eldred
Cringely has used the recent Amazon Web Services announcement of their revenue and expenses and spun it back into IBM ‘s cloud play. Interesting read. The other way to make money is to sell support services with the cloud.  Of all the cloud providers IBM is best positioned to sell support services with its cloud.  […]

Amazing Replication Statistics
Mon, Apr 27th 2015 1:44p   Gregg Eldred
I think there is something “wrong” with this screen. Can’t really put my finger on it, just that it seems to be “off” by a bit. All I did was to replicate one database.

IBM Verse: Day Two Usage

Yesterday, I reported my experience with IBM Verse after (finally) being provisioned. Today, I am happy to report that, once I log in to Verse, I see this: This is the experience in Firefox 37.0.1. Yesterday, I was on an unsupported browser. Today, it’s supported. What changed? That is a great question. What I can […]

IBM Verse: Day One Usage

IBM has (finally) provisioned my Verse Basic account. How did Day One of Verse go for me? Attempt One to log on to Verse resulted in this: Hmm, refresh the browser. Now, I see the login page. Again.

IBM Verse: It’s Started for Me

Nearly three months have passed since I signed up for the Verse program. Today was a milestone as I received an e-mail from IBM with a link to create my Verse Basic account. Let the fun begin.

It’s Your Fault Cybercrime is Getting Easier
Thu, Apr 9th 2015 2:43p   Gregg Eldred
Interesting article from The Register. . . . Around one in three (30 per cent) of end-users click through a malicious URL in an email even though they have been warned of the danger. “End users are increasingly desensitised from the warnings, don’t feel responsible and still lack enterprise-driven education,” according to Websense.

Old is New: Muting Threads or Conversations in IBM Verse
Thu, Apr 2nd 2015 11:36a   Gregg Eldred
I was reminded this week that people have short attention spans. IBM has released IBM Verse and one of the major features that IBM tours is muting threads or conversations in e-mail. That is, basically, if you are tired of being on an e-mail thread, you can “mute” it so that it does not appear. […]

CloudPro: Amazon WorkMail vs IBM Notes: Will it be a knockout fight?
Wed, Feb 4th 2015 8:09p   Gregg Eldred
You see, here’s the thing: no matter what you hear/see at an IBM event or from your IBM representative, there seems to be a disconnect between that message and the one you read on the internet. A chasm, if you will. The public cloud market has coalesced around three big players: Amazon, Google and Microsoft […]

IBM ConnectED 2015: A Few Problems
Fri, Dec 12th 2014 1:00p   Gregg Eldred
After giving this topic some thought, and soliciting some comments, it isn’t news that IBM has a few image problems with ConnectED. One could make the argument that these problems started a couple of years ago. As it is, this being the last (IMHO) conference for this particular IBM software group in Orlando, here are a few problems with ConnectED 2015: If you change the name of something, you will instantly lose a percentage of the customers you had attending. Remember all that goodwill,

Forbes: How to Fix IBM
Fri, Oct 24th 2014 8:03a   Gregg Eldred
I’ve been waiting for this article, since IBM announced that they were abandoning their 2015 plan (I think that a lot of people were calling it “Death March 2015″). The money quote comes early in the article: IBM forgot the most important part of running a business.  While shareholder value is important, it is customers that make business possible. On Global Services: IBM’s Global Services have seen the worst cost cuts and the most layoffs.  These cuts have hurt many of IBM

iOS 8 and Traveler
Tue, Sep 9th 2014 7:13a   Gregg Eldred
A new TechNote, published yesterday, outlines iOS 8 and Traveler issues/responses. The good news: If you are currently on Traveler 8.5.3 UP2 or later, you are ready. If you’re on Traaveler 9.0.1 IF5 or IF6, you are really ready (those versions recognize iOS 8 devices). But watch the TechNote for notification of any Interim Fix that addresses iOS 8 specific issues.

Golf as “Exercise?”
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 2:20p   Gregg Eldred
Last week, from Thursday to Saturday, I was again asked to play in an annual Ryder Cup. It pits a team from Ohio against one from Michigan (Ohio State versus Michigan/Michigan State, or more accurately, friends from the states of Michigan and Ohio). I, again, played on the Michigan team. They need me to round out the number of players and also, so that I can play with my friend, Steve. The format is Thursday, 36 holes, Friday, 36 holes, Saturday, 18 holes. Or, 90 holes in 3 days. The actual tour

A Lesson From Riding New Mexico and Colorado
Wed, Jul 9th 2014 10:40a   Gregg Eldred
This past weekend, I took an opportunity to ride New Mexico and Colorado. Let me first say that to prepare for travel, you look at the weather forecast in northwest New Mexico and see that it will be 98°F (36.6°C). You then bring the proper gear for such a temperature. This means: half helmet, sunglasses, mesh armored jacket, Kevlar and armored riding jeans, and light gloves. You allow a family member, who also rides, to decide on the route. Through the good graces of the father-in-law-to-be,

Dash4Dosh 2014: Let’s All Laugh
Mon, Jun 9th 2014 2:00p   Gregg Eldred
For your enjoyment, some random pictures from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. First up, Chris pitching his tent. Yes, the photo looks grainy, but that isn’t the fault of the photographer, it was raining. In an epic fashion. Doesn’t he look happy that he will be “sleeping” in a tent? I found Paul’s toilet in a Statoil station: And Paul’s bike: The Arctic Circle, Sweden: Chris, in his natural pose, taking photos (at the Sweden/Norway border): And photograp

Dash4Dosh 2014: A Quick Overview
Sun, Jun 8th 2014 3:20p   Gregg Eldred
There will probably be a few blog posts concerning this adventure over the coming weeks. This post is simply a quick overview. Stuff I brought but didn’t need: Flashlights. I brought three little LED flashlights but didn’t use any of them. Thankfully, they didn’t take up hardly any room at all. Ben’s Wipes. Brought two packages of these excellent tick and insect repellent wipes but only used two wipes. Total. Leatherman. While I didn’t use it, there is no way I wou
