IBM introduce Social Media for Business
Wed, Feb 8th 2012 9:11p   Igor Bubis
Social media and social networking should have already made a big impact on how you communicate with suppliers and customers, how about internal communication and collaboration though?  If you use a product like Lotus notes or other cloud services such as Window’s Office cloud offering or Google Apps you should already be collaborating through the cloud but this is limited in its effectiveness without robust communications.

Lotusphere 2012: Is IBM re-branding Lotus Notes to different colors?
Mon, Jan 16th 2012 9:10p   Igor Bubis
No doubt Lotus Notes email lost the battle to others very unfortunately (intentionally not mentioning the competitor names) for being the most popular email system. Perhaps this is the best what can be done in the current situation, start slowly changing yellow colors  to some other colors (I wish it was not black though) which will not be associated with Lotus Notes nor Domino. I really hope it will help to market the Domino/Notes application server platform to customers that have already mo [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus lotusphere notes application email server

IBM’s Cloud feature packed offering LotusLive could see Lotus rise to prominence again
Sun, Dec 11th 2011 5:11p   Igor Bubis
Picture credit: IBM It is a long time since Lotus Software, owned by IBM since 1995, dominated a market, their Lotus 123 product though was a great spreadsheet package that led to a step change in spreadsheet software and Lotus Notes later did the same. Lotus missed out though when Microsoft Office came along and dominated a market that could have been Lotus’. Lotus and IBM may now though have the chance to steal a march on rivals as cloud computing takes off.

Why IBM XWork Server May Change the World
Wed, Nov 30th 2011 5:09p   Igor Bubis
The IBM XWork server is an IBM Lotus Domino 8.5x server with an entirely different license approach, different packaging, and different branding (installer). If it’s basically the renamed IBM Domino server  then why should small and medium size businesses look into the XWork server solution? First and foremost ,the IBM XWork server is IBM software which means quality and great customer support. Secondary, the IBM XWork server is based on the Lotus Domino technology and therefore Notes an [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus lotusscript notes xpages application applications development email server

Mon, Oct 24th 2011 11:12p   Igor Bubis
Picture credit: IBM What triggered my few nostalgic thoughts about Lotus Notes this evening was a blog post published in Nevermind.dk  ”Lotus Notes and Domino have been able to survive for 20 years, how?”. Once well known as Lotus Notes, a widely popular collaboration and email platform has been experiencing tough times during the past few years. It seems that IBM has given up on Notes as an email platform while the entire world is going totally Microsoft.

IBSI, Innovative Business Systems aren’t exactly a new company: they are well known for their computer support services and lotus notes support in Tampa Florida, this is by no means all they do though and a new website for the business is set to be launched in order to make it easier for Florida businesses and businesses further afield to see what IBSI do as well as how they do it.

Konica Minolta rebuild Business process management system with Open Source option

Konica-Minolta sell much of their hardware at the higher end of the market, in fact much of it they lease as is common with more expensive equipment for businesses large and small. Leasing may work well for both Konica Minolta as an alternative to financing and work well for clients who do not wish to invest in expensive equipment that they may soon have to replace. Konica Minolta though do have to manage the customers’ leases for the 100,000 or so pieces of equipment that are hired. This mean [read] Keywords: lotus notes applications email facebook twitter

Tue, Mar 29th 2011 10:09p   Igor Bubis
Photo credit: IBM IBM has announced today availability of the IBM Lotus Domino Utility Server for LotusLive. This is a really great news for Notes and LotusLive community. No more headache with administering your Lotus Domino server, not more headache (I assume) with backups, security and hardware issues. The IBM Cloud will take care of it all. The only question remains what is the pricing model. According to IBM  the new license model is based on the Domino Utility Server and allows you, a [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes notes client applications community email facebook security server twitter

What IBM Needs to Do to Retain its Lotus Notes Customers

I wish I knew what is going at the IBM head quarters in regards to this topic. I got a bit disappointed when I saw a news post “Steinhoff drops Lotus Notes …”  confirming that 1,050 Lotus Notes seats will be replaced by Microsoft’s BOPS and not by LotusLive Cloud  solution. When I see news like that I a good number of questions comes to my mind.

Get Certification if You Plan to Resell Lotus Notes
Sun, Feb 13th 2011 3:24p   Igor Bubis
Based on CRN, IBM will require training and certification for resellers of a number of the vendors’s Lotus messaging and collaboration products, channel partners were  told at Lotusphere 2011 conference in Orlando earlier this month. Great idea IBM! I m 100% agree that Lotus messaging resellers need to be competent in what they are reselling. This would save a few customers moving of Notes as a messaging platform in 2010. IBM actually lost near 3% Lotus Notes revenue in 2010. This numbe [read] Keywords: collaboration domino ibm lotus lotusphere notes symphony email facebook mobile outlook twitter

Lotusphere 2011: LotusLive is a Direction Small Business Needs to Follow

The Lotusphere 2011 was closed on 2/3/11 and I am still trying to organize my thoughts on a lot if information presented at the conference. The first thought that come to my mind is the Lotusphere’s 1 slogan “Go Social. Do Business”. It well defines the latest trend across all industry segments and applies to all size companies. Products and services that are socially marketed have been outperforming product and services  marketed by the old and conventional methods.

History of Lotus Notes
Sun, Jan 9th 2011 12:16p   Igor Bubis
Lotus Notes has a history spanning more than 20 years. Its chief inspiration was PLATO Notes, created by David Woolley at the University of Illinois in 1973. In today’s terminology, PLATO Notes was a message board, and it was part of the foundation for an online community which thrived for more than 20 years on the PLATO system. Ray Ozzie worked with PLATO while attending the University of Illinois in the 1970s.

Just came across a post in regards to moving away from Lotus Notes email.
