Better late than never…
admin    

Here we are. The Informica Blog.

Who is behind this?

My Name is Christian Tillmanns and I am one of the founders of Informica of Switzerland. The other can present himself.

Another Blog, my god, was that necessary?

Duno. Is there already a blog about IBM Smart Business stuff? Nope. Don’t think so. We are the first.

Why the heck IBM Smart Business?

You will find out.

Only smart Business? How boring.

I can and will probably annoy you with other stuff. I am sure you always wanted to discuss the ball and string problem, settling with power or RSV and the 72 degrees offset on the R22/44.

… oh, BTW, IBM Smart Business and Lotus Foundations. Have I told you allready, that this blog is running on a Lotus Foundations Appliance?

Pretty easy to setup, once you know how to. Since I hate adminstration with a passion you only can dream of, it normaly takes me a very long time to figure out everything. For administrative stuff I have a very short attention span. That’s why you will see this blog changing constantly, while I find out, what I can do with it.

Now, how to setup a WordPress blog on Lotus Foundations.

1. Create a team for the blog. I choose … who would believe it … blog.

2. Create a Virtual Webserver: Webserver => Virtual Webserver Tab => Add virtual Webserver and fil in the URL, you can leave the IP address and choose the team.

3. Copy the downloaded WordPress Files in the www folder of your blog team.

4. RTFM from here

There is a slight problem with the autoinstallation of themes, but there is probably a solution for this.

There are not many occasions when IBM has amazed me recently but yesterday that was the case. I attended IBM Connect in Switzerland – organized by the partners Belsoft, Cross Works, GIS, TimeToAct, WebGate and Avnet, probably paid by IBM through co-marketing money, whatever – and I saw Scott Souder for the first time in person. That man lives a dangerous live. But first things first. As ever I enjoyed Louis Richardson. At least in his presentation one stays awake.

There is somebody hovering around the Social Business User Group who is trying to sell Office 365 desperately. Last time it was under the name of a british actress, this time it’s interior design: Grace Lilly. This time he/her/it/them even went as far to build their own WordPress blog. Quick thing, they just installed it and did no customization at all. Will probably disappear in no time, too.

I can’t get it out of my head. While I like what I saw in Scott’s and Kramer’s presentation (and I get more and more the impression Ed’s shoes are probably too small for them), I think we are somehow going in circles. The Mail Next concept is really cool. No doubt about that. IBM got to the point (already a while ago), where they realized, that users don’t want to get out of their inbox. It is today the epicenter of the work. Bringing the other applications to the [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes applications email microsoft openntf outlook server

Notes Next anyone? Connectosphere OGS and Mail Next presentation
Tue, Jan 28th 2014 8:30a   Christian Tillmanns
I watched the OGS yesterday. First: For some reason we were not allowed to see a live stream of some guy named Seth Meyers. I had to google him, to find out that he is some actor and does something with Saturday Night Life. I don’t think that IBM has something to do with this. Probably Mr. Meyers legal department came up with that idea right before the start of Connect and IBM had no choice to accept. IBM certainly knows, that this is quite an affront towards those not able to attend in pe [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm notes notes client apple google planetlotus sharepoint

Will IBM announce Notes 10 next week? I don’t know, but I think it would be about time. Since Ed’s departure to mobile, I feel a bit cut off. Nobody within IBM is really satisfying my need for news. The only thing I heard, is a new project about connecting MS Outlook, which is a good thing, that will save a ton of money for companies who suddenly find themself in the hands of some Outlook fan boys/girls. But that’s about it. Now what? Whenever the number “X” comes [read] Keywords: connections domino expeditor formula language ibm lotus notes notes client noteslotus odf policies quickr sametime xpages apple application applications community eclipse email microsoft mobile outlook security server sharepoint websphere wireless xml

Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year …

Towards the end of the year, or right before LotuSphere Connect, I feel the urge to write about what I hope to see the next year. Not what I expect, because I would be wrong every time, just what I would like to get as a late Christmas present. But this year is different. I will tell you now, what big announcement will be made about Notes at the big yellow bubble gathering in Orlando. Drumroll please: . Right! Nothing. Probably a few small ones, like Domino access for Outlook thru traveller. On [read] Keywords: connections domino lotusphere notes mac outlook

I hope I don’t have to see THAT again. Adobe Reader messes up my Mac big time.

I would almost go as far to call Adobe Reader XI “Crap Ware”. And I am not even alone. What are they thinking. Here is the scenario: Yesterday I had to fill out a pdf form. Unfortunately the Apple preview app can’t do that. Hey, no problem, I am just going to install the latest Adobe Reader and off we go. That worked for the form … apart from the sending by email button with Notes … and I got it done eventually. But I should have taken the problem with Notes and se [read] Keywords: notes apple email mac macbook

One of the best developers I know isn’t anymore. He introduced me to OO programming with Lotus Script. I found solutions were I ran into walls (and I found some for him). We installed Workplace together and that was a long day.We build the first server chalet ever. Rest in peace Jens. My thoughts are with the family. Christian Tillmanns [read] Keywords: lotus server

I need feedback! Do you know how to explain social business?
Thu, Nov 7th 2013 1:26a   Christian Tillmanns
I don’t. Whenever I am asked, what Connections is made for, I get in to trouble. I know what it does and I know pretty much how I can use it, but explaining that, is rather difficult. Lot’s of “imagine”, “well”, “ah” will be included the next 15 minutes of a roller coaster ride around the different elements of Connections, with a bit of Notes thrown in … you can see I make a complete mess of it. While the mess get’s bigger I am still ta [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm notes email security social software wiki

Tue, Nov 5th 2013 3:41a   Christian Tillmanns
Yes, yes, we have chewn through that several times. I just have to get it out of my head, otherwise it will bother me for days. Now bear with me, if you are interested, otherwise you may like this. Right now we (here I mean partners and customers, IBM must know more than we do) face some problems, we think are important to us. Notes customers are fading away, as are partners and capable developers and admins. The yellow bubble is leaking somewhere. Nothing new.
