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.

A blast at Air 14 and another one of IBMs lost opportunities
Thu, Sep 11th 2014 7:45a   Christian Tillmanns
This should have been a series of blog posts over the 10 days as I was working as a volunteer at the Air 14 Air Show in Payerne, Switzerland, but since we were up from about 0600 (that’s zero six hundred for you military guys or just too early for the rest of us) until we had tucked in the last of the jet pilots (helicopter pilots don’t need us, they are adults) at 2200 or later, frankly I was toasted by then. Therefore I put it in one, albeit a long one. For the nerds among us, the [read] Keywords: acl ibm lotus notes xpages application exchange exchange mobile outlook

THIS I wrote almost two years ago and surprise surprise, I was quite close to what happened lately with IBM and Apple. Quick read? I’ll wait. (Dumdidumdi… have to mow the lawn again. Stupid rain … Oh, the cat (Floh, because he had flees when we got him) under my table is dreaming again. Sounds like a fight with someone. Haven’t heard him growl like that since that stupid orange tom attacked him) Ready? Good. Overall it seems that I had the same ideas than IBM and Apple.

Yup, that’s true, if you are one of those incredibly hard-working men/women, who know they don’t need a lot of sleep and can work for 20 hours a day for weeks. If you find yourself here, you might want to realise you have a mental performance of a heavily drunk. And as a bonus you are killing yourself. Every other year in May the time comes, were I have to renew my flight instructor privileges. Probably for the last 10 years they beat into us, that fatigue is one of the bigger proble [read] Keywords: administration email office

A View from Beneath the Dancing Elephant – another book
Mon, Jun 23rd 2014 10:11a   Christian Tillmanns
Now this book is different from Cringely’s. It was written by Peter E. Greulich, an insider. He tells the story of the Watsons in IBM and the impact they had on a positive corporate culture. Something inexistent today, as the author believes. While Cringely relies on information he can gather from the outside, Peter E. Greulich has worked for IBM for about 30 years in various positions, including management. He has many interesting stories to tell, but the essence of the book is his grief [read] Keywords: ibm apple development linux microsoft tivoli wiki

i Cringely: the Decline and Fall of IBM – a review
Tue, Jun 17th 2014 1:12p   Christian Tillmanns
For quite a while I was working on a series of blog posts about the decline of Notes and Domino and then came this book. Damn, he was faster. But this book isn’t about Notes and Domino and I couldn’t say if Cringely even knows it, but it does not matter. Here is a bigger picture and it explains quite well, why Notes and Domino are on a sinking ship. It’s not only that Notes is under constant fire from outside, the whole IBM is a mess, if all what Cringely writes is only half-tr [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm notes apple database development wiki

Tue, Jun 17th 2014 10:11a   Christian Tillmanns
I made myself a Smart Cloud Engage(?) test account. Now what I wanted to do, is invite somebody to work on a text outside “my” company. First it is rather complicated until you get there. You can not invite somebody from outside by adding him on the document. You have to go through files and invite them first from there. Right there were your new document shows up (aaaarrrghhh). When you just added somebody and click invite, you are informed, that you are not allowed to do that. Th [read] Keywords: ibm apple email google

First the rant. I am with Volker Weber and the annoying stuff one has to do to follow a web meeting with IBM.All started well until it actually started. I had an image but no sound. In the chat window phone numbers appeared. Toll for anybody outside the US or Canada. IBM, that’s not nice. Is anybody on another continent a lower life form? I restarted the whole shabadoing and had to install the latest Java Version. A little window asks if I want to start the plugin which did not start anyw [read] Keywords: domino expeditor ibm notes notes client xpages applications java outlook server

Scott Souders dead cold hands
Fri, Mar 7th 2014 7:51a   Christian Tillmanns
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. He does not have [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm inotes notes notes client xpages blogging email mac microsoft mobile outlook social software twitter

SocialBizUG trolls … They do have a problem
Wed, Feb 5th 2014 6:18a   Christian Tillmanns
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.

Think inside … or outside the InBox? Mail Next continues the never ending Story
Wed, Jan 29th 2014 2:16a   Christian Tillmanns
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
