SugarCon 2012 Starts Today
   

Business Partner day starts today. I flew in last night and got a phone call at 6am from a client with a server down. So much for sleep.

Took the 5 block walk to the Palace Hotel where the conference is located. Along the way saw many examples of inner city art, sculptures, exhibitions of artists work in almost any and every place. The things I miss working a 1/2 mile from home normally. Will try to get some pictures later this week. On the flip side sad to see so many homeless and questionable activities going on in this part of the city.

This morning Larry Augustin opened with the state of numbers. Where Sugar stands, where we as Business partners stand. He made a point, which I had put into my sessions, making life easier for the user is key.

Some great marketing plans coming out, Google ad-words campaigns now part of the ecosystem as well. Nice to see when a Vendor knows how to help their partners. The Zift program is really nice and easy to use.

Great to see other Sugar Partners in person finally and to see SugarCRM employees as well that I haven't met in person yet.

Social online helps with social in person. Now if my memory worked as well.

Will post more over the week. If you are out here, catch me either on the SugarCon app or find me at my sessions.

A Few New 2015 IBM Champions I want To Thank
Wed, Dec 3rd 2014 12:40p   Keith Brooks
Oh the stories we could tell... Many of us know each other, if not in person, then online and usually we found each other through blogs and sessions we gave at various events. Or at a User Group event or Lotusphere, IBM Connect, now IBM ConnectED. But sometimes we never meet which is a shame and some people, myself included, never know just how much we helped or are helped by others until they come up and tell us. I was named a 2015 IBM Champion for ICS for the 3rd year in a row. I don't know [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotusphere aix applications community development

Writing Competitive Pitches #EvangelistGuide

Once upon a time people would have discussions with one another and argue the finer points of The Beatles Vs. The Rolling Stones, beer vs. wine, blended vs. singe malt scotch or is Eric Clapton really God? Should we be in Vietnam or Korea or do we colonize Mars. iPhone vs. Android, Jobs vs. Ford, 72' Dolphins vs. anyone. But the fun and good times eventually gives way to serious business discussions at work when you are in sales and now you not only need to have a good argument, you also need t [read] Keywords: consulting development google interface iphone microsoft

If you spent the two hours online watching the video and speakers (link to watch the replay) during the IBM event today, you found yourself going back and forth across a spectrum from amazement to amusement. The new name of the Mail.Next product is IBM Verse, no mention, that I recall, of the server name being changed. I am not going to try to explain the name, Alan Lepofsky did it quite well here.

I had some discussions around presenting and training and my blog style over the last few days. When preparing presentations, and blog posts, that are of a technical nature, there a few steps involved. The premise of the problem, some investigation work to solving it, testing the solutions then providing details around the one that worked. Many times I provide the question, and the answer, in order to help make other techies lives easier for them, when they run into the same problems. When I w [read] Keywords: email security twitter

I Finally Experiencd the Social Connections Conference
Sat, Nov 15th 2014 1:10p   Keith Brooks
If you have been living outside of the collaboration or social space you probably have no idea what conference I am discussing. The Social Connections Conference, which has just completed their 7th conference in 3.5 years, is an impressive effort that you should experience too. Having been a part of or attended so many conferences over the years I had been unable to get to any of the Social Connections events until this one in Stockholm, Sweden and what makes it so impressive?

Been a long time since I wrote a Show n Tell Thursday so let's get on with it. Building an IBM Domino cluster is not as difficult as it was years ago and I was done with the basic parts and wanted to test the fail over. I figured easiest way to do this was to enter at a server console "stop port tcpip" while connected via rdp to the server. I tested mail clients could fall over to the 2nd server and mail routed. Great. Back to the server and server console and tell it to "start port tcpip [read] Keywords: administration connections domino ibm notes show n tell sntt google network server

Hey Politicians, There is this thing called the Internet
Tue, Nov 4th 2014 4:56a   Keith Brooks
Where we live there is a newspaper, in print, that is free and is very pro the current government. I say good for them if they can keep it going on dwindling advertising revenue, or the owner is some wealthy patron who feels the need to lose some money, either way, what is the problem? The problem is some government officials think this is propaganda with the aim of helping the existing government officials stay in office and should be treated accordingly. They are trying to pass a law that ne [read] Keywords: office twitter

Curios Reading from 2007 About Collaborative Networks and Conflict
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 6:53a   Keith Brooks
“A Manager’s Guide to Resolving Conflicts in Collaborative Networks” (Washington, D.C.: IBM Center for The Business of Government, 2007) While researching my upcoming session at Social Connections VII in Stockholm, Sweden in 2 weeks I came across this article from 2007, naturally backed by IBM, on collaboration, conflict and accountability. The authors: Lisa Blomgren Bingham, Professor and Keller-Runden Chair in Public Service, Indiana University andRosemary O'Leary, Edwin O.

Half baked ideas? No, they were completely baked and ready to go....except for a strategic piece. Lost in translation or just lost in space, hard to know sometimes where to assign the lack of accountability. A Cloud solution that is not quite ready for the Enterprise or an application that you are working on when you suddenly realize no one thought about who would use the solution, let alone, why they need it. Governments, countries, airports and many organizations run into this it seems more [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm application email enterprise microsoft office sharepoint
