Why Experts Save You Money
Thu, May 25th 2017 1:00p   Keith Brooks
Did you ever hear these from clients or prospective clients? "Your fees are too high!" "You want how much to do this?" "I can get a person for $10/hr why do we need you?" I have heard these, and many others too over the course of my career. Now let's hear how some others see this issue, these are general references not specific to anyone or anything. Sales advisors tell us it is because we have not sold the client on us and our solution that the price still matters. If they are not so

SnTT - WildCard SSL Certs and Domino....needs 32bit Windows?
Thu, May 25th 2017 9:03a   Keith Brooks
This post is for me, and you, to make life easy. Some of you out there are only now adding SSL certificates to your servers, I know because you are asking me to help you, and so I present today's Show n Tell Tuesday post. There are some excellent SSL and Domino posts on this topic already from Gab Davis, Mats Ekman and Sean Cull, IBM documentation is a bit lacking in this use case so I will not point you to it. I used Gab's post a few times over the last few months and always in a situa

To Tableau, or Not to Tableau
Wed, Mar 8th 2017 8:00p   Keith Brooks
This was the question I had as I reserved a space at the event held today here in Tel Aviv. I was supposed to go last year but was out of the country at the time.Nice view we had. Tableau is about data visualization. yes the same stuff we did 30 years ago with 1-2-3 or Excel but smooth, "simple" and flexible to work with many, many forms of data. They went public in 2013 and since have steadily grown in awareness and revenue. Tableau may not have been on everyone's radar but it is showing up

In Closing, the Connect CGS Speaker
Wed, Mar 1st 2017 8:57p   Keith Brooks
The closing session at IBM Connect this year was probably the most educational closing session I have listened to over the years. And that is a good thing because although some closers were motivational or inspirational or imaginative, the creative process often gets hidden in the final product. Eric Whitacre, who until the session I had not looked up or heard of, was very upfront about his motivations and goals/dreams and how all of them combine to help him fulfill his music efforts.Eric has c

Executive Upgrades of the Server Kind
Wed, Mar 1st 2017 3:42p   Keith Brooks
At Gurupalooza, the last day session of IBM Connect where the IBM Champions and Best Practices presenters answer audience questions, my friend Todd asked us something along these lines: “How do you convince an executive that feature packs must be installed and maintained like formal releases?" In today’s world, there are no formal releases. Your browsers update automatically, if you let them, your phones update apps automatically, again if you let them. So why should your servers or clients

Day 2 of Connect was Road Map Day for me
Fri, Feb 24th 2017 3:36a   Keith Brooks
The day opened with Mat's AdminBlast session which was so full of tips and ideas he could barely get to all of them and he laid out how he manages his team and uses all the resources he can from Notes, Domino, Connections, Watson, etc. Great effort and valuable training for new managers to get a great view of how they could be working. Usually the sessions are a secondary benefit, for people like myself that are involved in the product line for so long. We have various meetings, briefings, sid

Welcome to NOT Orlando
Wed, Feb 22nd 2017 8:46a   Keith Brooks
IBM Connect, or Lotusphere, as us old people call it kicked off last night with the welcome reception and today with the Opening General Session. This year we break from tradition to visit San Francisco instead of Orlando. Many traditions may not return, but thank God for Ephox and Aussie Night, and Mat. Disclaimer, IBM Champions are invited in advance and are loved by Ephox. The usual cast of characters exist, like a Thanksgiving dinner, your business cousins, uncles and aunts and everyone in

Fix Your Own Computer And Advanced Backups
Tue, Feb 14th 2017 3:00p   Keith Brooks
I did these two sessions today as part of the technical track "SpeedGeeking" sessions. The Backup one was more of an interactive session with a link to numerous free and not so free backup software options. For last year's more detailed version see "My Dog Ate My Homework". Advanced Backups from Keith Brooks The Fix Your Own Computer session is to help non technical people understand some options when they run into a problem with their equipment. Obviously, in 15 minutes, one can not re

18+ Ways to Help Clients Love You
Tue, Feb 14th 2017 1:45p   Keith Brooks
This was my slide deck for today's Israel Translation Association (ITA) Conference in Tel Aviv. It is more specific than last year's "Worst Translation Practices" session but also more minmal. You will see no text, just logos and graphics. It is good for everyone to remember some of these no matter what business you are in or where you work in the world. 18+ Ways To Help Clients Love You from Keith Brooks
