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

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

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

Destroying A Business From Within
Thu, Feb 9th 2017 2:00p   Keith Brooks
The other night we went out with 30 of our friends to a new restaurant and bar in our neighborhood for my birthday. My wife and I ate there a few days earlier and agreed it would work well for our crowd. Who knew one can make so many friends in two and half years of moving here but we did! While we don't always get together regularly, we do get together for drinks or late night food between 2 and 4 times a month in smaller groups and maybe once a month in a bigger way for a party or birthday.

Me? At a Hackathon? Lead a team? What?
Tue, Jan 31st 2017 2:10p   Keith Brooks
I submitted a topic for Alan Hamilton's IBM Connect Hackathon which takes place the day before the event. It was accepted, my team "Domino Tweets" is good to go!Our Motto : Stay at the pub longer, we'll tweet you if we need you, love your Domino Server! Why? Because I have wanted one thing for a while, a DDM (Domino Domain Monitor) notification via Twitter. As an admin DDM is my top inside the box tool. Notifications are usually in the database itself or in my case sent via em
