If You're going to San Francisco...
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 4:48p   Keith Brooks
"You're gonna meet some gentle people there" - So sang the late Scott Mckenzie in May 1967 as an advertisement for the then upcoming Monterrey International Pop Music Festival. One of them will be me, as I have been asked to speak about one of my clients about their journey to the IBM Connections Cloud. The abstract officially says(link):Getting to the cloud is half the battle; while getting your users to follow you (let alone understand what is where or how) is another story entirely. From C

Mission Tools: Lotus Quickr to IBM Connections Cloud

Welcome to the 3rd installment of my migration project. I am happy to say that we moved everything over, now we are verifying everything came over and cleaning up all the orphaned and misc. files that were found and cross linked at one time. So, how did we get it all moved I bet you are asking. There is an automated way, via IBM and their partner in Europe T-systems, which is part of T-Mobile it seems, they can help and their pricing is really for the bigger companies. They have a process and

Mission Worries: Lotus Quickr to IBM Connections Cloud
Mon, Dec 19th 2016 2:00p   Keith Brooks
Who knew so many people still had Lotus Quickr? See IBM I told you people love it still. There are many things to think about during a migration of data, most of which you as the client will not think about, or even know about, until you have moved and find it out. Do you know why? Because not very many companies, people, or Business Partners have done these migrations like I have over 20+ years. These "Mission" posts are meant to help you in this process. Last post I gave some basic informat

HUGE Change Coming for non SSL Traveler Customers
Sat, Dec 17th 2016 7:14p   Keith Brooks
This was to go into effect on January 1, 2017 but IBM has relented, edit is from yesterday, so you have 3 months, and not a nightmare on January 2nd to return to from vacation. IBM published this Technote which lays it all out in black and white: IMPORTANT: You must ensure that your IBM Verse Mobile and Traveler connections are secure and compliant with these requirements by March 15, 2017. This is not about IBM Connections Cloud users but is about on-premises installations of IBM Notes Tra

"We've got five years, what a surpriseWe've got five years, my brain hurts a lot"..David Bowie, Five Years IBM has granted me another year as their ambassador. Well, me and 122 other friends and colleagues. You can read the announcement here. Congratulations everyone! This will be my 5th year as an ICS Champion and I was a Websphere Champion for 3 years. I was not part of the first class. A friend told me at the time, "the people elected in the 2nd year are the ones to watch, so stick wit

My last Lotus Quickr customer is moving off of Quickr by December 31st. I love Quickr, still do, but time marches on and maybe you found yourself looking at Quickr wondering: How do I secure this box? You have options, and hopefully have used them, but the server is trapped on an 8.5 server which is basically an unsafe server to run at t his point especially if it has access to/from the outside world.Accessing your data is getting harder as browsers advance but the code on the server does not

How to Create Multiple Communities in IBM Connections or Conenctions Cloud?
Thu, Dec 1st 2016 1:00p   Keith Brooks
As a non developer, this was easier than I imagined it would be, once help arrived from my friends. I have a Lotus IBM Quickr customer, my last one, so any Quickr sites, contact me I am available! Anyway, I am moving them from Quickr to the IBM Connections Cloud environment. This post is not about the move itself, but about how one can create over 200 new communities(200+ Places and 220GB of data) without having to hire an intern to do it manually. I posted to the chat for IBM Connections peo

IBM recently announced the continued support for Notes and Domino through the year 2021. As we transition to the Cloud, and Verse becomes more prominent, it is not surprising that we reach this apex. Remember cc:mail? What about the IBM Notes Server? How about Microsoft Mail? Windows for Workgroups? Palm Pilot? Apple Newton? Yes, the technology landscape is filled with artifacts that were stepping stones to the great products we have today. Every generation leads to newer, faster, leaner (physic

‘Cause after a while and a thousand miles, it all becomes the same... - Bill JoelOnce upon a time in his song The Entertainer about life on the road as a musician. This is my 1,000th blog post under the LotusEvangelist brand/title/moniker/aura. I had planned to write this one December 31st or when the latest IBM Champion announcement came out, but I was a few blog posts short. The early days, 2007 or so, I was blogging quite frequently but over the years that slowed down considerably. Last yea

The Dog Ate My Translation Homework and other stories from the ITA Conference
Thu, Feb 18th 2016 8:45a   Keith Brooks
Yesterday I had the pleasure of addressing the ITA, Israel Translator Association, in Jerusalem at their 2016 conference. It was my first formal speaking engagement in Israel since we moved here. I had only submitted one abstract, but after reading my background was asked by the powers that be to do a second session about disaster recovery and planning for it. Given where we are right now, it seemed appropriate although I felt it was something everyone already knew. Little did I know. My openi
