Those wonderful serendipitous moments
Tue, Dec 22nd 2015 9:58a   Mat Newman
Tonight, as I settled down to my evening of collating all things "work" for the day, I experienced one of those wonderful moments that a traveller rarely gets to experience, but will resonate as a "moment" for one's entire life. While working, I picked up on the "twang" of the accent emanating from the couple at the table beside me ... it was familiar, and yet, a world away. After listening to their banter for an enjoyable few minutes, I interjected; "excuse me, are you folks from

Folks have been a little busy over on the IBM Connect 2016 web-site, you may have noticed that the summary agenda has been published. http://www-01.ibm.com/software/collaboration/events/connect/agenda/ I'm very happy about the re-introduction of a highlight of the conference from years past on the second-last night, the "Special Event". Although it has yet to be officially announced, there is sure to be plenty of speculation about the location of that event. More details will be announc

I get asked a lot about free training resources for the IBM Collaboration Solutions portfolio. Over on IBM's Greenhouse demonstration site there is a fantastic collection of resources for Users, Administrators and Developers that you can download for free ... yes ... FREE! If you already have a Greenhouse account, all you need to do is sign in. If you don't already have an account, there's a simple sign-up process and then you get access to the entire site, where you can trial all of IBM'

The Alternate Reality, Episode 7: Our 5 year Mission
Mon, Jul 27th 2015 9:43a   Mat Newman
The past couple of days have seen a little milestone pass: 5 years working with the "Alternate Reality" that I first wrote about back in 2010. FIGURE 1: My Desktop Today This started as an experiment to determine whether it was truly possible to move completely away from the "Standard" Microsoft Operating System and Document Editors used by so many in corporate life. For me, the whole experience has been liberating, enlightening, and extremely fun. Liberating, from the point

Thank you Iris, Lotus and IBM ... 20 Years ...

That first moment - back in 1992, when I imported my first 1-2-3 spreadsheet into a Notes database and created a form and some views - I knew I was working with something special. As I mentioned a couple of years ago, my journey with IBM software - and in particular Lotus Notes - has been one for me that has been both personally and professionally fulfilling. This year is particularly poignant. Today, I celebrate 20 years as an IT professional. 20 years ago today - as a young guy wit

Tue, Apr 28th 2015 7:30a   Mat Newman
It's no secret that I'm in love with IBM Connections Activities. In fact, if there was any single reason to purchase a step-up from the basic IBM Connections Profiles, Files and Status updates entitlements included with your IBM Notes CAL's ... this would be it! And it just ... got ... BETTER!

If you’re not using what you already have, how can something else be ’better’
Tue, Apr 21st 2015 12:29p   Mat Newman
A constant theme in customer meetings recently has been educating our users about the entitlements they already have, the capabilities that are already available to them, and the tools that they have at their disposal. Too often we have engaged with customers where the competition has demonstrated something "shiny" (for want of a better word), which the customer has gleefully latched onto as their reason for purporting to switch to another platform, without consulting their existing v

The AWESOMENESS that is IBM NOTES captured in one screen
Thu, Feb 12th 2015 7:28a   Mat Newman
A colleague asked me earlier this afternoon to capture the AWESOMENESS that is IBM Notes in a single screen. Hmmmm ... thinks I! ... How does one explain just how good IBM Notes is in a single screen-capture? A few screen-shots, some slicing and dicing, and a couple of overlays later ... I think I've gotten a lot of it covered: Figure 1: Oh yes, THIS is what Notes is capable of! Clearly, this is worthy of an entire #UserBLAST session to explain exactly what is happening within that o
