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

IBM ConnectED 2015 MAS101: #UserBLAST2015
Fri, Feb 6th 2015 2:51a   Mat Newman
#UserBLAST has been a session I've done for the past few years, beginning (sort of) with "Where is the Love" at Lotusphere 2010. Inspired by Gabriella Davis and Paul Mooney's AdminBLAST sessions, the idea has always been to demonstrate the power of my favourite piece of software (hence posting "25 Notes on 25 years of Notes" before this post) by showing people where stuff is and how it works in the Notes client. This year, the speakers slide included a couple of additional names, Gabri

Our session was entitled: BP101: @IF("It's Really Good";"It MUST Be Notes";"Must Be Something Else") 25 Notes on 25 Years of Notes!

One of my favourite articles ever: Why Microsoft Cant Stop Lotus Notes
Sun, Jan 18th 2015 10:40p   Mat Newman
Every now and then I come across an article published by Fortune Magazine back in December 1994. Yes, that's over 20 years ago and as you know Notes is now into it's 25th Year. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Alan Lepofsky, Carly Tyler and I have a session at ConnectED that will share some of the highlights from the past 25 years of Lotus and Notes. I also have a little something prepared that I'm going to share next week at #IBMConnectED, but for the moment have a read of the article and c

A quiet farewell Lotus 1-2-3, Organizer and Smartsuite

Last week a fairly significant date passed without much fanfare: The Withdrawal From Support (WFS) for some of the best desktop software ever created in Lotus 1-2-3, Lotus Organizer and the Lotus Smartsuite office package. This - of course - followed on from the announcement that these iconic products would be withdrawn from marketing effective the 11th of June, 2013. WFM is the term used to signify that a product will no longer be available for purchase by customers. WFS means that a prod
