Red Pill Now is pleased to announce it is partnering with Darwino, adding Darwino to Red Pill Now’s growing portfolio of best in class solutions, consulting, and development services focused on enhancing your investment in Notes data. What excites me the most about Darwino is its unique approach of replicating data between Notes databases and SQL data stores, providing the best of both worlds. Replication has long been a key differentiator for Notes and it is interesting to see the opportu

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 3
Mon, Aug 28th 2017 8:04a   Peter Presnell
Notes Is Dead (Or So They Say) Let’s start by dealing with the 800 lb (363 kg) gorilla in the room. Is “Lotus Notes” dead? Well technically yes, because the official name has now been changed to IBM Notes. Many people, including most of us at Red Pill Now, have been heard to claim this is true even if it perhaps it is not an entirely true statement. But its not entirely fake news being spread by the dishonest mainstream media. Red Pill Now estimates that Notes as an applicatio

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 2
Mon, Aug 28th 2017 12:37a   Peter Presnell
For those of you who have read Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 1, I have a small confession to make. I do not really own a yellow 1989 Lotus! I wish I did, as it would have been really cool to turn up to Lotusphere each year in one of those. What I do own is a 2011 Lexus RX 350. Its a really great car, but being six years old now it does have a similar story to tell as a 1989 Lotus.I have tried to keep up with maintenance but even the latest GPS upgrade doesn’t have the street on whi

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 1
Fri, Aug 25th 2017 4:17a   Peter Presnell
Back around 1989 I became a Lotus enthusiast. Yellow even became my favorite color. While I never got to the point where I would dress up in a yellow suit, I would describe myself as somebody who would bleed yellow. With my Lotus I could do almost anything. I could proudly proclaim Lotus Knows how to get me safely to and from work. Lotus Knows how to get me to class on time. Lotus Knows how to get me home safely from the pub of an evening. Lotus Knows how to find a parking space within walking d

Red Pill Now @ MWLUG 2017
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 6:11a   Peter Presnell
As a CEO of an IBM Business Partner there is always a positive feeling that comes when being able to support a User Group event such as MWLUG. Its a chance to give back to a community that has helped us all in our earlier careers. It’s a chance to not only finance these events so that the cost to attend is modest, but also a chance to be part of an ongoing conversation about our community and to share some of expertise with others following in our footsteps. This year we had our largest co

What We Learned at MWLUG 2017
Wed, Aug 16th 2017 8:02p   Peter Presnell
Richard Moy and team put together another great User Group event in Alexandria, VA last week. Its an event that falls half-way between the annual event once known as LotusSphere. This year’s event set a new attendance record, including a large contingent of IBMers allowing all to get the latest information and news for all things Collaboration (ICS). The following are the key take aways that I noticed as a former Notes developer still passionate about finding future paths for Notes data.

MWLUG – The Perfect event at the Perfect time
Fri, Jul 28th 2017 8:07p   Peter Presnell
For CIOs who oversee an active portfolio of Notes/Domino applications it is now clear they have a need to develop a strategy to transform their investment. IBM is moving on from the platform that has served many of us well for 28 years. The path forward has been less than clear. There has long been a hope that a magic button would appear capable of taking an aging collection of Notes applications and make them relevant in 2017. A quick simple solution does not exist and CIOs must chose between t

What We Learned at Engage
Fri, May 12th 2017 6:54p   Peter Presnell
Being one of the major events in the ICS community, Engage provides a chance for IBM, Customers and Business Partners  to get updates on the platform and exchange thoughts and views about what the future holds. This year’s event was no exception. Business Partners During the OGS we heard IBM outline how important business partners were to its success. And then a few minutes later under the pressure of time they decide the best way to catch up was to cut the Business Partner presentations

Let’s Talk About Better Designed Apps at Engage 2017
Mon, May 8th 2017 10:57a   Bob Kadrie
I can’t think of a more appropriate place than Antwerp, Belgium to discuss design thinking, user experience, and UI design. For those of you who have not had the opportunity to visit Antwerp, the city is safe, the architecture designed to be beautiful and functional, built on a historically reliable foundation, and connected by an infrastructure that works — further adding to the beauty that is this city. This is a nearly perfect analogy for how we at Red Pill Now, and what we are wo

Taking The Red Pill @Engage2017
Mon, May 8th 2017 5:12a   Peter Presnell
Red Pill Now is pleased it will again be represented at Engage. This year’s event is being held in Antwerp, Belgium May 8-9. This will be the third year. Without doubt this is one of the best User Groups for IBM Collaboration Software.. Organizer Theo Hesslmans does an amazing job, and usually finds some way to make each event even better than the one before. So we look forward to see what Theo and his amazing team have planned for this year. Last year we had four people from Red Pill Now

IoT The Next Big Thing For Application Development?
Wed, May 3rd 2017 6:35a   Peter Presnell
I consider myself fortunate that my career has coincided with the rise of the computer as a business tool. Over that time I have seen a series of break-out technologies that have significantly changed the way computers have not only solved business needs but also transformed that way businesses can work. Each new technology has driven innovation and business opportunities. Technology companies such as Apple, CISCO, Microsoft, Amazon, and FaceBook have all shot to prominence catering to these new

Our Views On Connect 2017
Tue, Feb 28th 2017 7:21p   Peter Presnell
Last week Devin Olson and myself had the chance to attend IBM Connect 2017 in San Francisco. It was a new venue in a new location combining some of the traditions of the past along with a few things new and different. I had the chance to hear IBM’s message, discuss the events with a number of the people who attended as well as share ideas internally with the team at Red Pill Now. The following is a summary of my thoughts from this year’s event. Application Modernization After having

Connecting With Graphs At IBM Connections
Mon, Feb 20th 2017 4:24p   Peter Presnell
Over the past 12 months Red Pill Now has continue to explore new and exciting ways in which we can exploit the potential of Graph Databases. The unique characteristics of Graph databases combined with REST APIs and the awesomeness that comes from Web Components and Material Design (via Polymer) is allowing us to transform Notes data in ways that was never possible until now. This includes modeling the structure of an entire portfolio of Notes databases, providing graph-based search for those dat

Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux
Wed, Nov 9th 2016 11:11p   Devin Olson
A few years ago, shortly after the release of Domino 9,  I wrote an instructional guide (along with some videos posted to YouTube) on how to install and configure IBM Domino on CentOS and posted it to dropbox.   The response was overwhelmingly positive, I had no idea so many people needed this type of guide. This year I presented a hands on workshop at AdminCamp 2016 where we went from a “bare metal” empty VM to a running Domino server, and while preparing that session I realize

IBM Traveler and Verse: Device Security and Administration Overview
Tue, Nov 8th 2016 2:17p   Devin Olson
There currently seems to be a great deal of confusion about IBM Traveler and Verse with regard to device security and administration. The necessary overview information is available from IBM, but is rather dispersed and somewhat difficult to track down in a single concise location. This document will attempt to answer some of the most common points of confusion and concern for those considering a Traveler deployment in their Domino environment -without necessarily having IBM Connect or Cloud sol

Devin will be the first “Notes” person joining Red Pill Now s
