Over the years I have had the chance to attend a lot of LUGs around the world including Engage (BLUG), Inform (AUSLUG), and of course there is MWLUG (people call me MWLUG). These events have provided me with the chance to hear from leading Notes Developers and Domino Administrators. But rarely do I get the chance to hear from a CIO and get his/her view on IBM Collaboration Solutions. That is why I am excited this year to have the chance to present alongside Clarence White, the CIO for The Salvation Army’s US Southern Territory. Often the future of Notes at an organization rests in the hands of the CIO and it is important for us all to understand how they may see the future for Notes and Notes databases in 2016.

Please join us at 10:15 AM on Friday for our session called The Lotus Position – Three Degrees of Freedom. In this session we will be talking about three distinct strategies that we have developed to provide a future for The Salvation Army’s portfolio of Notes applications. We will show how Red Pill Now has applied its understanding of Design First, Graph Databases, REST APIs, and Polymer Web Components to build a future for Notes data, bringing the theory behind our other four MWLUG sessions in a real world case study.

I had the opportunity to do this presentation at Engage easier in the year. At Engage we had FOUR degrees of freedom. Now we are down to THREE. If you attend this week’s session I will explain why we no longer consider XPages to be a viable option for The Salvation Army. We will also be providing the first looks at an exciting new portal for Notes data that brings all these technologies together to deliver a seamless interface for all your Notes data. Red Pill has a vision that does not require that 20 million Notes databases be left behind.

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
