Peter Presnell    

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.

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

Today it is almost impossible to imagine heading too far without without (a) possession of a smartphone; and (b) having it connected to the Internet. Smartphones have totally transformed the utility value of s mobile phone. While phones themselves are not all that new, it has been the integration of software capabilities and data that has transformed what we can and can’t do in our daily lives. Chat may never be quite as transformative, but we are definitely in the early stages of a new re
