Since its formation in 2013 Red Pill Now has actively encourage its team members to be active members of the community. Whether it be through participation in technical forums, presenting at conferences and user groups, writing blog articles that share knowledge and insight, or contribution code to open source foundations such as OpenNTF, almost every member of Red Pill Now is an active contributor to the community it serves. Because of this commitment Red Pill Now is proud to be able to recognize the achievement of Nathan Freeman and Devin Olson in being selected as IBM Champions for Social Collaboration 2017. They exemplify the spirit of helping and sharing  that has long been a hallmark of the Notes community around the globe. This also extends a great tradition at Red Pill Now, which was originally founded by four IBM Champions.

We are delighted that the latest member to join Red Pill Now, Devin Olson has been recognized for the second year in a row for his contributions. Until recently Devin has worked at Czarnowski alongside a talented team of past and former IBM Champions (Declan Lynch, Mike McGarrell, and David Leedy). I guess with Devin there is always another great beer, IBM Champion (or both) on tap should he need one to get through the day.

During 2017 Red Pill Now will be seeking to continue its tradition as a thought leader in the development of new and exciting options for Notes data and we look forward to having the chance to share our thought and knowledge through our two IBM Champions and the other talented members of our team. Have a great Christmas and New Year!

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

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

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

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
