Bosch opts for IBM Connections software – automotiveIT International
notesbusters    

Interesting article – shows that Connections is more and more in demand not only in the US but also internationally.

I find that some of my clients go the “Social Software” route to “get rid of email”  which is one way of saying they want their people to spend less time in their mail in-boxes and more time being productive and sharing knowledge. This is a very large change – a true paradigm shift that can pay off – as long as it is managed well and actually gives users what they need to get their job done. Change though, is never easy – I find my job often revolves more around how  to coax people into eversomuch (think snails) changing how they approach their workday and less around how to set up and configure a product.

Bosch opts for IBM Connections software

MARCH 15, 2012

IBM will help Robert Bosch provide its employees with social-media tools

Robert Bosch has decided to use IBM Connections software to deepen the integration of social media in its office procedures.

The German automotive supplier decided on IBM because the US based IT services and computer company offered a highly standardized package of software that is easy to use and can be expanded down the road.

“With IBM Connections, IBM doesn’t just offer a powerful platform,” said Josef Maichle, vice president corporate information systems at Bosch. “Based on its experience in the area of social business, the company has also positioned itself as a trustworthy partner for the changeover.”

Bosch in the past year evaluated how to implement social media software across its operations. It wanted to provide employees with the ability to form social communities and other internal cooperation tools.

Selection criteria for Bosch were functional areas of coverage, intuitive operation and the possibility to introduce the new software without having to make major changes to existing systems.

Ivo Koerner, vice president software at IBM Germany, said companies see the efficiency benefits from social media, but worry about the required shifts in working practices.

Said Koerner: “The change into a social business is a big cultural challenge for many companies.”

IBM Connections software provides employees access to everyone in a pre-defined professional network. The software offers moderation, blogs, a media gallery and other social-media tools that help provide faster access to information.

Open Mic Webcast : Linux for the IBM Sametime Admin (04/09/2014)
Tue, Apr 1st 2014 6:12a   Victor Toal
Marlon Machado posted this on the Sametime blog (link below) yesterday. Since there is allot of Linux all over the place, I suggest this as a webcast to listen to. If you still live in a Windows only server world, it is only a amtter of time until your boss tells you that there are maybe some Linux machines coming your way …. As you probably know by now IBM’s commitment to the Linux platform is broad and deep. That includes, of course, IBM Sametime.

If you are working with IBM Connections and you want to know more about the new (and FREE) entitlement of the EPHOX editor EditLive! for IBM Connections V4.5 then you should tune in to this webinar tomorrow …. In January, IBM announced terrific news for IBM Connections customers — it’s making the Ephox editor, EditLive!, available to all IBM Connections v4.5 clients. Now IBM Connections’ users have access to the industry’s most advanced WYSIWYG editor.In this short, but [read] Keywords: connections ibm email facebook linkedin twitter

WebSphere – The Basics on Security, Directories and Federated Repositories
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 9:13a   Victor Toal
I had promised earlier this year to post more content (other than opinion and news) so I am now catching up on my promise. This post was inspired by a combined WebSphere – IBM Connections review review I did for a client earlier this year, along with some content from my IBM Connections admin training that I offer and that the same client asked me to give after they read my review of their environment.

Rebranding of Notes Mail / Connections Mail and Consequences – #RebrandingFail
Wed, Feb 12th 2014 2:11p   Victor Toal
I received this marketing/sales email earlier today and reading it made me a bit confused and also concerned. Not because I think that IBM and email is going away, but because f the way that IBM has initialized it’s latest round of rebranding Notes (aka Connections Mail) there is confusion in the marketplace and this is a great example for what clients are going to be bombarded with: Dear Victor, IBM is ending the “Lotus” brand, and has been building more functionality into “IBM Conn [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm lotus notes email

As if yesterday I am now finally IBM Connections certified: I had had just no time previously but here at Connect the certification tests are all free for participants so I went for it – and past! It was about time too, having worked with Connections for the last 6 years not having a certification just seemed strange. I do not test well (my dyslexia makes it hard for me) but I guess doing all these crazy IBM Connections projects finally paid off. Yippie!

I have been helping a client with a new Lotus Protector setup and I ran into a new problem for the first time myself and as I can’t find anything on the web or in the documentation this is a prime candidate for a blog entry: By default Lotus protector is accessible by two ports: https on port 443 for the admin interface and over https on port 4443 for the client access (e.g. the Notes client displaying your spam queue). I had never felt it necessary to change this before but my current cli [read] Keywords: admin ibm ldd lotus notes notes client protector integration interface

There is allot hat I am working on, here the short list: Connect2014 Yes, I mentioned I am going and what my (not very short) list of must-see presentations are.

As far as blogging goes, 2013 was not my most productive … but this will likely change in the near future with some more regular posts and interesting technical tidbits I hope!
