Where’s Domino?

Modern-Domino-LogoIn recent weeks IBM has  been a key participant in a number of events and product launches. These are the perfect opportunity for IBM to showcase the wide range of solutions in its portfolio. Notes has been doing Groupware long before the term Social was adopted. XPages Mobile Controls provide a typical Notes RAD approach to creating mobile applications and adding mobile interfaces to existing applications. Notes databases are non-SQL the preferred approach to processing Big Data and analytics. Thanks to the OpenNTF Domino API it is now possible to use Domino as a document based graph database. IBM has recently announced plans to provide a Domino service in the cloud using SoftLayer. IBM’s current focus is Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud. With Notes/Domino now fitting into all four  of those areas IBM has every reason to tell the world about Notes/Domino.

If you are responsible for supporting, developing, administering, or managing one or more of these applications you are probably looking to stay informed about the continued relevance of the Notes/Domino platform, especially as it relates to new focus areas such as Mobile, Social, Analytics, and Cloud. So let’s take a look to see which products IBM is focusing on at these events and then explore at least one upcoming event that may provide what you are seeking.

  1. Peter Presnell says:

    BTW: Engage is on next week in Breda, Netherlands. If you haven’t registered and can attend this is an AWESOME event with 50 sessions, and 30 IBM champs. Registration is almost full, so act quickly.

  2. Bruce Elgort says:

    Sometimes companies don’t share everything with you. You have to learn and read the tea leaves.

  3. Peter Presnell says:

    The unfortunate thing about reading tea leaves Bruce is everyone reads them differently. Its also been known for IBM Marketing to have a vastly different message to others inside IBM. That’s where User Groups can add value. IBMers who attend are often able to help shed some light on the questions we have.

  4. Bruce says:

    So Peter, what exactly is the question you have? I have read the tea leaves and have planned and executed accordingly.

  5. Martin says:

    I think ICON UK was annouced for this year. It’s just not run by Warren.

  6. Tim Clark says:

    You will be changing slide 10 I hope as we have announced that I am running ICON UK 2014 in London in September. ;o)

  7. Peter Presnell says:

    That is good news Tim (the bit about there being an event, not the bit about me getting my facts wrong). I have posted an updated version of the slides. I’ll sit and wait for Chris Miller to tell me there is an IAMLUG after all.

  8. Peter Presnell says:

    Great response Bruce. Yes, indeed you have read the tea-leaves and responded accordingly. My research for my presentation at ATLUG suggests Domino is going to be around a lot longer than some people may think. It outlasted Workplace and will most likely outlast a few other things. And we haven’t even gotten close at Red Pill to running out of ideas about how some of the unique capabilities of Notes/Domino can be exploited in today’s world of Social, Cloud, Analytics, and Mobile (SCAM).
