We were Jamming Again! A recap from Vienna!

I am honored for being invited to one more Domino Jam in Vienna, this time, for the V11 Version. After a brief session of what the future has in stores for us and the rules by which the “brainstorming” sessions are going to take place, we all got a few block of “PostIt” paper, from Thomas Hampel who was leading the Event, and started “cracking”.

Great atmosphere among the friends!

Here are some photos of the result:

It was nice to see that IBM & HCL are putting, once again, so much effort in the these sessions, you could clearly see that they care what the users think. At the end we had a chance to talk with Richard JeftsThomas Hampel and Uffe Sorensen about the plans that HCL has for the Domino & Notes Platform, and what we got to hear, didn’t differ much from the main Ideas that came out of the event. This is what I liked the most, the chance to talk with people who are responsible for the platform, and they also didn’t shy away telling what is not the focus of the next release and which features won’t be implemented in the V11 Release, what possibly was the best thing, showing where the focus lies, getting everybody on the same page and not rising any false hopes.

At the end of the event we got the Information that we should expect the V11 in the November of the 2019! I surely can’t wait to drink V11 Beer in Vienna! 😉 This event was definitely a nice experience, and I can only recommend it to everyone, if you you are interested, than please make sure to register for the Domino Jam V11 event near you: 

Like always the Organisation in the IBM Client Center Vienna was great, a special thanks and big thumbs up to the Austrian IBM Team, as to Richard Jefts, Thomas Hampel and Uffe Sorensen for coming to Vienna personally. 

Next Week is going to be interesting – Spoiler Alert!

For everybody working in ICS, next week is going to be pretty interesting,

Domino 10.0.1 together with Notes Client 10.0.1 (including the Mac Version) is going to be published next week, on December 18th, to be precise.

Verse on-Premises 1.0.6 is also coming out, I just can´t wait to start using it, because if I remember the feature list correctly…ics….support….. 😀 Fireworks! 🙂

The new Domino Community and Notes Community 10.0.1 Server will also be released, so the developers can develop their applications on Domino without any licensing costs. There was also a rumor to change the license so it can be used in production (FOR FREE) for a certain number of users, also for MAIL. I think this is a great idea. Create a few Docker Containers for Mail and Development, no Licensing Costs, imagine that!

 

 

IBM Application Access – Support on Windows Terminal Servers

Every now and then we have a customer who would like to use  the IBM/HCL Notes or ICAA Client on Windows Terminal Servers, but this is officially not supported. Since a few days there is an Idea on “Domino Product Ideas” forum regarding this.

So if you are a customer or another Business Partner who would benefit from the Support of IBM Application Access on Windows Terminal Servers, please vote for the following Idea:

Domino v10 Premiere – A short recap from Frankfurt

The optimism, high hopes and anticipation for the Domino v10 was clearly not missing at the Bleed Yellow Party, the night before the official Domino v10 Launch event. The party was fully booked, and I really liked the event. Having everybody, people from IBM, HCL and Domino Enthusiasts, under the one roof before a big event like this felt great. A big thumbs up to DNUG for organizing this.

The Domino v10 Premiere was held at the Kap Europa Congress Centre, look at the entrance:

Pretty neat if you ask me.

The main event started at ten O’clock and was going well past twelve O´clock, so there was a lot of ground covered, new Information and some seriously cool demos! JavaScript and Node.JS was clearly a big point for many. There were a lot of new Domino and Notes features shown and explained as well as some statistics. Below are some slides I was able to catch during the presentation, sorry for the bad quality…

After the overview of the v10, Luis Guirigay showed us what is possible with Domino 10. Integration of Domino Applications with Office365, which looks great by the way, new features in IBM Verse on-Premises, Notes Client on Apple iOS (remarkable how good and clean this looks), “Webinized” Domino Applications with Teamworkr (which will be part of the Domino offering) and Domino Integration with Watson Workspace, Slack and Microsoft Teams.

And then some slides with features for the Administration and Maintenance.

This is how you can get Domino:

What is planed next:

The World Premiere of Domino V10

Next week will surely be interesting, so many events, so many new announcements.

On Monday the 8th of October I will be at the Domino V10 Bleed Yellow Party organized by DNUG, after that on Tuesday I will be attending the Champions Breakfast and Domino V10 World Premiere in Frankfurt. On Wednesday we will be having a Domino V10 World Premiere Event in Vienna, which I will also be attending.

It is going to be a very busy week. 🙂

IBM Domino/Notes 10

With IBM Domino/Notes 10 Beta 2 released recently, I am extremely excited about the new version. I think that Domino and Notes was never at better health, we have many new features announced, many off them implemented in the Beta version and the marketing has gotten a lot better.

If you are interested about the new features and the Domino and Notes roadmap, feel free to contact me. Look, I also have my first IBM Badge to brag about it. 😉
