Make sure to register for the “How to Make Domino Deployment and Monitoring Radically Easier” Webinar taking place tomorrow at 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM CET.

Join this session to learn how to create a controlled, efficient Domino deployment (regardless of where you want your servers) powered by Panopta, our new partner. You’ll learn how to get complete visibility of your Domino servers’ key health metrics in easy to use dashboards, ensure the right person is notified in case of any health or performance issues, and solve problems with automated remediation instead of manual intervention. And, with much of the configuration done out of the box, you’ll learn how to get this all up and running quickly!

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. 😉

As of 08.03.2018, the APNS Certificate used by Traveler 9.0.1.16 will expire and will not be valid anymore. For everybody who is running Traveler 9.0.1.16 this is a good time to update to a newer version. The current version of IBM Notes Traveler is 9.0.1.20.

You can also update the certificate files, as Detlev described in his blog post.

#domino2025 Jam in Vienna – I´m Jammin´

I was lucky to visit the #domino2025 Jam in Vienna, this was a pleasant and positive experience. Together with IBM, HCL was also present. We learned a few new things about the future of Domino and about the HCL.

First of all, HCL is a large and stable company with most employees in North America. They have a large revenue and experience in partnerships like this, they worked with Cisco before in a similar partnership. It is clear that this is not Outsourcing but a full partnership.

The development of Domino 10 has already started, and the first package should already be delivered in 2018 Q3. Everything involving Version 10 is called “Project Sapphire” and “Chat” is also part of it. I also like that the HCL does not want to force the customers to cloud.

After we got briefed on the new Partnership and the future of Domino we started brainstorming and presenting ideas for solutions to existing problems and ideas for features we would like to have in long-term. The word “Marketing” was mentioned a few times by every team, marketing was actually discussed most, and all participants wanted it changed from ground up.

All in all, it is clear that a lot is invested in #domino2025 initiative and that it is taken seriously by both IBM and HCL. I think that many good things are going to be produced from the domino jam and I am looking forward to Domino 10.
