First of all: A huge apology for my mistake in my third blog posting from Connect 2017. In this I wrote that Domino for iSeries would not be supported in the future. This is not true! I had misunderstood and the blog posting is now corrected.

Sorry for being late with following up on the Connect 2017 conference, but the last days in San Francisco just flew by like a whirlwind. And after I got home I was stuck on the couch with flu like symptoms. But now I’m ready to talk to you about the future of IBM Connections, which is pink!

Connections Futures – IBM Connect Review #3 

By Gabriella Davis | 3/1/17 5:18 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

We interrupt this blog to apologise. Usually I like to sanity check my statements before publishing them but 80%+ of presentations from IBM Connect are missing online. That means my notes are all I have right now.

Our Views On Connect 2017 

By Red Pill Now | 2/28/17 2:48 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Last week Devin Olson and myself had the chance to attend IBM Connect 2017 in San Francisco. It was a new venue in a new location combining some of the traditions of the past along with a few things new and different. I had the chance to hear IBM’s message, discuss the events with a number of the people who attended as well as share ideas internally with the team at Red Pill Now. The following is a summary of my thoughts from this year’s event.

If you’ve attended the IBM Connect conference in recent years, or if you’re part of the IBM Collaboration Solutions user community, you probably know—or know of—Julian Robichaux.

I promised a summary of the second part of the Opening General Session. And I will include it here, but this posting is mostly about the future of IBM Notes and Domino. It’s based around four separate sessions and lectures about the strategy around and development on the Notes and Domino platform.

IBM Connect 2017 #2: Cognitive Cognitive Cognitive 

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 2/24/17 2:42 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Last year I was quoted on Twitter saying “If you hated the word social, get ready to hate the word ‘cognitive’.” Boy is that word thrown out a lot by IBM these days. Not least the opening general session at Connect 2017 here at Moscone West in San Francisco.

IBM Connect 2017 highlights the Negative and Emotional Impact of IBM’s Co-Location policy 

By John Head | 2/23/17 6:15 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

The effects of IBM's new co-location policy have hit close to home this week at IBM Connect 2017. I have had numerous IBMers basically say good-bye this week. They either have been given their notice and have no intention of moving, or they see the writing on the wall. Some are even leaving IBM immediately after the conference.

IBM Connect 2017 Opening General Session 

By Volker Weber | 2/22/17 4:40 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

There are two parts, the first was at 10 am, the second part at 1 pm. I find very little in the first part interesting. Watch for Chris Crummey, the guy with the pocket square (Einstecktuch). The second one you should watch from beginning to end. If you are interested in Notes and Domino, that would be towards the end of the video.

IBM Connect, or Lotusphere, as us old people call it kicked off last night with the welcome reception and today with the Opening General Session.
