    IBM Verse Cannibalizing Notes

    Eugen Tarnow  August 5 2015 12:45:47 AM
    Not only is Notes dying out because it has very few customers left, not only has Notes not had any significant improvements for years, but now IBM Verse is actually cannibalizing Notes.  

    I went on the IBM Notes product page - http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/ibmnotes - and I find IBM Verse (see screen print below).

    The reason I looked for this page to start with was that I kept getting emails about IBM Verse and I see it around and I remember that IBM had thought it imprudent to market Notes for the last ten or so years.  I thought perhaps IBM Verse is going into IBM Notes so I did a search on "IBM Notes" AND "IBM Verse".  And what I found was the Notes product page comarketing IBM Verse.

    Curiously, the IBM Notes page is simply called "IBM Notes".  The IBM Verse page is called  "IBM Verse - Business Email Solution".  I guess that makes IBM Notes a solution for what?

    I don't get it.  Do you?

      The sad state of affairs of US citizen IT workers

      Eugen Tarnow  June 25 2015 09:30:38 AM
      Of all publications, the New York Review of Books just covered the now 15 year pickle US citizen IT workers find ourselves in.  The article is very good - see http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2015/jul/09/frenzy-about-high-tech-talent/ .  

      Among the quotes:

      "A 2014 study by the National Science Board found that of 19.5 million holders of degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, only 5.4 million were working in those fields, and a good question is what they do instead. The Center for Economic Policy and Research, tracing graduates from 2010 through 2014, discovered that 28 percent of engineers and 38 percent of computer sciencetists were either unemployed or holding jobs that did not need their training"

      "Only four of the top ten companies receiving United States patents last year were United States companies."

      Most media only cover the corporate myth of not enough talent.  Once every few years they get the story right.

      Lotus Notes now imcompatible with Excel data?

      Eugen Tarnow  May 12 2015 03:57:19 PM
      I used to get Excel data and import it into Lotus Notes without any problems.

      Not quite true - I had to export the Excel data to Lotus 1-2-3 and then import the Lotus 1-2-3 data into Lotus Notes.  But once I got that going it was very convenient.

      Now it seems that IBM and Microsoft has got together just to stop this process.  Excel no longer exports into Lotus 1-2-3.  If I choose to move the Excel data into a csv file, Lotus Notes 9 no longer imports data from csv files.  If I export the Excel data into a tabular format, the Lotus Notes importer cannot import it correctly.

      I found an IBM support document from 2008 pointing out the same issue: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21098837

      I see that one can write a LotusScript program to do it.  Any other solutions?  Any chance IBM can fix this?

      Why didn’t Amazon partner with IBM’s Lotus Notes?

      Eugen Tarnow  January 29 2015 09:17:53 AM
      Apple partnered with IBM.  

      But Amazon just announced their own product WorkMail instead ( http://aws.amazon.com/workmail/ ).  Why didn't Amazon just call IBM and see if they could partner with Lotus Notes instead?

      Lotus Notes is a superior product.  If you are interested in finding out more call us.  We have a document that outlines the opportunities and challenges associated with a Lotus Notes partnership.  We also have suggestions for who should be interested.

      The Wall Street Journal article about WorkMail ( http://www.wsj.com/articles/amazon-starts-selling-an-email-service-to-companies-1422468169 ) failed to mention Lotus Notes as a competitor.  The Wall Street Journal is wrong.  Lotus Notes is a competitor.

      Whether IBM is interested in a partnership is not known but they did accept Apple.

      Sony Pictures: would the email have been more secure had it stayed in Lotus Notes and had it been archived?

      Eugen Tarnow  December 19 2014 02:07:30 PM
      One of the advantages of archiving email is that most of the email storage is removed from immediate view.  ReduceMail Pro archives email so that the majority of the archived content is not in the mailfiles themselves.  The archive mail can be retrieved from the mailfiles but it is typically a manual process.

      Would so much email at Sony Pictures been hacked if they had stayed with Lotus Notes and perhaps used ReduceMail Pro?  We hope not.

      No way IRS relies on local desktops to store email

      Eugen Tarnow  June 16 2014 09:16:51 PM
      The claim in the media is that Lois Lerner lost her emails because of a crashing hard disk.  

      This does not seem believable.  

      The IRS surely stores all mail on servers, not on local desktops.  And there must be journaling systems that capture all incoming and outgoing emails in a separate place.

      Does anybody know whether the IRS still uses Lotus Notes or went over to Outlook?

        Compassionate Release system takes 5 month to develop - they should use Lotus Notes!

        Eugen Tarnow  May 23 2013 12:17:51 PM
        U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General came out with a report in April that shows that "compassionate release", a program that allows prisoners to go
         free within 18 months of their estimated death, is not working.  They made a suggestion to the Federal Bureau of Prisons to create an electronic workflow system to make
        the process faster.  The Prison bureau responded with a proposed date for a new system of September.  That is five months!

        Would such a system take any more than a couple weeks to develop using Lotus Notes?

        The
        ReduceMail Pro team is very excited give our full attention to all companies who use Notes mail.

          Any thoughts on the new Lotus Notes team at IBM?

          Eugen Tarnow  April 1 2013 09:24:16 AM
          I understand that Ed Brill is no longer with the team.  Does anybody know what other changes there were and whether those changes might be positive for Notes?
