Nyheter i Domino 10, Domino 11 och lite om Connections

Posted by:

Sista veckan i februari höll HCL öppet hus i Milano och pratade om vad de planerar att göra med IBM Collaboration produkterna, som de håller på att köpa från IBM. Precis innan det var det IBM Think 2019 i San Francisco, där också en hel del nytt presenterades för framförallt Domino. Beträffande själva köpet så vet vi inte så mycket mer än att allt tyder på att det verkar bli av och att HCL tänker ge Domino en nystart.

 

Några spännande grejor som ser ut att komma med Domino 11 under Q4 2019.

 

  1. Domino som Elastic Search provider. Elastic Search kommer äntligen att kunna ersätta Dominos fulltextindex, som i mina ögon överlevt sig själv med många år. För att inte störa bakåtkompabiliteten kan Elastic aktiveras applikation för applikation.

 

  1. HTTP-autentisering mot ID Vault vilket bl.a. förenklar lösenordshantering. ID Vault blir i allt bättre med APIer etc., vilket i sig fått Dominos katalog att fungera lite mer som t.ex. Active Directory. som t.ex. inte haft Dominos problem med t.ex dubbla lösenord och klientberoenden.

 

  1. Apropå Active Directory så kommer också en helt ny AD synk.

 

  1. Ny installerare – InstallAnywhere 2018 ersätter InstallShield som gick ur tiden för länge sedan

 

  1. Domino Publisher – Snärtigare eventhanterare för både publicering- och prenumerationer knutna till databasevents och document events.

 

To be continued…. Jag skall försöka uppdatera den här posten efterhand som mer information släpps från HCL och IBM

 

Nya Domino 10 funktioner som redan släppts eller släpps efterhand

 

  1. En app (Domino Mobile Apps, kodnamn Nomad) som kör traditionella Notes-applikationer direkt från Ipads sluttestas just nu och efter den kommer även Nomad för iPhone, Android och ChromeOS. Apple versionerna av Nomad verkar distribueras via Apples B2B app store. Infoware har testat Nomad med gott resultat och vi följer utvecklingen.

 

  1. Notes-applikationsstöd som WebAssembly komponent. Nomad är också byggd för att kunna kompileras enligt WebAssembly-standarden. WebAssembly är en ny standard för att köra binärer på webb oavsett webbläsare. Web browser pluginen verkar alltså komma tillbaka, men betydligt tunnare och mer standardbaserad än tidigare. Tillsammans med ID-Vault för både Notes och http så kan det nog bli riktigt smidigt att köra både webb- och traditionella Notes applikationer från både webbläsare och mobiler https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebAssembly

 

  1. Domino Query Language

 

DQL – Domino Query Language släpptes i december 2018 med Domino 10.0.1. DQL är ett nytt blixtsnabbt sätt/API/Språk för att hämta data från Domino. Om jag förstått det rätt så kommer DQL t.ex. att kunna ersätta t.ex. sök och NoteCollections i Domino applikationer.

 

  1. Domino Query Language Explorer är en Notes databas byggd för att testa DQL och få frågorna översatta till java, lotusscript eller javascript.

Presentationen är 11 minuter. Riktigt snyggt.

 

  1. Domino AppDev Pack 1.0 har släpptes tillsammans med Domino 10.0.1 och nu siktar HCL på att följa upp det med en ny release varje kvartal. Målet med Domino AppDev pack är att möjliggöra modernare Domino utveckling baserat på Node.js, javascript tillsammans med Domino Query Language.

 

Connections framtid, vad händer där?

HCL verkar satsa lika hårt här, även om planerna inte verkar lika klara som för Domino. Några saker har dock sipprat ut

  1. Release-tempot ökas upp till ett nytt Feature pack per kvartal och paketen utlovas att innehålla mer nytt. Senast nu under Q1 släpptes IC6 CR4 med bland annat en funktion för att dela enskilda filer externt m.h.a. direktlänkar som sedan inte kräver inloggning. Den funktionen har iallafall jag längtat efter. Infoware släpper förresten DomainPatrol Social support för IC6 CR4 nu i dagarna.
  2. IBM Connections kund-Jams för att samla input framåt är igång nu i stil med HCLs Jams inför Domino 10 och senast Domino 11

DomainPatrol Social and Social Connections

Posted by:

Let us present to you the perfect way to keep your IBM Connections environment in shape!

DomainPatrol Social is a very competent product which solves most challenges both IT and Business experience. Certainly when it comes to Content and User Administration in IBM Connections.

For example if you have several communities, with similar purpose or content, you can use the function Merge Communities to merge them into one Community. Or Move Communities in and out of one another. The same applies to all kinds of content including Files, Blogs, Wikis, Libraries and Activities.

New projects starts, others end. The organization is constantly changing and consequently your needs.

Other situations we can solve is when people get new roles in your organization or leaves the organization. Orphan content is a common problem and DomainPatrol Social has several ways to solve it. One is Complete User Management for Files, Blogs, Wikis. Another is Copy User Access to transfer all, or some of the access that user A had to user B and/or user C. Problem solved!

Sometimes one user ends up with two profiles in IBM Connections. Perhaps they started off as a consultant or external user and now they are permanent employees. No worries. Use the function Merge Profiles. All content from both profiles are merged into one. Phew! No more unhappy users that can't access their stuff.

Make sure your users trust IBM Connections with their highly valued business content.

Contact us for more information, or meet us at Social Connections in Toronto!

Quotas on demand, Social Connections and an interview

Posted by:

October is drawing to a close and I thought I'd talk about a few things that's in the air right now.

As you may know we recently released DomainPatrol Social 7 with a much demanded functionality for quota management. It's fascinating really, I heard it first from a business partner colleague at Social Connections in Boston last winter, and after that it popped up like a Jack-in-the-box here and there from customers and colleagues all through spring. "We need to be able to set our quota values in IBM Connections." I thought that this is too much to ignore, so I talked to my develeopers and BAM, the feature was done in no time. Really proud of their hard work and devotion.

And I'm extra glad that we could ship the super fresh release to waiting customers that has requested it. Like a mini Christmas if you wish. 🙂

It's also only one week to Social Connections in Stuttgart. One week! When did that happened? I thought I had much more time to prepare than this. Since I am part of the organizing team I actually breath Social Connections right now. How many attendees is coming (a LOT), will I see any good sessions (YES), will it be super fun to meet my friends in the community and the team (very much YES).

Naturally I look forward to work in Infoware's booth at the event. I have a newly hatched version of DomainPatrol Social with me! Can't wait to show it to the attendees at Social Connections!

On that note, last week I did an interview with SocialBizUG.org on why you should attend the event. Why not check it out. While I have your attention, I mean.

Last, but not least I wish you a very relaxing weekend! Irrespective if you celebrate Halloween, All Saints Day or just a moment of "sofa hang" as we say in Sweden.

See you in November!

/Maria

We’re adding Quota Management for Files to DomainPatrol Social

Posted by:

The heat wave in Stockholm right now is making us all longing for a relaxing hammock instead of sitting inside the office. Regardless of that, we are happy to be enjoying a huge interest for DomainPatrol Social from all over the world.

The feedback we hear from our customers is that it has never been so easy to administer their IBM Connections environment. DomainPatrol Social opens up possibilities to do things you normally can't do in IBM Connections. Such as Merging Communitites, even one external with an internal one. The feature Merge Profiles is also a popular one. When companies hiring former temporary employees the users often end up with 2 profiles.

The next release of DomainPatrol will include a function our customers have had high up on their wish list. We are talking about Quota Management for Files! You will finally be able to set quota on both user level and community level. And also manage quota policies. Good, huh?

And we're not stopping there. We are currently working on several features to make DomainPatrol Social the most competent and qualified tool for IBM Connections on the market.

Contact us directly to try it out for free or just to let us tell you more.
