NATO officially recognizes cyberspace as domain for war

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 11:42:53 -0500

I missed this announcement this summer, and from some quick searching, it seems most people missed it as well. On June 14th, 2016, The North Atlantic Treaty Organization added cyberspace to the definition of war, adding them to land, sea, and air. Why is that important? Let me quote from the article: Making cyberspace an official war zone means attacks carried out in that manner can trigger an Article 5 response, which is a collective action by the 28-member organization against the perpetrator of an incident aimed at any NATO-protected state. Before, only actions in traditional war frontiers -- land, sea or air -- had that potential. Let that thought sink for a moment. Given that I am reading this post the US-election and the accusations of Russia's hacking of the DNC, Hillary for America Campaign, and other potential hacks, could we see the US invoke Article 5 in the near future? ...



There is plenty of space between a Lovefest and The Sky is Falling

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 09:00:00 -0500

There is a place between "I am the Yes Man for Notes/Domino/XPages" and "Notes is Dead and I am doing something else" that many live in. I find it hard to believe that people attending MWLUG or any IBM user group didn't realize that PSC works with other technologies other than IBM. At over 100 consultants, we do many things. Mark and I both talk at events for other technologies and vendors. And we are not alone. I am not one to believe that the sky is ever falling. I was also one to never believe that any one technologist should attach themselves to a single product for their entire career. I was talking about the intersection of Notes & Domino with Microsoft Office and OpenOffice.org almost 15 years ago at Lotusphere. Diversity is not only good for the career, it is good for the brain. I also understand the passion and emotion so many people have attached to this community. Friendships have been formed that mean the world to so many. And yes, when people realize that many of th ...



Why LDC Via? The non-technical reason for our strategic partnership

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0500

Last week at MWLUG 2016, PSC was proud to announce our new strategic partnership with LDC and their Via offering. It is getting some coverage in the community, and when we get the press releases out, hopefully some press attention. I have been asked "Why?" quite a bit since that announcement. There are a bunch of technical reasons and I will let Mark talk about that. Keep an eye on his blog for the next few weeks for some specific technical discussion. But let's talk from a business point of view. What I care about is what helps me in my effort to help my current customers and get one ones. Yes, I am in sales - you all know that. So how does this fit into my sales strategy? It's really simple. We have many customers who are existing Notes client, Domino Web, & XPages customers who are looking for options to move their applications off the platform. Let's put all the emotional stuff aside, but this year has seen a massive increase on that request. And it's no secret that PSC has ...

The fork in the road - the Application Modernization Roadmap for Notes Domino XPages customers

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 14:17:33 -0500

Here are the slides for our sponsor session at MWLUG 2016. I was joined by a guest speaker - Mark Roden - and we announced our new partnership with LDC around their Via product. Much more to come over the next few weeks. For the past five years, PSC has presented at conferences all over the world sharing our vision of how applying a modernization methodology to Notes & Domino can lead to major improvements in user adoption and accessibility. The impact is felt by the user, the developer, and the ROI of the application. During this time, we have been successfully applying the same proven processes to other technologies outside of the ICS realm. It is now time to bring those worlds together. There are a lot of questions in the community about what to do with our applications given the change in Notes/Domino application development roadmap. This session will give you the PSC perspective on your options. It will include our vision for IBM XPages, including IBM Bluemix and will highlig ...

MWLUG 2016: Kathy & Shean talk Using Dashboards to Transform Application Data Visualization

Mon, 1 Aug 2016 10:00:00 -0500

My colleges and fellow IBM Champions Kathy Brown & Shean McManus are giving this session at MWLUG 2016 in Austin on August 17-19th, 2016. Here is the abstract: When you're driving a car, you need a lot of data quickly. How fast are you going? Are there any problems you need to address? Where do you get that data at a glance? Your dashboard, of course. All the info you need at your finger tips, easily understood. Your applications have a lot of data and important information, but can your users get to it quickly? Can they easily spot issues or know what they need to do right now? Shean and Kathy will take you for a test drive through some XPage application dashboards. They will demonstrate how to move away from email-driven tasks and buried information to show you how you can easily visualize your critical business data. Come see how an application can provide a visually striking, functional, and easy to use Data Visualization for common workflow actions, important info, charts, and ...
