3 Things I Took Away from IBM Connect Watching from Afar

Here are the three biggest things that resonated for me most about IBM Connect 2014. Keep in mind that I wasn’t there, but I was watching via the LiveStreams, tweets and other social venues:

  1. IBM Connections is now the flagship product for IBM Collaboration Solutions (or as it’s now known “Smarter Workforce”). All hail the new king.
  2. While IBM is still “committed” to Notes, Domino and XPages, I’m thinking that this really means that they will be supplying point releases which address fixes and minor improvements. This will keep existing customers happy.
  3. Announcing a reinvented email client was a good political and strategic move. The one thing that is truly required for this new client to really be embraced is having an IBM Connections deployment. Not only a vibrant deployment, but one that is really being used by employees.

What are your three takeaways from IBM Connect 2014?

  1. One thing mentioned was that Domino is the strategic mail back-end. No mention of Notes. So, mail next will be Domino based. That should also keep existing customers happy.
