#TheWayToMigrate off of IBM Lotus Notes and Domino

LDC Via just released a new white paper entitled “LDC Via: a new way to migrate“. I highly recommend that you go and read the whitepaper and schedule some time with the folks at LDC Via. Tell them I sent you. If you are at IBM Connect in Orlando, it would be great to find Ben, Matt, Mark or Julian and see first hand how easy you can move your data off of IBM Lotus Notes and Domino.

XPages Developer in California Wanted

Would you be kind enough to post on your blogs/FB pages that Princess Cruises has a FT position open for an XPages/Domino developer.

Great benefits package and plenty of work. If you know someone who is interested, please have them contact me via email so I can give them a reference.

Liberate Your IBM Notes and Domino Data!

Just in case you missed the LDC Via webinar earlier this week on how to liberate your IBM Lotus Notes and Domino data, you can watch it right here, right now.

Without completing a migration successfully, you can be left with an expensive-to-own infrastructure that delivers limited value, where the necessary skills to maintain and enhance it are increasingly hard to come by.

LDC Via completes the migration picture by providing an ideal new home for data and applications previously on Domino.

The time is now to really consider the future of your Notes and Domino data and applicaitons.

You Won’t Want to Miss this, Seriously

On Tuesday, January 12th, 2016, LDV Via will be hosting a webinar entitled “Introducing LDC Via”. I highly encourage that each and every IBM Notes/Domino customer attend this webinar.

In this webinar you will learn what LDC Via is, and why it’s a great fit for Notes / Domino customers and technologists. Then we will delve deeper into how to work with LDC Via to build collaborative applications.

Seriously folks, take an hour out of your busy day to see how LDC Via can liberate your IBM Notes and Domino data.
