Updates from SWG Community Day

I had good intentions of writing this post right after the event, but there’s this little thing called ‘life’, which rhymes with ‘wife’ – yada, yada, yada

Anyways – SWG Community Day was an excellent user group event, with full house of Lotus/Portal users, who enjoyed a relaxing afternoon with a movie. My Lotus Collaboration booth was packed with people asking questions, wanting to see first hand Notes/Domino 8.0 with Sametime, Lotus Connections and Lotus Symphony.. too bad I only had 30min for that.
Lotus Expeditor was presented by Eyal Levin, SMB Sales Mgr., and Yuval Feller, IT architect, both colleagues from SWG. Lotus Expeditor provides a wealth of features and possibilities to build a desktop, which aggregates many services and composite applications, either web-based, client based or server managed.
My recently appointed Lotus technical sales, Alex Balk, showed how innovation is taking center stage at IBM, and what our employees are using when it comes to collaboration and social software. Lotus of course…

From one event we quickly move to the next one – LCTY Israel in March. Stayed tuned for details…

Heading to Community Day – are you?

It Monday folks, which means SWG Community Day is upon us.
I’m heading out there soon (quick lunch before… 😉

We already have over 40 participants in our session (Lotus/Portal), and they’re in for a treat.
During the welcome and networking we’ll have a collaboration booth, featuring Lotus Notes 8.0 with embed ST client, Lotus Connections, Lotus Quickr and Lotus Symphony.

Inside the hall, I’ll open the session with a quick summary of Lotusphere 2008 announcements, and some local updates – like the Collaboration Event we’re planning for sometime in March.
Then we have 2 lectures and live demos planned out: The first will showcase IBM Lotus Expeditor, the future desktop, IBM/Lotus rich client platform; The second will showcase ‘Innovation @ IBM’ – how IBMers collaborate, using the same tools and solutions available to the customers. Lotus solutions of course.

Hope to see you there !

Lotusphere, SWG Community Day and more

It’s hard to talk about anything these days other then Lotusphere happening right now in Orlando. Some of us (such as yours truly) couldn’t attend, but we have enough blogs/flickr/twitter/announcements to follow as it is. In my opinion that’s the true power of the web and collaboration for that matter – getting the feel of Lotusphere, the excitement, without actually being there in person. And I haven’t started talking about Lotusphere in Secondlife
Anyhow, things are happening other than Lotusphere which are worth mentioning, but I must link to a Lotusphere post I saw over at Rob Novak – Lotusphere 2008 Keynote Bingo (see above). Cool!

Now, to other news.
Software Group Community Day – Feb 18th 2008, Israel
Similar to the September 2007 event, the coming SWG Community Day (half-day actually) would provides a glimpse of IBM Software solutions: Information Management, Tivoli, WebSphere, Rational and Lotus (including WebSphere Portal). We’ll meet at Cinema City (again) at 3pm, 2.5 hours of professional sessions and then a movie (popcorn on us), The Kite Runner. The Lotus session will include 2 presentations: the first on a new dashboard software from IBM, SaaS (Software as a Service) based, called Sonata; the second is not final yet, but will focus on messaging and collaboration using mobile devices. Participation is free, but registration is required (phone only for now). Mark your calendars, Monday, Feb. 18th at 3pm.
