DB2 on Cloud is renaming and something else is now Db2 on Cloud??

IBM sent a very confusing email about DB2 on Cloud and renaming. I will just leave this here
On June 22 a number of products will be renamed in our Db2 family of products
That's right, Db2
"DB2 on Cloud" will be renamed "Db2 Hosted" and "dashDB for transactions" will be renamed "Db2 on Cloud.

Now notice the DB becomes Db in the new name. I am not sure if that was a typo or on purpose to differentiate the products. Either way taking a product name and swapping a new product into it already confused me.

IBM Connections Cloud enhancements for May 2017

IBM has released what's new for IBM Connections Cloud for May 2017. Here is some of the updates

Verse

Verse: Calendar delegation

Need to view or manage the calendars of others? You can now use IBM Verse to add people who have given you access to their calendar using IBM Notes. Add them to the Delegation panel, and open any managed calendar in a separate browser tab. When a new calendar notice arrives, you'll be alerted by a red badge in the calendar's browser tab.

Alain Amadou gave Kelly Hardart delegated access to manage Alain's calendar using IBM Notes*. See how easy it is for Kelly to set up and monitor Alain's calendar in IBM Verse.

1. Get the button to open the Delegation panel


The first thing Kelly needs to do is get a button added to the navigation bar. The button will open the Delegation panel where she can manage calendars.

Goodbye to IBM Open Mic Webcasts - hello JUMP sessions

IBM Open Mic Webcasts have been a place for you to ask anything you wanted on a specific topic with IBM engineers and support. They quietly, and not sure what the name means, now call them JUMP sessions.

I noticed this name  change only due to a small notation made in a recent email announcing a webcast (JUMP??).  However, the emails still look and read just like IBM Open Mic Webcasts.
As a valued IBM client who has contacted technical support, you are invited to participate in an IBM Support Technical Exchange session

So check your emails for this new name JUMP Sessions and make sure to join the webcasts still.  Anyone know why they changed the name? Will I still be able to find recordings under Open Mic or now Jump?
