Best & Worst of Lotus 2010 day #1 of 5
Tags :Project Vulcan IBM Collaboration toolkit Web 2.0
Day #1. A daily posting for a work week of the best and worst of 2010 in the Lotus world from my eyes.
Best - Project Vulcan
The announcement of Lotus continually inventing and moving forward was well received. Everyone is waiting patiently for more news, to probably come at Lotusphere 2011. Ed Brill just announced the IBM collaboration toolkit availability, giving a hint of what is to come. Some screenshots have leaked to the web and it looks to be a Web 2.0 UI in purest form. I know of many partners and customers looking for the next big thing to win over new and existing Lotus software customers. It also reportedly brings in streams of activity (according to the Lotusphere 2010 session covering that).
Worst - Project Vulcan
The original announcement left everyone going, what just happened? How does this fit? When do we see something in our hands? Is it real? The idea of a web only interface did scare me into thinking the possible end of the Lotus client. Demos shown on YouTube show an embedded browser in the Notes client and then more with the web interface. What happens to local replicas, id files and more?
I only listed it here because there is so much more to learn and it has been a long time since the original announcement.
