2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Red Pill Now has the distinct pleasure of being a Platinum sponsor for this year's MWLUG, being held in Austin, TX on August 17-19. We are also very excited that members of the Red Pill Now team have been invited to deliver a total of five sessions at this event. While IBM seems to have

Co-Existence With Notes

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

In my last post I covered some of Red Pill's thinking as to why we recommend to our customers not to rush to migrate. Ultimately organizations will move away from Notes databases simply because IBM is showing no signs it has plans to invest any further in the platform and hence will eventually discontinue support. So the

The Pitfalls of Migration

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

With IBM Notes and XPages having reached an apparent end of life most companies are now giving serious thought to what they do with their Notes applications. This usually leads to a serious consideration of migrating Notes applications to another database platform such as SQL, SharePoint, SalesForce, or Mongo DB. The future of Notes Data is perhaps the

Beyond XPages

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Early last year I did a presentation at several User Groups entitled "Beyond XPages". The presentation outlined an approach for building modern Web applications for Notes data that was not based upon XPages. We believe XPages has a shelf life of (at best) 5 years before companies will become very active in seeking to migrate to other development

Engage: A New Direction?

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

The Journey The team from Red Pill Now had an "interesting" journey to Engage when the plane carrying three of us was involved in the bombings at Brussels Airport. I have shared a detailed account of the journey and the staggeringly bad customer service provided by Delta in my personal blog at peterpresnell.com. OGS In 2010

IBM Verse: Next Impressions

2017-07-28T20:22:17+00:00

At IBM Connect this week IBM largely focused on its vision for its social collaboration platform Connections. Connections Next While IBM didn't say it, I couldn't help but think that IBM Verse is in the process of being totally integrated into Connections, to the point in which I am not sure if it would make

IBM Verse: Final Impressions

2017-07-28T20:22:17+00:00

Back in May of last year I shared my first impressions in using IBM's new e-mail client Verse. After using Verse for seven months the trial in which I had been participating came to an end. It was an interesting time as my experience with Verse caused me to look very closely at the various email clients

In 2015 it seemed like every other conference had Connect in its name. The year started with IBM ConnectEd (Orlando - Jan). This was followed by IBM InterConnect (Las Vegas - Feb), Graph Connect (San Francisco - Oct), js.connect (Atlanta - Oct), and the virtual conference Microsoft Connect(); (Nov). With so many people now having high speed Internet connectivity and larger high

Automating REST Services For Notes Data

2017-07-28T20:22:17+00:00

At Red Pill Now, we have a strong belief that the future for Notes data lies in the ability to access the data via REST services. In their wisdom IBM have decided to make REST services available for all Notes databases using Domino Data Services. Unfortunately to get DDS to run it is necessary to
