I bet that Dennis Howlett is going to enjoy this one quite a bit 😉 I am pretty sure that by now most of you folks out there have been exposed in one way or another to one of IBM‘s major announcements in months! Yes, that is right! The moment that quite a few of us have been waiting for, after putting to the test several different betas month after month of one of the most powerful collaboration tools available out there: Lotus Notes.
As you may have guessed already, you would be able to find all of the various information details on the announcement and whatever else may be happening over at Ed Brill’s weblog. I am sure that you would be able to get all of the details you need from his Web site, but just in case you may want to get a little bit of a teaser to see where all of this excitement comes from, let me share with you a couple of links you may find interesting to get you going:
— To get you going a short demo on some of the most powerful new features put together for this particular release, where you would be able to see how Lotus Notes 8 is just so much more than just another e-mail and calendaring client.
— And secondly, here is a YouTube video, referenced by Volker as well, in which Ron Sebastian, executive architect for Lotus Software, gives you a 10 minute tour of some of the new functionality provided. Worth while a look if you would want to see it running live:
I will not entertain you any longer. I will just let you go and get right into the action following up what Ed and other folks have got to say about this major announcement from IBM in the collaboration space and from here onwards and over the next few weeks, months, I am hoping to be able to share some further insights as to why I feel this particular release will prove that Notes is just a whole lot more than just an e-mail client. But one step at a time. First, let’s go and download it today!
