Ginni Rometty is stepping down from her role as CEO of IBM. The news brings back memories of this viral photo that friend and fellow IBM Champion Joerg Rafflensbeul captured of me with Ginni at IBM Think conference in 2018. Just more proof that the times are definitely changing. This photo was taken shortly before HCL began getting involved with the collaboration software that ultimately led to the acquisition of Notes/Domino, Sametime, Connections and several other products that HCL is turning into profit centers as they revitalize and leap forward. More about this in the next blog post. Until then, as the dolphins so eloquently put it in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: “So long and thanks for all the fish.”
It never ceases to amaze me the incredible pace that HCL is working to advance Notes & Domino products. Case in point: Domino Query Language (DQL) is now an integral part of Domino V11. Taken from Deputy General Manager, Marketing at HCL Technologies, Jan Kenney’s post:
With v11, Domino Query Language (DQL) completed its consolidation of all means of searching Domino data, using full-text indices. Join this webinar on January 30th to learn all about it! https://lnkd.in/eeYYPXw
This is the new way to search in Domino from now on. Don’t let the rapid pace of technology leave you behind. You will want to listen in for this. Be sure to register even if you can’t attend live, so you will get the link to the replay.
A footnote: Once you register, you can also add the event to your Notes calendar. Choose the iCal option. Funny how HCL Notes is the only major email client to follow the industry standard format.
