Bradock Consulting was involved for more than a decade customizing and supporting an IBM Domino Document Manager based system for one of Australia's largest listed companies. The system managed in excess of 350,000 documents and drawings contained in over 250 Lotus Notes Application Databases.

In 2014 we announced that we were ending sales and support of the DLI.Uploader ActiveX component as part of our continuing focus on our flagship DOCOVA product. At that time we provided customers with the ability to continue obtaining maintenance and support for DLI.Uploader by subscribing to maintenance and support of our DOCOVA software product which included Uploader as a component. In recent years the role of ActiveX components in browser applications has been [...]
Update Feb 13, 2018 Obviously not, but there have been several recent developments. IBM announced that future development of Notes and Domino will be done by HCL. They are saying this represents renewed commitment to the product. Some see this as a cost cutting measure. Last week it was announced that Ed Brill would be leaving IBM. Ed was a pillar of the Notes and Domino community for years and was seen as the [...]

This is a video recap of the technical webinar we had on April 21, 2016. Chris Fales lead attendees through our DOCOVA Migrator. He migrated a subset of data from a Quickr place to a DOCOVA Instance.

Over the past decade SharePoint has gained market share and Notes/Domino has lost. With more and more Lotus partners being forced into migration projects, more accurate information is becoming available on how the two compare. Marten Vosmer of Lialis B.V. in the Netherlands did a session at EngageUG 2016 that described in detail his process for moving Notes/Domino applications to SharePoint. In his presentation he offered this sound byte that I found to be [...]
For a fourth year, DOCOVA attended the EngageUG conference in Europe. This year, David Wice accompanied me, giving customers the opportunity to put a face to the name of their new account manager. Dave transitioned from a technical role, spending years at DLI as a developer and consultant. We started the week by meeting with a customer in Hoofddorp, near Amsterdam, where we showed the multilingual capabilities of DOCOVA SE, the SQL edition of our product. [...]
IBM Connect 2015 was the last year "what used to be called Lotusphere" was held at the Disney complex. It was significantly scaled back, with the majority of the sessions and the showcase being in the Swan. In the past it had been spread over three or four resort hotels. For this reason, the increased registration and booth costs and the weak Canadian dollar, at DLI we scaled back our investment in IBM Connect 2016. We [...]
By default, DOCOVA V4.5 is zero footprint. That means that the majority of users who just consume content will NOT have to download any software on their computers. No browser plugins required, no compatibility view settings, and the full interface will run on most operating systems and devices. That includes Mac, Windows and iPads. For both existing and new customers, that means applications can be rolled out to more users and faster deployments. DOCOVA V4.5 [...]

Engage is sponsored by a wide variety of business partners from all over the world. DOCOVA was proud to be included. Our goal [...]
