IBM Announces a Change is Coming to the Notes & Domino Life Cycle Policy


IBM recently posted this announcement. This is really an announcement that there will be an announcement.  Lets take a guess at what could be coming.

DOCOVA SE Migration Case Study – Bradock Consulting


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.  These databases were heavily customized to provide for far more complex workflow, external system integration and reporting than could be provided by the standard "out of the box" IBM product.

DOCOVA on a Mac

Today I was given access to a test instance and was hitting it with my Macbook and Safari. As you can see from the image below the basic functionality is now working. There is no client component by default, so for the general user this will be fine. If they need to [...]
