IBM-chef Uffe Sørensen: Derfor siver Lotus-brugerne væk
Big Blues europæiske Lotus-direktør, danske Uffe Sørensen, fortæller til Computerworld, at it-giganten allerede nu kan mærke, at kunderne lige så stille begynder at fordampe fra Lotus Notes. Han regner da også med, at der inden for fem til 10 år vil være markant færre Notes-kunder.
"Vi vil stadig levere de samme services med mail og kalender, men det sker bare på andre platforme som eksempelvis mobiltelefoner og i browsere," forklarer Uffe Sørensen og fastslår, at antallet af IBM-kunder dermed ikke vil falde.

"E-mail kører på vores Domino-servere, og jeg tror bare, at antallet af folk med brug for det rige Notes-miljø vil være formindsket. Jeg ville dog aldrig selv skrive en kompleks e-mail på min mobiltelefon, og der vil selvfølgelig stadig være kunder, der foretrækker Notes-klienten frem for andre platforme," lyder det fra Uffe Sørensen.
Dræber ikke Notes-klienten
Dermed bakker han op omkring Lotus-boss Alistair Rennies udsagn om, at IBM fortsat vil pumpe investeringsmidler i Lotus Notes, men det er på andre platforme, at selskabet for alvor hejser sejlene.
"Vi dræber ikke Notes-klienten, men vi leverer bare de samme services på andre klienter, selv om de helt store forandringer nok ikke sker lige nu og her," siger Uffe Sørensen...

Cloud at Pulse 2012
According to a new IBM survey, business and IT leaders expect to more than double cloud implementations over the next three years, establishing business infrastructures that drive innovation and revenue. Enterprises see the value of cloud but face a unique set of challenges around security, integration and standards as they leverage cloud beyond the virtualization of data centers.
A major focus of Pulse 2012, the cloud curriculum will feature an array of high profile industry analysts and visionaries, leading enterprise clients from around the globe, and senior-level IBM executives. Specific cloud attractions at Pulse 2012 include an executive cloud keynote, cloud demos, expo theater presentations, birds-of-a-feather sessions, meet-the-experts, a cloud-simulator and over 20 breakouts.

Building private cloud solutions with IBM
An event for European Consultants and Systems integratorsIBM Montpellier, France – March 29th - 30th
A private cloud allows you to offer your customers the benefits of cloud computing – self-service, automation, consolidation and metered usage – behind the safety of their firewall on their own virtual private network.
Being able to build successful private clouds environments is key for your business.
IBM offers multiple pathways for deploying private clouds, ranging from high-touch service engagements, which will take on the entire task of bringing cloud computing to a customer based on their specific needs, to integrated “quick start” solutions such as IBM Service Delivery Manager. For customers who prefer to perform their own integration of private clouds, IBM provides a choice of hardware and software building blocks, along with recommendations and a reference architecture that will help lead the way to a successful deployment.
This one-and-a-half day workshop will go into the details of these solutions. It is targeted specifically at Consultants & System Integrators.
