    IBM Domino/Notes  10.0.1 are in Gold Candidate status. I think we are few weeks away from Web Posting state and availability.

    A lot of cool things will be available in 10.0.1, AutoUpdate of clients, built on Google AutoUpdate engine, as well I am looking forward new search engine that will be enabled by default Apache Tika. Search is one of great improvements of Notes 10.

      IBM TDI/SDI tuning guide

      Vladislav Tatarincev  9 November 2018 11:29:30

      Many of us use TDI (Tivoli Directory integrator) or new name is IBM Security Directory integrator.
      On IBM Identity Management training where TDI (let me use old name) is also used, and we came across tuning of TDI.

      For large Connections environments tuning might be needed, great guide. Even from 2010, still a lot of valuable information.

        No more sales and Technical exams are required to sell IBM Domino

        Today IBM has updated IBM Messaging and Collaboration product group Certification requirements. No more Sales or Technical exams are required to sell IBM Domino.

        While the intention is quite clear, to extend number of seats, I am a bit sceptic that people without proper knowledge can understand Notes licensing and PVU calculations, or plan deployment.
        So far it is not clear if partners who have certificates will have advantage, lets wait for @IBM clarification.

        Domino is a Swiss knife for Enterprise, or Ferrari from Software point of view. Beautiful software, for beginners a bit complicated, with own ideology, but software that can do a lot of things.
        I think people need some knowledge to sell it, and loyal old partners of IBM should have benefit or advantage in selling software professionally.

        As IBM Instructor from 2004 and DUAL PCLP Certified in all releases from 5->8.5  I am thirsty to hear about Certification for Notes 10/Domino 10 as Administrator, Developer and Instructor.

        For Domino 9 I have created my own 6 days Training class, and seems with things that were added in Domino 10 course will grow to 7 days. If interested in Training, check page here.
