This guy was on the stage last year at Lotusphere and promised those things:
Let's check off the items that were delivered:
- Connections client? Not really.
- Sametime client? Check.
- Symphony? Nope.
- Quickr? Nope.
- BlackBerry development in Domino Designer? Not that I know of.
Hum, Connections for 1.0 yes. The other releases? Not so much.
Also, if that is a tour then I can't even get Connections 1.0 to work on that.
Quickr piece is available, but not for public consumption and has been shown during the year at some LUG events.
I'd like to see it public as I have clients asking.
there has been some delay with the Quickr client but one version is ready for launch, maybe at LS?
You missed out: Air Cover/Marketing. In all countries.
Its certainly not made it to the UK yet.
Connections 2.0.1 client does exist but 'only for selected customers' (i.e. large corporates) and needs a new server added to the infrastructure.
Wonder whether the Traveler/iPhone announcement later in the week had anything to do with this lack of delivery?
At one time I had lists of promises not kept from the OGS in 2006 through 2008. I also had a list of unkept promises made in sessions by prominent IBMers or Loti. After several years spent trying to get closure on even one of them I realized that IBM and Lotus can't be held accountable. I finally mostly moved on. It's not worth the effort to scream into the void.
Outrage is only useful if it generates results. A single person being outraged has no effect. One thousand* outraged people has no effect on IBM, either. I don't know what volume would get their attention but it hasn't been reached yet.
* I'm making a guess about the number of people who have expressed their frustrations with Lotus and IBM about various high-profile issues.
Another sign of IBM's excellent support of the Backberry platform: The brand new Sametime 8.5 ships without support of OS5 :-(
No Bold 2, no Storm 2 then. And Carl can't install it. Carl! Looks like a fustercluck to me.
Depends on your perspective. It did meet it's design req's:
+ WAS based
+ DB2 based
+ Requires a lot of con$luting to implement
+ Requires a lot of $erver hardware to implement
Just to be fair: Symphony document attachments will be now been processed by the attachment service of the recently published BES 5.0.1. If you upgrade from an earlier BES5 you have to enable the support manually.
Traveler/iPhone support is still not delivered as far as I am concerned.
Creating/accepting/modifying meetings from the iPhone still does not work, therefore it is useless for enterprise deployment.
Quickr's in beta from RIM. Far as I know.
