2010-01-18 IBM Unveils a New Vision for Collaboration for a Smarter Planet

by Volker Weber

This is a quote from a 31 month old press release:

The capabilities of IBM Project Vulcan will be delivered in future releases of products such as LotusLive, Lotus Notes and Domino, Lotus Connections, Quickr and WebSphere Portal.

Has IBM delivered any product with those capabilities yet?

Comments

An outsider's view... from what I could deduce from Lotusphere's opening session this year Vulcan technology would appear in Connections 4 (is that shipping yet?) and Notes Social Edition. It'll be interesting to see if it looks and functions like the early screenshots and demo movies. Things change in going from the drawing board to the actual pixels and code, but that's true of any software vendor, not just IBM. Anyone who was at Lotusphere to see the first ever images of Quickr, and then experienced the eventual product, will agree on that.

Last year I was told by an IBM VP that Connections 4 would be shipping in 1Q2012 and Notes Social Edition a quarter later. Neither has shipped yet.

Maybe, but a 31 month-period provides time enough for renaming-steering-commitees that nobody could identify and find it any more ... ;-)

30 month ago I wrote "I think of Project Vulcan as Connections 4.0"

If IBM had told Notes/Domino shops back then that Connections 4.0 IS Project Vulcan, IBM would have sold Connections to many more customers by now.

Volker, as informed as you allways are, I assume the timing of this article is intentional. I can't comment on release plan publicly, but I expect it soon.
