Migrations Migrations Migrations…

Posted by:

Damn. Its been a while since I blogged. Rivit has been really busy the last couple of months.

Connect 2013 – General Observations

Posted by:

I’ve attend every Lotusphere since 1995.  I’ve been a vendor for 15 of those years.  The last few years we’ve questioned the return on our investment as we saw Domino losing Market share   With this years change in direction we, like most of the community, were very skeptical about the show.    Last minute planning and some aggressive pushing from IBM got us to attend as attendee’s.  We didn’t go as a vendor.
