IBM Expands Its SaaS Offerings With LotusLive Connections

first_imgAs a major addition to its on-demand suite, IBM has unveiled LotusLive Connections at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference, where it won the Cloud Computing Technology Buyers’ Choice Award. LotusLive has long revolved around Web conferencing, with other features being somewhat secondary. The real power for the enterprise came from IBM’s Lotus Connections, which is limited to on-premise deployment. But when LotusLive Connections becomes available on June 30th, all that will change. Splitting The DifferenceLotusLive Connections lies somewhere between Lotus Connections and the cloud predecessor of LotusLive Engage. The new package doesn’t quite have the full functionality of the original Lotus Connections, and apparently will not have blogs and the Dogear bookmarking feature. What it will include is file sharing, instant messaging, and the Activities application that allows for group creation. As compared to the rest of the LotusLive panorama, Connections lacks the focus on Web conferencing that Engage has, making it akin to more social networking and document-centered software. A New Collaborative Powerhouse?Though it may suffer from having no free version other than a 30-day free trial, LotusLive Connections looks to be an excellent new addition to the spectrum of cloud-based collaboration suites. By removing the rather unusual attention on conferencing and keeping a core group of social tools, it may just grow to overshadow its sister offerings in LotusLive. steven walling Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#enterprise 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts last_img read more

Crocs, Rocks and Tropical Storms

first_imgMany of us have experienced adventure on our way to a Touch Football tournament…a flat tyre while taking that “shortcut” your mates suggested was a good idea…the after-effects of a dodgy chiko roll at a late night roadhouse…or having your luggage end up on the other side of the country. Next time you face a hurdle or two in getting to your next game, spare a thought for the Ramingining team that competed at the recent Northern Territory Touch Football Titles. For those that don’t know, Ramingining is about 530km east of Darwin in East Arnhem Land, and if you want to drive to the NT capital, the best you’ll do is seven or eight hours dodging potholes all the way to the city. Two teachers from the Ramingining School – Cam Adams and Joseph Smith – came up with the idea to get a team together from the Indigenous community, and prepare them to compete at the NT Titles.  The fact none of the boys had ever played the game before (except Cam, a former Barbarians, WA and Cook Islands representative player) did nothing to curb the enthusiasm that Cam and Joseph had for the task of competing. The plan eventually went before another teacher – Geoff Guymer – who helped draft a letter to the East Arnhem Shire and the office of Malindirri McCarthy (MP for Arnhem Land).  The Shire granted support, while Ms McCarthy contributed some of her own money to help the team.  The NT Touch budget also assisted, and from there, Cam, Joseph and the team never looked back. Ever had trouble getting players committed to training?  It wasn’t a problem with these boys, so long as they had a way to get there for the daily 4pm sessions. “Joseph and I literally had to drive around the community in our cars to pick up the boys for training”, said Cam. “A lot of people get used to having an oval to train on – you know – a flat surface, good grass cover.  For us, it was just an open space – the surface wasn’t level, and we had anthills, potholes and tree stumps to watch out for.” Training didn’t always go well, as Smith explains. “We had a public holiday the other week (in late April).  The shop was shut, so it meant most of the boys hadn’t had their usual sugar fix, so they were flat and didn’t have much energy for training.” No doubt plenty of coaches would love the commitment to attend training that this team shared.  Tribal law isn’t what it once was, but missing “ceremony”, which often meant a funeral with associated dance, is still very much an issue to the elders. “We were really impressed with the commitment of the boys to their training.  Missing ceremony in the old days meant a spear through the leg!  These days, the elders yell at them, but it’s punishment they were prepared to wear for the good of the team”, said Smith. Now think back to that “horror” trip you might have done to get to a Touch Football event, and spare a thought for the Ramingining boys, who at the start, had a pretty straight forward plan to take the bumpy road into Darwin for their first taste of Touch Football competition. “We got word about a week out that the road from Ramingining to Maningrida was impassable because of flooding, so it meant a change of plans – drive 40km, then a boat across a river – followed by a further 60km by road into Maningrida”, said Adams. “Joseph got his boat sorted – a small tinnie with a 30 horsepower motor on the back.  We loaded up all the boys & luggage, and had to move fast with a tropical storm coming in.  We hit a mud flat and had to lift the engine with everyone out to drag the boat to deeper water.  Getting wet wasn’t the problem – but we all know there are plenty of big crocs in the river!” The team eventually got across the river…and without anyone getting taken by one of the local crocodiles.  But with no car meeting them on the other side, and Smith having little luck using the local language to get help, it was looking like they might not get to their flight. Help eventually arrived, and for most of the boys, it was a nervous first flying experience.  They didn’t know much about taking to the air, but knew a plane had crashed in the Territory only a few weeks earlier. The Ramingining Men’s Open enjoyed fine dining at 30,000 feet – snacking on sandwiches and dipping biscuits in orange juice!!  And they touched down in Darwin at 6:10m….plenty of time for their first match at 6:50pm. Heading into that first game, only Cam Adams had been on a touch field before.  By the end of the weekend, the Ramingining boys had had a great time – the highlight a seven-all draw with Alice Springs. “The boys thought that was the grand final….in fact I think they still think they’ve won”, said Adams. Cam Adams was not only impressed with the commitment of the team to the game, but also how quickly the community had come to accept him since his move from Western Australia last year. “It usually takes a long time to get the trust of the community.  The fact as a new teacher I was trusted to get the boys onto this trip meant a lot to me”, said Adams. Kings of the NT Titles…Kings of Ramingining….at least for one weekend!  And they’re already planning to do it all again next year….with the help of a bigger boat.Story taken from the Northern Territory Website.last_img read more

We knew that if we kept playing that way then we could lose.”We were patient, and this is important because we created chances.”Suarez credited Ernesto Valverde with Barcelona’s stronger second half performance and the alterations the coach made at half-time.”He told us to be more organised when pressing,” Suarez said about his boss’s half-time team talk.”That’s why we have a coach, to correct these mistakes.”It’s also a compliment to the opponent because they have very quick players and they took advantage of the space we left.” last_img read more

Four more captains named for OSU football

An OSU helmet sits on the field before the 45th annual BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe naming of junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, redshirt senior center Pat Elflein and junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan as captains came as little surprise to Buckeye fans.However, OSU coach Urban Meyer announced Friday that four more names would be added to the list of captains for the season. Fifth-year senior linebacker Joe Burger, redshirt junior offensive lineman Billy Price, redshirt junior cornerback Gareon Conley and junior defensive end Tyquan Lewis were given the honor.Lewis, alongside redshirt sophomore Sam Hubbard, will be starting this season for the Buckeyes at defensive end. Last season, Lewis led the team in sacks with eight, as well as racking up 54 total tackles.Set to start for his third straight season along the offensive line for OSU, Price earned freshman All-American honors in 2014 and picked up third-team all-Big Ten recognition last season.Replacing the departed Eli Apple as the No. 1 cornerback, Conley has appeared in 28 games in his career for OSU. Meyer and cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs have turned to Conley this season to mentor the upcoming players in the secondary, since he is the only player with extensive experience at the position.Once only a walk-on with the program, Burger is looking to finish his career with the Scarlet and Gray on a high note. After earning a scholarship with the team last season, Burger played extensively on special teams, and has appeared in 34 games as a Buckeye.Each of the four players was chosen through a team vote. read more

Ohio State womens soccers poor play results in three game losing streak

Ohio State’s women’s soccer team posted an 0-2 record against Big Ten foes last weekend and, according to coach Lori Walker, the team’s performance was as poor as she’s ever seen. The weekend started for the Buckeyes with a 1-0 home defeat to Iowa Friday. Then came a 3-2 loss to Nebraska Sunday afternoon at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes (8-7-1, 3-4-1) have lost three matches in a row, with all of the defeats coming at the hands of conference foes. Coach Lori Walker was noticeably frustrated by the team’s play this weekend. “I think our team is playing about as poorly as I’ve ever seen us play,” Walker said. After being held scoreless Friday, the Buckeyes showed more energy offensively Sunday, outshooting the Cornhuskers 26 shots to 14. Despite scoring two goals, Walker said the team is struggling most on the attack. “I think that our inability to be dangerous in the final 25 yards of the field is absolutely crippling our confidence,” she said. “Although we found a couple of goals today, we are not consistently being dangerous in the last 25 yards. “You can’t outshoot a team 26 to 14 and find a way to lose 3-2 unless your attack is in the crapper right now, and ours is.” Trailing 3-1, senior defender Danielle Scoliere settled a loose ball in the box and finished from six yards out to bring the Buckeyes within a goal in the 81st minute. It was her first goal of the season. The Buckeyes dug themselves into an early second half deficit, allowing a Nebraska goal in the 50th minute. The gap swelled to 3-1 in the 71st minute when OSU gave up a breakaway goal. Junior forward Lauren Granberg tied the game in the 26th minute with her third goal of the season. After a deflected header attempt by senior forward Paige Maxwell, the ball landed in front of Granberg who finished into a wide open net level the score, 1-1. OSU fell behind early when it conceded an own goal to the Huskers in the 11th minute. October has not been kind to the Buckeyes, who are now 1-3-0 during the month. The Buckeyes continue Big Ten play this week with two away matches. OSU will face Michigan Friday at 7 p.m. and Michigan State Sunday at 12 p.m. read more
