Lotus Collaboration Summit

Well done! Yesterday I joined the Lotus Collaboration Summit in Milan, a "don't miss" event since Mr Ed Brill was there as well as Monica Tassinari, Davide Pannuto, Roberto Boccadoro, Davide Iesini and Marina Artoni . I'm sure to forget someone, if so, please apologize me and send me the update.

The event takes place at Jolly Hotel in Milanofiori, and start at 09.30 with a visit at the showcase: many Italian IBM BP and the Lotus italian community Dominopoint.it. In the morning strategies, announcement (aka what's new in 8.0.1, next and behind) and news from Ed, Monica and Davide. As other big vendor IBM plan to release a major release every 2 years (wow notes 9 in '09, marketing deal!).

Lunch time: good food, red wine and a "so and so" coffee put us in the condition to desire to take a nap but in the afternoon hot topics wake we up, definitely. Hot topics includes Notes and Domino 8 (amazed about Quickr and Notes integration about email attach), Connections (yes Roberto now we've more than one reason to push this) e Quickr.

Now the tour goes on with other Italian dates including Roma (10 oct), Bologna (12 oct), Padova (16 oct), Palermo (18 oct). For me it is the last Lotus event in the year, see you in Orlando next January!
