SUTOL Symposium 2019 – Looking back

SUTOL Symposium in Prague took place a week after the successful Engage conference in Brussels. This spring event, which is not as technically focused as the autumn SUTOL conference, has been held regularly for 25 years (first organized by Lotus, IBM and SUTOL in the last few years), which is almost unbelievable.

One era is over (IBM) and another is starting because HCL Digital Solutions has become the main partner of the event. Thanks.

The SUTOL Symposium is specific in that most presentations are exclusively in Czech (except for the opening keynote). However, the event was attended by over 100 people. This is a very beautiful number in such a small region.

For this occasion, everyone received a yellow t-shirt and we could make a unique group photo of the “big yellow family”.

A great pleasure was the opening keynote personally presented by Richard Jefts. Richard is the Vice President and General Manager of HCL’s Collaborative Workflow Platform business. As always, it was an interesting presentation with clear goals that HCL had set and fulfilled at a fast pace. He showed plans for the future.

Also arrived Uffe Sorensen (Global Director of DS Strategy at HCL Software). He was not here for the first time. This time as a member of the HCL team.

As always, we have tried to make presentations balanced for both Administrators, Developers, and Notes users.

A detailed program and presentations can be viewed at www.sutol.cz

The full house stayed to the very end and there were many people who told me during the day and especially at the end that the event was very enjoyable and sees the true effort of HCL and hope for the rebirth of Domino/Notes.

During the day, a lot of us posted information from the conference on Twitter and if I look at the feedback on my Twitter, the event has also received a response from abroad. Thanks for the feedback.

At the end of the Symposium, we immediately held an organizational team meeting and booked a date for the autumn technical conference. I will not publish the term yet, but it is again in November. We believe that we will show you Domino / Notes V11, that everything will be under the wings of HCL and there will be a lot of things that could not be published at this time.

  • Thanks again to Richard Jefts and Uffe Sorensen.
  • Thank you to all the colleagues who took care of the presentations.
  • I would like to thank all colleagues who participated in the preparation of the symposium.
  • Especially thanks to everyone who arrived.

Goodbye in November.

Engage 2019 – Summary

How to start? Simply. Great place, great program, great news, great weather …. but only two days 😉

After a year I went to the Engage conference again. It was my first visit to Brussels and because I knew that the program would be difficult, I started a little earlier, studied the guidebook of Brussels and during Monday he could see the most important places like Square Grand-Place, Manneken-Pis,The Royal Palace, Brussels Park, buildings of the Parlamentarium, the European Parliament and the European Commission, Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, a lot chocolate and truffle shops, waffles, but most of all I was looking forward to the Parc du Cinquantenaire and Autoworld where the conference took place.



After a long drive, it was added a 15 km walk. Completely destroyed, but beer with Czech friends Jan Krejcarek and Martin Pradny and for the assistance of Oliver Busse was a great medicine for a tired body.

The conference could begin…..

The absolute amazing place of the museum of cars captivated me.

Already before the conference, I prepared a list of tracks using a mobile application created by Paul Harrison.

I am not a developer and so I was especially interested in news about Domino / Notes 11, mobile applications, HCL partner program, etc.

The conference was opened by Theo Heselmans. Thanks to him and his wife for organizing such an event. It had to be a lot of work. Big THANKS again!

During the introductory Keynote I got a big surprise when I enjoyed a few seconds of fame in the presentation of MarvelClient Upgrade by Florian Vogler – CEO Panagenda.

More than 80 sessions started after Speed Sponsoring
Note: The great performance of the girls Sharon James and Stephanie Heit from BCC.

Mobile access

  • Domino Mobile Apps on iPhone and Android (will be Beta soon – you can register surveymonkey.com/r/XXBFP6N)
  • Let us open the personal mail DB in Domino Mobile Apps = IN DEVELOPMENT
  • MarvelClient for iOS and Domino Mobile Apps (I hope to be able to test)

Domino/Notes 11

  • Major change – HCL Domino will enforce licenses!
  • New look for Notes 11
  • Multiple Dictionaries Support
  • Meetings > 24 Hour Support
  • Notes client – Export As PDF Support
  • Support for TLS 1.2
  • Open JVM 8 support
  • Sametime 10 entry will be soon
  • Password sync in Domino 11

Others

  • many interesting Round Tables
  • IBM Champions become HCL Masters
  • I met a lot of people “live”. Not only on social networks.

It was much, much more. We have to absorb all this information.

Although very tired, I got into the car right after the conference and repeated (next 11 hours) the experiences of amazing conference.

I’m already looking forward to next year……..
