New Paper on the IBM-HCL Deal

Market Milestone: IBM Hands Over Development of Notes, Domino, and Verse to HCL

I have a new paper on the Amalgam Insights site. Called, “Market Milestone: IBM Hands Over Development of Notes, Domino, and Verse to HCL”, it examines the new IBM-HCL deal for developing parts of the IBM collaboration platform, especially Domino, SameTime, Notes, and Verse. In the paper, I provide some context and analysis. It’s free so go have a look.

Something New and Exciting

If you have had the opportunity to go to the Amalgam Insights website today, you would have noticed that I have just joined as a Contributing Analyst. I’ve known the founder, Hyoun Park, for many years and have always respected his insights and, especially, his economic modeling skills.

As a Contributing Analyst, I will be working on research, projects, and content on collaboration and new ways of work, developer tools, IT project efficiency, governance, and methodologies, and DevOps. I will also be using my recent experience working for a large, global, bank in looking at how my research applies to regulated industries especially Financial Services.

So you can look for my insights and analysis over at the Amalgam Insights site but much of it will be mirrored here as well.

He’s back…..
