Regarding – how to fix IBM

“How to fix IBM” Please read this before you keep reading.

I have for so many years talk about IBM lack of educational support. Its not hard to imagine where would we be with some of the IBM Portfolio if they had try it 10 years ago.  Its hard to do business with IBM. They want to have it hard for people if not then they would do something about it right ?

Mr Cringely is spot in many areas like when he said.

“Under Sam’s leadership IBM began to cut quality, cut corners, and under-deliver on its commitments.  IBM squeezed every penny out of every deal without regard to the impact it would have on customers.”

IBM should have strong educational program offing Cloud solution to schools and non profits. It will increase the knowledge and inspire people when they come to the workplace.  Minimum training for the companies is a huge plus. This is what the competitor is doing. They should also supply Images for quick setup in VM or hyper-v. 

When MS bought Skype I wrote about how smart that was, why was it smart ? well they have brought there customers a tool to connect to each other  its called collaborating.  IBM should had stepped up and made external sametime user license like we have in IBM Connections external users, witch is btw a huge selling point.

If you like to see what Microsoft is doing in the future then see what IBM is doing today but that is changing FAST.  IBM WAKE UP. Don´t do what Nokia and Blackberry did.

“Sometime soon one of IBM’s competitors will implement a serious Continuous Quality Improvement program. When that happens, IBM will be toast”

Today in IBM “Respect for the individual” is dead.  So is “Superlative customer service.”  Every decision made by IBM for the last 10 years has been to find ways to spend nothing, do as little as possible, and get to $20 EPS.  IBM’s workforce is operating in survival mode. 

IBM needs to rethink there future path and think differently. Get younger people to the top level today. Ask the users.

Get more involved in the XPages community

Before i start , i have a confession to make , Am a  fan no 1 on Notesin9 and it has help me a lot in my Xpages “want to be a expert” journey. Am also a big fan of David Leedy,  he has helped me out few time when i have some issues and i proud to call him my friend.   He has a great notesin9 video  and he talks about how to get more involved in the XPages community.  And his message in the video,  just ask and if you know the answer  then answer. Blog about the success or failure you have and someone will be able to help you out or your blogging helps someone else out.

I was looking for solution when i saw his video and instead of sending emails to my friends in Germany and USA (you know who you are) or hooking up with “you” on Skype. I decided to sign up for Stack overflow and ask the question there. My very first question on stack overflow  so if you know anything about standby dialog then please post you answer there.

Great video David , I love the fileVault , looks great . Love to see a fileVault custom control !!  .  In Sept I will start a Xpages Project to create a simple CRM based on Xpages and Bootstrap. I looking forward to see this project come to live.

and I aim to give this away on openntf when its done. With help from the community this will be possible.

Getting Total Value from View column

Am Puzzled, So I looking to you guys , Here is what am trying to do.

Getting Total amount  from a flat view with one Column that keeps Total Sales of many documents.

Getting Total sale into a XPages form using computedField

I have tried this

var key = viewRow.getColumnValue(“Totalsale”);
var lookup = @DbLookup(@DbName(), “MyTotelSale”, key, 12);
return lookup

and from Notesin9 from my friend David. His solution is based on Key and its works like a charm where i use a KEY. but not in this case.

var cView:NotesView = database.getView(“vOrders”);
var nav:NotesViewNavigator = cView.createViewNav();

// Since you can’t do ‘getCategory’ – find the first doc and backup 1
var entry:NotesViewEntry = cView.getEntryByKey(sessionScope.get(“key”));
entry = nav.getPrev(entry);
if (entry == null) {
// Nothing to Do
else {
return entry.getColumnValues()[2];

Any idea how to get this value ?

 UPDATE - David Leedy got hold of me and we did a short gotomeeting so he could see the issue  ( my post was not clear , writing this just before the game)  and he came up with a solution

Am not using repeat but this works . by using getlast() I was able to get the total Value.

THANKS David I really appreciate  your help.

<xp:repeat id=”repeat1″ rows=”30″ var=”rowData”>
<xp:this.value><![CDATA[#{javascript:var myView:NotesView = database.getView(“byUnique”);
var nav:NotesViewNavigator = myView.createViewNav();
var entry:NotesViewEntry = nav.getLast();
return entry.getColumnValues()}]]></xp:this.value>
<xp:text escape=”true” id=”computedField1″


I change this to be

var myView:NotesView = database.getView(“MySalesTotal”);
var nav:NotesViewNavigator = myView.createViewNav();
var entry:NotesViewEntry = nav.getLast();
return entry.getColumnValues()[12];


congrats to Germany :) Great game

Domino admin 2 day class sold out in 48 hours

Its has been long over due that we had a domino administrator class here in Iceland. I have been hearing for some time now within the community that people are looking for more education in the IBM Domino world.  After few talks with IBM and internally here at Nyherji, We decided to get some talent to Iceland to teach the new stuff that 8.5 and 9.0 brings to the table.  So the goal was to get 8 – 9 administrators. I send out a email to the Community telling everyone about the upcoming event , asking them to register and to our surprise it sold out in 48 hours , matter of fact it oversold.  We have 13 seats in the class room  and we got 15 when we closed the registration.

So who is going to be teaching ?   well  Tim from Intec (UK)  came to Iceland last fall to learn about Nyherji  and how we could do business together so i connected Tim and ask if he had some Administrator that could take on the class and he connected me with Keith Belgrave.  I know that this will be successful and it already planed to have this every year now. And bringing new people to the world of Domino.

There are planes to get Paul Withers over here for some Xpages class 1Q 2014  if we get enough people and if he is available that is.

Hope to see you in Orlando 2014
