Ed gives us the recap skinny for the announcement yesterday about IBM Workplace and Lotus Notes' support for the SAP platform. Few things in life, or information technology, are free, but you'll Note (sorry, couldn't pass that one up) that we are providing some free templates for easier integration between Notes and SAP. That's so that you can more easily integrate all those wonderful vacation, time reporting, contact management and other useful Notes applications with your enterprise SAP data.
Speaking of Lotus, if you're a Notes/Domino user and you haven't ever spent any time at Alan Lepofsky's blog, run to your nearest browser and feed your productivity head. Alan offers up more Note tips and tricks than a mere mortal like myself can consume. And while you're over in Lotus land, check out the IBM Workplace Managed Client (also free....for 180 days).
Wait a minute, where's my next paycheck comin' from if we're giving all this software away??!
Over the weekend, I'm off to Toronto to feed my own head while mixin' and mashing it up at Mesh (which, btw, is now sold out!) Hopefully I'll have some of my own buzz to report out on. The whole agenda looks Web Two Point Oh scrumptious, but I have to play favorites and say I can't wait to hear from Steve Rubel on the future of marketing, Tara Hunt on building community online, and Om Malik on the future (or lack thereof) of media.
More from the top of the CN Tower...that is, if the restless 2.0ers haven't torn it down by the time I arrive!
