Understanding the decision behind Connections Mail

By Andrew Pollack on 01/28/2014 at 09:18 AM EST

So IBM has announced and shown mail in Connection. Why? This one's easy. For the last few years the reseller channel has been hearing a near constant drumbeat of promises about one feature or another in Connections "that will really drive utilization". Translated, this is saying that although our big customers have used their license entitlements to deploy connections all over the place, actual desktop users are not going there unless they have to. Even with the nonsense of "gamification" to get people in there, when it comes to getting their daily work do they don't go to Connections they go to their EMAIL to communicate. If you can move people out of the email client for email and into Connections, you make that the sticky tool.

in Connections but isn't the current IBM Connections Mail 1.0 which is retty
useless to me. this is all Domino (basically a new iNotes from my
understanding). I am hoping to get some more info to blog.

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
