Lotus Greenhouse : IBM Docs beta


IBM Docs is a new office productivity suite for working on documents, spreadsheets and presentations — together — in the cloud. With IBM Docs there is no desktop software. You only need a browser and an account, and you are able to easily create professional looking documents and share them with others. IBM Docs is simple yet powerful – letting you get started quickly, but delivering the advanced features you need.

Mashup, Smashup…huh?


Mashup, Smashup….sounds like some sort of xtreme car wreck event.  I envision cars flying in the air and smashing into each other. Parts flying, steel mangled, and the roar of the crowd cheering for their favorite car to just annihilate their challengers. Personally I was let down to find out that Mashups didn’t have anything to do with cars, but everything to do with providing both business users and IT with the key capabilities needed to quickly & easily create, share, customize, and secure Enterprise Mashups.

Doesn’t sound as exciting as cars crashing, but if you love developing applications that solve real business life scenario, well…Mashups are the next best thing (grin). So have I peaked your interest just a little bit? Hopefully? Maybe? Well, I’ve included some nice “reads” to help get you up to speed. So if you’re serious about learning about Mashups, or just bored out of your mind and have nothing else to do. Try these for size.
