Crain’s ChicagoBusiness promotes PSC’s iPhone app

June 25 2009

Crain's ChicagoBusiness sent out an email to it's newsletter list promoting the Crains's Chicago Golf iPhone application. What I love about this is Crain's is promoting their own website and services, but are also promoting PSC. You can see that in the picture, they highlighted that we build the application. The application also has text on the main page "Developed by PSC Group, LLC" with a page of information about us. Not only is PSC involved in developing applications for the hottest application platform today, but we have a great partnership with someone who wants to see us succeed. You can download the Crain's Chicago Golf iPhone app from the iTunes Application Store. Search for Crain's Chicago Golf or PSC Group.

PSC’s First iPhone Application Available for Download - Crain’s Chicago Golf Guide

June 10 2009

One of the things I love most about working at PSC is that I get to work with technologies other than my passion with Lotus products. One of the areas that PSC is starting to invest in is mobile applications. Just as we do with all of our technology services, we consider mobile applications to be a strategy - and we work with multiple platforms. We have Blackberry applications we have built for customers, but the iPhone gives us a more public way to talk about these. The first iPhone application that we have on the Application Store is for Crains Chicago Business' Golf Guide. The Crain's Chicago Business Golf Guide application is an extension of the Crain's Golf website. The app allows you to located a golf course in the Chicagoland area. Enter your current location, click Find a Course! It will give you back a listing of course in your area. Clicking on a course will give you information about it. You get the course's address, phone number, and info about Fees and Reservati

PSC Open - PSC’s Open Source Practice Launches Information Portal with iPhone development details

April 27 2009

Most people know that here at PSC, we do far more than just IBM Software consulting. We have a Microsoft practice and we also have an Open Source Practice. The PSC Open site aggregates the Open Source team's blogs, twitter, and Del.icio.us information. In 2009, I firmly believe that Success Stories that demonstrate true value and Return on Investment (ROI) are the key to generating new business - far more than any time prior. The site also highlights a few of our success stories around Open Source solutions in the enterprise. The PSC Open Source Practice has expertise in many areas. Here is a slide covering many of them: One of the things this team is doing that really excites me is iPhone development of custom applications. We will be launching our first iPhone app for a trusted partner of ours very shortly. Helping organizations build iPhone apps is something we see as a huge potential market in 2009. If you are interesting in discussing how the PSC Open Source Pract

The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G; Part 3 - A Call to Action

June 12 2008

This is the third and final part in a three piece thought process that came after the WWDC SteveNote that took place on Monday. To can read my initial thoughts, The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G, The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G: Part 1 - A hard look at the community, and The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G; Part 2 - Who is the real customer? So in a quick recap, I took issue with the community in part one. I took issue with IBM in part 2. To wrap this all up, I want to take the issues talked about and create a community call to action so we can begin to address the issues. That comes in two pieces: 1. Let IBM and Apple know that we want Domino support on the iPhone So Ed Brill and Brent Peters (VP of Development, Lotus) have asked us to contact Apple and ask for Domino support on the iPhone. Great. Here is a collection of the contact points: Apple Feedback on Apple.com: http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.h

The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G; Part 2 - Who is the real customer?

June 11 2008

This is part two in a three part thought process that came after the WWDC SteveNote that took place on Monday. To can read my initial thoughts, The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G, and The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G: Part 1 - A hard look at the community. Once we look harshly at the community, it is only fair to turn the same eye on IBM's view of who their Notes customer is. With all of my time working with IBM around the Lotus Notes and Domino product, we have heard so many things about who their customer is. I don't mean user vs developer vs admin vs executive. I mean who is their current customer base and what customers are being targeted for future license sales. IBM says there are a total of 120 million Notes customers over the life of the product. They will also say there are 46,000 active companies on maintenance. Those numbers have been used in so many places, that I do not doubt them. The issue I have is who the listen to. So

The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G: Part 1 - A hard look at the community

June 10 2008

Out of all of the discussion yesterday around the Microsoft Exchange support coming for the iPhone and OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) is that Apple is not hearing from IBM customers. For the sake of this post, let's pretend we all agree that is 100% accurate. So if that is the case, how do we make Apple hear us? So the next question we have to ask ourselves is how much communication does Apple need to hear? Let's look at that issue closer. First, there are 266 blogs on PlanetLotus. Since that includes some IBM blog, we get closer to 230 of non-IBM employee blogs. Not a bad number, but who do those blogs represent? As I can thru the list of blogs, at least two-thirds of those are Lotus Business Partners. Those blogs are the important foundation of our on-line community, but do they represent the important voices IBM needs? We all know that PAYING customers are the voice that get things done in the real-world. How many customers are blogging and represented on PlanetLotus? This is not an acc

The Lotus Community Echo Chamber and the Apple iPhone 3G

June 10 2008

So yesterday was an interesting day for all of us, was it not? I will not repeat the details of what happened, but I read two thoughts on blogs I want to point out and discuss throughout today: 1. A comment on Ed Brill 's blog by Ed himself I've seen five blog entries on the petition but only 21 signatures so far. Hope this isn't an echo chamber... 2. A comment on John Roling 's blog he made in his last blog post This is the last post I'll make about Lotus Notes / iPhone. After reading both of those, I think we need a harsh reality check and some massive self reflection on our community. And yes, I include myself in that. I have a crazy day, so this will come out in a couple of blog posts across the day. But here are the headlines for the posts to come: 1. A hard look at the community 2. Who is the real customer? 3. A Call to Action - Lotus Notes & Domino and the Apple iPhone Look for the first topic before lunch
