New update of Atom/RSS/Twitter News Reader for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino

leave a comment »

Last week > PAVONE published a new update of his Atom/RSS/Twitter reader for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino. The update contains no new feature, but some detail improvements. Especially if you are working with the Newspaper functionality and the News preview. The > PAVONE NewsReader application can be used as a Lotus Notes application or as a Sidebar plugin. The main advantage against other Atom/RSS/Twitter reader are, that you can put it on your IBM Lotus Domino server and all people with access can read the news. It is not necessary that each user collects the news from the sources. If you like to try it, it is free of charge for personal usage.

New release of NewsReader: All-in-one: Atom/RSS and Twitter

leave a comment »

Since last week the new release 9.6 of the > PAVONE NewsReader is available. The main difference to the release 9.5 is the > Twitter support. This means, that you can subscribe besides to your Atom or RSS feeds to your Twitter feeds.

The NewsReader is not a fully feature Twitter client for Lotus Notes as the > Twitter client by Thomas Adrian or the > TwitNotes plugin by Mikkel Heisterberg. With the NewsReader you can only subscribe to Twitter users. Since the preferred area is the usage in companies, the administrators can decide which users should be followed. So he can creates a new feed document in the NewsReader and enter the uri of the Twitter user, which should be followed. After that he can refresh the feed and gets the tweets of the user. Since the NewsReader contains a sidebar plugin it is possible to get the tweets into the Lotus Notes sidebar.

You can download the PAVONE NewsReader on the > download page. It is free for personal use in a Lotus Notes client.

White Papers about Social Computing

leave a comment »

The last week I read two white papers about Social Computing. The first was from Socialtext, Five Best Practices for Enterprise Success. And the second was from NewsGator, Delivering ROI with Enterprise Social Computing. Both papers were interesting, since I’m interesting to find out what is the additional benefit for a company to use social software (components). Until now, I found no independently research about experience with such software. Mostly the papers speak about Fortune 100 companies. But the most companies are members of the SMB market.

The Socialtext white paper indicates that “employees spend up to 25 % of their day looking for information, which can be 25 % of your staff costs” (based on a IDC research). Further it mentioned, that “only 13 % of people can find someone with a particular area of expertise in their own company” (based on an IBM study). Social software should help to reduce the time to find the information or the people.

NewsGator say in the future, all computing will be social. They say, that by reducing the email volumne and support costs are one of the reasons to use social software. Further, the travelling cost can be reduced. Besides this most of the people found their current position by networking. But this could only a reason if they find the new job inside of the company.
