I stand corrected on the ability to customize components in Quickr!

Posted by Vivek Agarwal on September 12, 2007

After my last entry, I went ahead and filed PMRs with IBM Partnerworld Technical Support about the limitations I had supposedly discovered. Today, I am writing about standing corrected on one of those limitations – the ability to add a component to the component catalog available to the team place manager. I was corrected by a co-worker (Derek) as well as by IBM support. Read the rest of this entry »

Discovered a rather basic Quickr limitation today! :(

Posted by Vivek Agarwal on September 7, 2007

As I had mentioned in one of my earlier entries, I have recently become interested in IBM Lotus Quickr 8.0 Services for WebSphere Portal. It looks like a great team collaboration software with a very appealing Web 2.0 UI, ease of use for end-users, team site managers, and administrators, connectors for several popular business applications enabling access to Quickr content without a user having to switch from their current application, and team site templates enabling users to create new team sites in a few simple steps. However, today I discovered a rather basic Quickr limitation with respect to the customization you can do while creating templates. Read the rest of this entry »

And I thought installing IBM products had gotten easier! Quickr belies this belief!

Posted by Vivek Agarwal on August 24, 2007

I remember a time when installing IBM WebSphere Portal was quite a challenge requiring the right alignment of all trhe stars for you to get a successful install – this was back in the v2.1, v4.1, v4.2 days. You had to have the LDAP and the database properly configured and specify a ton of settings during the WebSphere Portal install , and you could easily mess up one thing or the other to end up with a failed install. With newer versions of WebSphere Portal, IBM switched to an archived install that did not require configuring an external LDAP/database, and as a result you always ended up with a successful Portal install. Along comes Lotus Quickr v8.0 Services for WebSphere Portal, and here I am again in failed install land! 😦 Read the rest of this entry »
