Reviews - What do customers think about Upgrading to Lotus Notes and Domino 7?
Good book for Lotus Notes administrators Mar 31, 2008
This great book gives a comprehensive list of new features in Lotus Notes/Domino 7. More focused in administration but there are also some chapters for developers and end users. The end user new features can be found anywhere in the web, but they couldn't be abscent in this book. What I liked the most were the two very detailed chapters dedicated to Domino Domain Monitoring and Policy Management: two features that promise to be the big stars for Domino Administrators. The target readers should be administrators, TI managers and HR crew to plan the upgrade, learn what's new and plan some training for end users.
Not worth the money! Mar 30, 2007
This book is neither for beginners nor for advanced users. I am not sure who the target audience is. Unlike the title suggests, it does not tell you anything about upgrading to Lotus Notes/Domino 7 except for a brief overview of some of the features in the newest release. That was fine in my case, because I just wanted to learn about new ND7 features. Unfortunately, it tends to mention a feature then not go on to tell you how to implement it or how it's best used. Kinda useless! I can read the Help files and get more information than I found in this book - and that's FREE! At $59.99, you should be able to expect a LOT more for your money. Apparently there will never be an updated version of Rob Kirkland's "Domino System Administration," the Notes Admin's Bible, which is a shame. I recommend saving your money and downloading individual RedPapers & RedBooks to get you acquainted with ND7. Oh yeah - and USE THE HELP FILE!
Misleading title for this book Aug 9, 2006
I'm not sure why I assumed a book entitled "Upgrading to Lotus Notes and Domino 7" would offer any assistance in upgrading. Guess what? It doesn't. It glaces over the professed main topic in a mere 13 pages at 13,000 feet, which is of no help to anyone save a Domino expert - who would not need this book anyway. Save yourself the nearly $60 and browse the IBM website where you can get an overview of new features in Domino 7 for free. This is worthless.
Not an upgrade book Jun 12, 2006
I bought this book with the assumption that it would assist me in performing an upgrade to Domino 7. I was also looking for a book that would assist me with learning Domino 7 Administration. This book failed horribly at either of those tasks. I found it to be more of a differnces and new features book than any kind of an upgrade guide. The book is written with the assumption that you're an expert level Notes Administrator. The topics that it does cover are only covered at a summary level. It discusses what needs to be done or what could be done but not how to do it. There is only 13 pages on how to upgrade Domino 7 and it's practically useless. The entire book is only 307 pages and could be used as a reference guide once you've upgraded, however I'm sure that most if not all the information in this book can be found on the IBM website.
Upgrading sooner than later is a good thing... Apr 6, 2006
By now, you probably are aware of Lotus Notes and Domino 7 and have it on your upgrade radar. But where can you find a single source of information that shows all the new features for the user, the administrator, and the developer? One place to start would be Packt Publishing's Upgrading to Lotus Notes and Domino 7, by Tim Speed, Dick McCarrick, Tara Hall, Barry Heinz, Matthew Henry, and Wendi Pohs.
Often, one of the hardest things to do in an upgrade project is to convince management that the upgrade is needed. Vague marketing fluff won't (or shouldn't) sway those who want detailed explanations of the new features, including how they will benefit the organization. This book can help you get beyond the generalities in the three major areas of the Notes/Domino platform. From the client perspective, there is good coverage of the new mail features, Sametime integration, and the new Autosave function. In the course of 20 pages, you'll have enough information to start selling the benefits to your users. From the developer's perspective, the information is a little on the light side as there weren't a large number of changes or additions in the Designer. But there is good coverage on AutoSave, enhanced Java support, and the new Formula language and LotusScript commands. Where the book really shines is in its coverage of the new administration features. A large percentage of the book goes into moderate detail on new items like Domino Domain Monitoring as well as some of the new enhancements to policies. The book is not at the level of a reference manual, but there's enough detail to help you to understand what's going on. There's even a nice case study on how IBM upgraded the developerWorks site to the Notes/Domino 7 platform. There is some good information in there that you can use to structure your own upgrades.
So why recommend an "admin" book to Notes developers? Good question! It's because I think you need to be able to step back and "sell" the value of your technology. Just wanting to use shared columns or profile your agents isn't going to cause the CIO to budget your upgrade. Being able to speak to the value to the users as well as the value for the infrastructure is important. Rather than venturing into the Domino help files to find administration stuff that you may not understand, you can get everything you'll need to understand right here, at the right level to be able to discuss the issues coherently with management and the administration side of your team.
So, expand your view of Notes/Domino 7 outside of your "developer or administrator" role, and understand the overall value-proposition that upgrading to Notes/Domino 7 brings. Pick up a copy of this book and convince management that upgrading sooner rather than later is a good thing...
