This week I'm on the road in Boston and New York City, presenting the second and third iterations of the Microsoft "Optimizing Collaborations and Communications" roadshow that I wrote about last week. Yesterday's event was well attended, and the attendees asked some tough questions about Microsoft's C&C strategy. However, the session evaluation results indicate that they liked the answers they were hearing. MS' message-- that you can augment Notes/Domino installations by adding technologies that drive better business value-- seems to be resonating with these folks. Today, I go to Manhattan via the Acela (which I'll blog about later, or maybe during), then tomorrow it's St Paddy's Day in the Big Apple. I didn't bring anything green, so I need to do some shopping lest I face the wrath of the Irish.
