Opus Neo are one of the foremost developers of software for the Lotus Quickr platform, having released a number of solutions over the years, including the essential Neo.Tracking tool which enables granular logging and auditing of Quickr/Domino environments, allowing administrators to follow activities and life cycle of the Users and Places throughout their Quickr environments.
Opus Neo have just announced a new version of their Neo.Dashboard social portal solution for Quickr:
Opus Neo ready to reveal the new Neo.Dashboard for Quickr and DominoI've had first-hand experience of using Neo.Dashboard and can recommend it for situations where a collaborative portal is required that gives all the benefits of application integration, single-sign-on, user personalisation, presence awareness etc., but without the complexity of managing a J2EE Portal environment. Based on Lotus Quickr for Domino, it takes less than 30minutes to install, pulls in features from Quickr, Sametime, Connections and Domino out-of-the-box, and then allows extensions to include content from public-facing social sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
It’s a great feeling to come to this point where you finally can share all the exciting new stuff we at Opus Neo have been working on whilst having one of the busiest year in regards to project work.
But that is not all :-)
Imagine opening your Dashboard on the mobile and read information from Quickr, RSS feeds, web apps, ECM or even information from Connections – “Wow” we say – what do you say?
So what does this mean for Current and new Quickr Users?
With Neo.Dashboard you are combining all your Places into one consolidated homepage for your Quickr Places so that you can remain updated regarding your Quickr places and stay connected to your professional and social networks.

Background for Neo.Dashboard
The open architecture (through widgets) makes it possible to leverage social media technologies e.g. Blogs RSS Feeds, Google Gadgets, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook as well as IBM Lotus Quickr, Sametime, Notes Mail, Calendar & ToDo, Applications and Lotus Connections all integrated into one page in Neo.Dashboard while maintaining security.
It really is a tour-de-force. In many ways, I see it as the killer app for Lotus Quickr, the solution that takes Quickr from being an useful element of the collaboration kit-bag to an essential centre-piece of an organisation's social strategy.
Even better, Neo.Dashboard can even now run on plain Domino servers that do not have Quickr installed, making it relevant to any Lotus customer.
Opus Neo will be at Lotusphere 2011, and are exhibiting in the Showcase at booth 516. If you're a organisation that wants to improve Social Collaboration (or to fully replace an out-dated Intranet environment), I'd recommend you take a look at this new release of Neo.Dashboard...
Disclosure: OpusNeo sponsor this blog. However, Collaboration Matters personally use and recommend Neo.Dashboard to our customers, and will continue to do so should this sponsorship end at any stage!
