    On Thursday, 22 September, IBM Social Business Community Call where Luis Guirigay, Barry Rosen, and Scott Vrusho provided a quality session on IMSMO 2.0, IBM re-announced to a larger international audience new support for Outlook 2010 and 2016. This is exciting news to hear. At ICON US in May, Luis Guirigay stated that the new expanded client support would happen this year and at MWLUG 2016, IBM officially made the announcement--keeping their promise. In my working with the product over the past 12 months, I am happy to have version two released and on-time (also as promised), while seeing consistent enhancements through fix packs.

    To ensure currency, below are some links to provide additional information on IMSMO client support, how to avoid a crash on Linux x64 with ND9.0.1 FP7, and of course, the current schema image.

    IMSMO Slides to Share

    Two slides to share in this post covering architecture and part numbers. I like the first slide slide as it quite clearly shows you what both vendors bring to the table to get the solution working, while highlighting the use of IBM's new SyncML conduit to move data sans Microsoft's Active Sync technology.

    IMSMO Part Numbers, both client and server side. If you want the software, knowing all the part numbers desired for your environment can make the acquisition process easier.
    Below are for version only, and requested from the presenter to get a slide with the part numbers. Upon receipt, I will update this post.
