I read this entry at Ed Brill's blog and want to mention about the current trends in Japan.

Staying within policy

As far as I know, we have rare chances to hear about the Japanese customers who is using "Policies". And I personally thinks we should try to promote this function much much more. Generally, it is said that Notes client has disadvantages for its central administration of the client comparing with Web browsers. Using policies is a very good solution for this.

I am always afraid of Japan being a lot behind to the U.S, especially for adopting new features. Ed's entry made me relifed a little bit. However we have to promote this function to make the Notes Client much more convienient. (I love web application but that is another issue)

Well ..the domino policies used to be a little bugged, DynConfig only seems to pick up changes when it feels like doing so. Which means that unfortunately, a lot of large corporations that started working with them originally when the were available for the first time got frustrated and looked at alternative solutions from 3rd party vendors such as team genie.
However...recent builds (6.5.6/7.02) seem to be a lot more stable and I see more corporations start using them to implement client settings and features such as smart upgrade/configuring directory/catalog search server and proxy settings. We've been doing it for quite some time now and it keeps getting better and better.



Thank you for the comment. It's a good news that recent builds seem to be stable. I think we should make the most of this function to show the best advantage for Notes.
Thanks again.
