Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? Well today is the first step in realizing that dream.
A few months ago I made a post about being one of the co-founders for a new company called Red Pill Development. This company was founded on the controversial belief that modernizing Notes applications one at a time by reproducing all of the existing functionality is a loosing strategy. In order to turn a profit modernizing applications, you have to do so en-masse and only include the features that are needed and being used. We came about this epiphany from attempting to reproduce Notes applications in their entirety and with all features functioning exactly as they had in the Lotus Notes client, and do this all automatically. To put this statement into perspective I had commented that Peter still had the "Yellow Books" around his office. He informed me that they were the specification for our previous project.
So, after 6 months, much debate, pain, worrying and a lot of late night coding, the first step in our journey is now realized. We are now ready to start talking about the success that Red Pill Development has had at an actual customer site, and not just in a lab environment. In a joint effort with The Salvation Army we were able to implement our vision of "Asymmetric Modernization" in their environment by mobilizing 38 Notes applications in a single day. The rest of the time was spent developing the platform, training their developers and documenting the process. To further prove the technology, we applied the same process to the Nifty Fifty applications provided in 1992 by Lotus. Doing this took about half an hour.
In that post I mentioned earlier, I stated….
No one can be told what Red Pill is. You have to be shown.
We are now ready to start showing what Red Pill is and what it can do for your organization. As of today, Red Pill Development is proud to announce that redpill Mobile is available for immediate deployment in your environment. Visit red-pill.mobi from your iOS or Android device to see the results of the mobilization of the Nifty Fifty. If you're interested in more information, take a look at our demo video and the case studies for the Nifty Fifty and The Salvation Army.
