This week my part of the business actually made concrete progress to simplified our business.
For a few years, like over 10, we have been using instant messaging to communicate between all the teams. We have a Jabber network, a home grown chat system called Talker plus IRC and more recently IT provided an instance of the Sun Instant messaging server for all of Sun.
Last Monday we began to move over to the IT service with the jabber network being decommissioned this Monday and the Talker rooms next Monday. No more will it be like having four phone systems none of which would really talk to the other. It is true that the SunIM service and the jabber service could have been federated but that would not have given use the ease of use and ease of finding contacts we needed to support our customers.
I would however like to thank all those who implemented and have been looking after those networks, mostly in their “spare” time. Talker and jabber were invaluable.
So Peter and Paul my thanks to you and everyone who helped you out.
