With the help of this book I was able to get our new SameTime 8.5.2 environment up and running perfectly and now our users are able to use the new system with their iPhones/iPads and other devices while on the road.
A great read for anybody new to WebSphere who has to deploy SameTime 8.5.2
One thing that struck me in a positive way is how logically the chapters are arranged. Starting with an overview of Sametime, including what's new in 8.5.2, the book covers topics that include infrastructure, different features including telephony integration, and Sametime security, to name just a few. One has the feeling that this is how IBM should have written the documentation for Sametime. I know I have at one time or another had that feeling that IBM's documentation was missing a piece of information that could have made my life a lot easier. This book would have done just that - made installing Sametime much easier.
The book is full of charts and tables. For example, it has a list of Sametime server system requirements. Instead of using the IBM term "32-bitness" the book actually spells out in plain English language which versions of Sametime and their components run on which version of each supported operating system. I would dare say the price of the book is worth this type of information alone. One neat feature of this book is the really helpful "checklists". Not only do these checklists force you to have the required information before your first click of a Sametime install, the checklists make system documentation much easier. All user names, hostnames, passwords, etc all ready to be printed out and binded.
The book covers basic information and more advanced topics. The writing is such that a beginner will not have a hard time understanding what is being described, and advanced administrators will not be bored either. The writing style is concise and informative. There are numerous instances where learn by experience tips are given. These tips should be noted as they will come in handy when you are performing your Sametime install.
Here are a few of items that really impressed me with this book.
Several example scenarios for each topic are outlined in the Chapter introduction
Troubleshooting and additional resources sections
Excellent WAS information for Domino Administrators who are just getting started with WAS
Overall I feel this book covers just about every aspect of Sametime you need or want to know. The book is easy to read and covers advanced information and concepts with ease.
If I had to describe this book I would say it's similar to some recent Lotusphere presentations:
IBM Lotus Sametime 8.5: From "Zero to Hero" in Just Two Hours on Steroids
Note: PACKT provided me with a free copy of the book for my services.
IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Administration Guide was written by Gabriella Davis, Marie L. Scott and Thomas "Duffbert" Duff.
I have attended sessions by Gabriella Davis and Thomas Duff at several conferences and while reading the book, I sometimes felt like sitting in the audience and hear Gabriella and Tom talking. I never had the chance to meet Marie L. Scott but I'm sure that she is as enthusiastic as the other authors.
All of them have a deep knowledge and so is the content of the book.
Every detail of the installation and administration is covered and one should be able to setup a Sametime environment following the description in the book step by step. If I only had this book a year ago, it would have saved me a lot of time then.
My first installation took me more than a week. One week with reading documentation, hanging around in forums and chatting with IBMer Frank Altenburg. And a lot of try and error.
Be asured that, following the book, you can do the installation in less time.
Also, if you are new to Websphere, this book is for you. IBM Sametime is not as easy to setup as double-click a setup.exe and wait. There are many places to look into and numerous properties that can be set or eaven been set wrong.
You can do it the hard way and find out on your own, or invest some money buying this book. There will be an immediate ROI.
The book may also help planning the resources by finding out, what exactly is needed, both hardware and soft skills.
I recommend "IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Administration Guide" to everyone who is new to Sametime, wants to upgrade from an older version and even to those, who already have a Sametime 8.5.x environment running. You will for sure find something in the book that is new to you.
