After 18 years having worked with M3, I left the world of M3 in June 2017, and I made a career change for the world of cyber security; visit my work on M3 security. I am excited.
It has been a great adventure working with M3 since 1999, through four acquisitions between Intentia, Symphony, Lawson, Infor, and Ciber, learning about 30 M3 products, living in three countries, France, Sweden, and the US, traveling 20 countries in five continents for about 100 customers, seeing M3 evolve through big changes, from RPG to Java, from Movex to M3, from AS/400 to Windows to Linux, from on-premise to the multi-tenant cloud, from guarded documentation to open documentation. I wish some day I will see M3 provide open source code.
I had been writing ideas in various systems since the beginning of my M3 career: Intentia 2000, Intentia’s The Wire, the Movex E-Business Forum, ibrix.info, Lawson’s SharePoint Communities of Interest, Lawson’s Yammer, and eventually I moved my content to my own blog here so it survives through acquisitions and changes. Since its inception in 2011, this blog has amassed 300 subscribers, and 300,000 views, thanks to you, reader.
I will keep this blog alive for a few years until further notice. I invite all of you to keep reading and commenting to keep it alive. Also, I invite you to come write new posts; contact me, and I will make you author. Also, visit the other M3 blogs. As a backup, I submitted this blog to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine for the domain m3ideas.org and the previous domain thibaudatwork.wordpress.com.
Thank you for your continued support through all these years.
