May 5 2016

I am super excited to be speaking at IBM Amplify 2016 in Tampa on May 17th, 2016 at 10:15 AM EDT. With IBM Digital Experience part of the IBM Commerce brand now, there is a whole group of folks with fresh eyes looking at what DX can do. My session: DDX-1420: Bringing Your Web Applications to the IBM Digital Experience IBM WebSphere portal has been seen as the realm of the back-end developer with specialized Java skills. This has been a barrier to entry to the IBM Domino community. IBM has transformed the product to the IBM Digital Experience platform – and it’s not just a name change! With the inclusion of the Script Portlet and IBM Portal on Cloud option, it’s time to look again. This session explains how to integrate your XPages applications, IBM Bluemix and even Microsoft SharePoint. It also demonstrates content re-purpose without migration. If you are looking for a single point of integration for all your applications, this session is for you!

IBM Digital Experience 2015 - Application Modernization in the Digital Experience World

June 3 2015

Toby Samples and myself just gave a great session at IBM Digital Experience 2015 called "Application Modernization in the Digital Experience World" Application Modernization is the hottest buzzword in the IT world today. For many, it means the migration and transformation of an old application to a modern platform and emerging technologies. With Digital Experience solutions, means much more.

This session will look at these five areas and apply them to WebSphere Portal and the IBM Digital Experience solutions. Examples will highlight how and why focusing each of these areas can have a positive impact and upside inside your organization and recommendations on how to apply Application Modernization. Toby is the real rock start that got both

IBM Digital Experience 2014 Conference - General Session Thoughts

July 23 2014

I am at the IBM Digital Experience conference for the first time. Of course, that leads me to doing the compare and contrast with the other major IBM event I have attended, IBM Connect/Lotusphere. About 700 people here, and 85% of the sessions are technical. And from what I have seen, there is a great community of partners and customers here. I have spent most of my time in the business / customer story sessions. All of them have been pretty good. One item I wanted to really highlight was the Opening General Session. The contrast is so huge. First, there is no teleprompter. No script being read. I am sure there was an overall script, and lots of practice. But I never once felt like I was being spoon fed.
