Bringing Your Web Apps to IBM Digital Experience

February 3 2016

Here are the session slides for the session I gave with Brad Balassaitis. For too long, 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 & IBM Portal on Cloud option, it’s time to look again. We will show you how to integrate your XPages applications, Bluemix and even Microsoft SharePoint. We will show content re-purpose without migration. If you are looking for a single point of integration for all your apps, this session is for you!

What the App? : A Modernization Strategy for Your Business Applications

February 3 2016

Here are the session slides for the session I gave with Mat Newman at IBM Connect 2016. It's 2016 – your application portfolio is being reviewed and scrutinized. Email and application platforms are being separated. Users' expectations of their work experiences are higher than ever. But you're invested in your Notes & Domino applications – what do you do? Looking through the lens of IBM ESS solutions, we will answer that question by providing a roadmap and experiences to help you choose the best path. We will deep dive into the five aspects of Application Modernization: User Experience, Social, Cloud, Mobile, & Modern Workflow. See demos of actual application transformations and the impact they have within an organization. Learn how new functionality in the products will make your journey easier.

PSC sessions at IBM Connect 2016

December 3 2015

Besides the two sessions I talked about yesterday, PSC Group will be well represented at IBM Connect 2016. First, we have Kathy Brown, speaking with bacon lover Julian Robichaux: 1387: Outside The Box: Integrating with Non-Domino Apps using XPages and Java Users don’t care where their data lives. They just want to get their work done quickly and efficiently. They would prefer to do their work without opening three different applications and five different browser tabs. That means your applications need to share data and work well with other applications. So what can you do? Use XPages and Java, of course! Kathy and Julian will give you integration tips and examples of connecting your XPages apps to both IBM and non-IBM technologies. Walk away with a head full of knowledge and a sample database full of working code. NOTE: this session is geared towards XPages and Java developers, beginners welcome! Second, we have Brad Balassaitis speaking with Paul Calhoun: 1207: The Grid, the Bra

January 23 2013

One of the sessions I am looking forward to the most is "Lessons Learned from the World's Largest XPage Project" give by PSC Group's Andrew Barickman and Mark Roden. This session, given on Tuesday at 8:15 AM in Swan 1-2 is going to highlight what we learned working on an XPages project that took over 18 months and 14 consultants. The session will cover: Working on the world's largest XPages implementation has its challenges. Modernizing an IBM Notes client application used in over 105 countries by over 100,000 users teaches you a lot! In this session, we'll share some of the challenges and our approach to overcoming them. We'll demonstrate a new XPinC performance feature in the upcoming Social Edition being added as a result of our work with IBM. We'll also demonstrate best practices in user interaction, share lessons learned on team development using a single .nsf file -- and much more. Come and find out more about how you can save time, money and avoid end-user frustration as we shar
