I co-authored an IBM Whitepaper - Collaborative and business applications for the connected company

January 5 2015

I co-authored an IBM Whitepaper titled "Collaborative and business applications for the connected company" and it is available for download today.

Here is the description:

This paper outlines the continued application development value of refreshed platforms like IBM Domino and IBM XPages technology, while also looking at how they take advantage of newer innovations, including: IBM Worklight Platform, IBM Connections and its open APIs, cloud innovations and more.


It's a good overview on the application development options in the IBM collaboration software stack. I wrote it with a few great IBM Authors that are not named (but you know them). It's the first of two whitepapers. This one is more general. The second one, coming later this month, will cover application modernization at a deeper level. It will also include a detailed customer vision from one of my good friends and colleges - John Roling. More on that in a few weeks.

I am also proud that IBM agreed to dedicate this whitepaper to Tim Tripcony. I thought it was important that we honor Tim's memory properly. The dedication is as follows:

"This whitepaper is dedicated to Tim Tripcony, without whom the XPages community would not be what it is today."

    John - Thanks a lot for your contributions to this paper. Application modernization is a hot topic and having your real world perspective was invaluable. The Domino application development platform provides developers with a compelling set of capabilities on which one can build new web apps or modernize existing apps. This paper helps get that word out and we look forward to sharing our roadmap at ConnectED 2015.

    Very nice thought!
