John Speaks 2016 - IBM Connect

December 2 2015

IBM Connect is back for 2016 and I am honored to be doing two sessions at the conference.

First, you can see myself and the one and only Mat Newman talk about Application Modernization:

1363: What the App? : A Modernization Strategy for Your Business Applications

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.

my second session is with my awesome coworker Brad Balassaitis as we give an updated version of a session given at the IBM Digital Experience 2015 US conference on extending Websphere Portal to Bluemix and even Microsoft SharePoint:

1539: Bringing your web apps to IBM Digital Experience

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!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Orlando!
