PSC at Lotusphere 2011 : Health Check Best Practices, Integration in 2011, and David Via and I talk XPages for the Executives

December 3 2010

Yesterday was the day where session acceptances were sent out for Lotusphere 2011 and PSC has three presentations at the conference.

Luis talked about his on Domino Health Check Best Practices. Luis, along with Alex, do the hands on work on our health checks and has a wealth of info to share. We do quite a few health checks so this is a session we are very excited to see get accepted.

Alex and I return to Sunday Jumpstarts with "The Never Ending Integration Story: How to Integrate Your Lotus Notes, Domino, and LotusLive applications with Microsoft Office, .NET, and Lotus Symphony" The abstract:

The Integration Story started in 1994, with the first ways to combine Lotus Notes and Lotus Ami Pro to create custom applications. In 2011, the Integration story is still going strong. This session will start with the basics and ramp up in skill and capabilities. We will show how to integrate Lotus Notes, Lotus Domino, XPages, and LotusLive applications with the tools on your user’s machines: Microsoft Office, Microsoft .NET custom applications, OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, Lotus Symphony, and more. We will look how the ODF and OOXML standards are changing the integration story and how they will impact you. You will walk out of the session with lots of sample code and extending your own integration story!
When I look at the initial demo list I want to do, I see a total of 40 demos! Alex will probably make me cut that down a bit, but with Office 2010, Symphony 3, and LibreOffice all bringing stuff, this should be a very relevant and current session. And yes, you read that right - we are going to do a demo with LotusLive.

My other session is one that I am super excited about. David Via, Worldwide Sales Leader for Notes & Domino, and I are giving the session "The Notes/Domino Application Development Competitive Advantage." The abstract:
Some organizations are neglecting or under-utilizing one of the greatest IT assets in their portfolio today - the Notes/Domino application platform. Some are even considering re-coding Domino applications in other languages and development tools. In this session we present the business case and technical merits of Notes and Domino in direct comparison to other tools such as Microsoft SharePoint. Based on data collected from real-world engagements we will demonstrate the positive return on investment of the Notes platform. We will also discuss PSC’s “Application Modernization” strategy and how it helps move customers from merely maintaining Notes applications to increasing their value with XPages and advanced collaboration functionality.
This is not a session about code, but why a customer should select Notes / Domino for their application development platform. Why XPages is a great choice for custom applications. And how PSC sells this vision to our customers. Yes, I am going to share the approach and some actual head to head prototypes we have built for our customers trying to decide if XPages is the right choice for them. Seeing as how my day to day life is mostly about this process, I am super happy this session was selected.

See everyone at Lotusphere 2011!
