IA104: Got Problems! Let's do a Health Check
Speaker: Luis Guirigay - PSC Group, LLC, Senior IT Specialist/Architect with Kim Greene - Kim Greene Consulting, Inc., President,
Thursday, August 25th, 2011 at 11 AM in Moorland 7

Have you inherited a Lotus Domino infrastructure you don't understand? Do you have problems happen that you don't know how to prevent? Wondering if your servers are healthy enough or have room for improvements? If so, this session is for you.

Performing a health check on a regular basis is a must to keep your servers robust and error free. The presenters frequently perform health checks for their customers, ensuring server environments are running as cleanly and efficiently as possible. In this session you will learn what things to look for when doing a health check. These two industry experts will also share what they have found on numerous implementations and show what it takes to remedy the scenarios presented.

BCS108: The Notes/Domino Application Development Competitive Advantage
Speaker: John Head - PSC Group, LLC, Director of Enterprise Collaboration, David Via - IBM Corporation, BUE, WW Messaging and Collaboration Sales
Thursday, August 25th, 2011 at 2:30 PM in Brookfield 1

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.

AD107: The Never Ending Integration Story: How to Integrate Your Lotus Notes, Domino, and LotusLive applications with Microsoft Office, .NET, and Lotus Symphony
Speaker: John Head - PSC Group, LLC, Director of Enterprise Collaboration
Friday, August 26th, 2011 at 9 AM in Moorland 4

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!

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
