After the exciting first two days, we continued at the same pace, the first sessions started at 8 o´clock. So after grabbing a few cafe cups and making some hard decisions on which Sessions to visit, I started going toward the presentation rooms. Just like in the previous post, I will list the Sessions I have visited and add some Information, which from my perspective is most important.
IBM Engagement Center Quickstart: Get your first Intranet pages up and running in minutes – by Martti Garden
In this Session, Martti unleashed the full power of ICEC and showed some tips and tricks, like resizing YouTube videos automatically, in order to “rock” any Connections Environment.
Notes 11 – by Ram Krishnamurthy
This got pretty interesting, by the way, as you can imagine, the room was completely full. Ram presented us the new Notes 11 Client. The Session consisted from three parts, first we got to see what HCL is striving to Achieve with the new release. We basically got a glimpse of how it should look at the end.
After that, we got to see the current state of the pre Beta release.
After the Design was presented, Ram explained us some technical differences and improvements which are going to be available on the new Notes 11 client.
IBM Connections: The Future is Bright – by Danielle Baptiste and Martti Garden
In this Session Danielle confirmed that HCL is going to continue to invest into Connections Platform, because of a strategic importance for HCL. Martti also showed us some new features which are going to come with the new CR Releases, like Integration with Slack! We also got to see what is coming with Connections 6.0 CR5, which is going to be released in the next two weeks. After the CR5, we should get at least two more CR Updates this year.
Domino on Docker Bootcamp – by Daniel Nashed and Thomas Hampel
Interested in running Domino (including Traveler) on Docker!? If that´s the case, then this was the session to be. Daniel and Thomas explained everything you need to know to “kick-start” your Domino deployment on Docker.
Domino and SSO – New Ways for secure collaboration – Round Table by Daniele Vistalli
In this Round Table Daniele presented his own Application/Solution for generating SSO Tokens, meant for environments or Use Cases where you can’t use SAML. The application is great, it is based on Domino and it shows just how versatile the platform is.
IBM Connections Customizer – Have it Your Way! – by Miki Banatwala
Miki showed us the true power and flexibility of IBM Connections Customizer. What I liked the most was the possibility to show different content based on different user groups.
Sadly could not visit all Sessions, every track had at least two or three sessions which were interesting to me, so it was always a tough call which session to choose. Like always, the organization of the Conference was brilliant, many thanks to Theo!
