Event Outline

Messaging and Collaboration (Application Development and Infrastructure streams)
Collaboration software started with messaging. While e-mail remains an important tool, new Lotus software now offers so much more. Team collaboration software helps you share content, collaborate and work faster on-line with your teams - inside or outside your organisation's firewall. Learn about Lotus Notes 8, Expeditor, Web Services and Composite Applications.

Portal (Application Development and Infrastructure streams)
Portals provide key infrastructure for a window to the present and future of your business. Do you have data, people or business applications in different places and on different platforms? Portals can bring these all together to help create meaningful information. Do you have users who need unique views into this information? Portals deliver personalised information to the right people at the right time. But bringing this all together can be a challenge…content management, personalisation, integration and security require specialised solutions. Join us and master Lotus Web Content Management, Lotus Forms, WebSphere Portal and WebSphere Portlet Factory.

Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC), Collaborative Document Services and Social Software (Application Development and Infrastructure streams)
At the forefront of taking team collaboration to the next level is IBM. Collaboration across time zones, organisations and networks has never been easier or faster with solutions powered by IBM Lotus software. Our team collaboration software is designed to transform the way work groups work together by relying on extensible solutions that work as stand-alone platforms or integrate with Lotus Notes/Domino software. Learn about Lotus Sametime and Lotus Quickr to spearhead your organisation to the next level!

Revolutionising enterprise collaboration software is nothing new to IBM, and IBM has done it again with Lotus Connections! Social software gives organisations the essential framework to unlock the power of dynamic networks of co-workers, partners and customers. Learn how to maximise the use of profiles, communities, blogs, dogear and activities by joining us.
