Ready to take your Domino Data to the Cloud? Learn how from PSC Group and LDC Via at IBM Connect 2017
Wed, Feb 15th 2017 7:00p   John D Head
With IBM Connect 2017 just days away, there is going to be lots of talk about the cloud, cognitive, and application modernization. But you don't need to wait for one of the best ways to make your Domino data cloud ready - and modernize your applications. LDC Via offers the best available destination for data, applications, and developers embracing the cloud, regardless if you have a roadmap for Domino inside your organization. As the on-site representative for LDC Via at IBM Connect 2017, PSC i

TechAltar - How to cure a fanboy
Mon, Jan 30th 2017 3:11p   John D Head
Volker posted this video and I think the exercise is brilliant. So here are my three favorite things for each company: Apple: 1. My iPhone is my single most used device, and it just works. I read email, work with my calendar, interact with social, talk with people via voice and text, and consume video and pictures more on my iPhone than any other method. And I can't remember the last time it didn't get the job done. 2. Apple created the modern app store model, which allows me to find an

NATO officially recognizes cyberspace as domain for war
Mon, Dec 5th 2016 6:42p   John D Head
I missed this announcement this summer, and from some quick searching, it seems most people missed it as well. On June 14th, 2016, The North Atlantic Treaty Organization added cyberspace to the definition of war, adding them to land, sea, and air. Why is that important? Let me quote from the article: Making cyberspace an official war zone means attacks carried out in that manner can trigger an Article 5 response, which is a collective action by the 28-member organization against the perpetra

There is plenty of space between a Lovefest and The Sky is Falling
Wed, Aug 31st 2016 10:00a   John D Head
There is a place between "I am the Yes Man for Notes/Domino/XPages" and "Notes is Dead and I am doing something else" that many live in. I find it hard to believe that people attending MWLUG or any IBM user group didn't realize that PSC works with other technologies other than IBM. At over 100 consultants, we do many things. Mark and I both talk at events for other technologies and vendors. And we are not alone. I am not one to believe that the sky is ever falling. I was also one to nev

Why LDC Via? The non-technical reason for our strategic partnership
Tue, Aug 23rd 2016 12:00p   John D Head
Last week at MWLUG 2016, PSC was proud to announce our new strategic partnership with LDC and their Via offering. It is getting some coverage in the community, and when we get the press releases out, hopefully some press attention. I have been asked "Why?" quite a bit since that announcement. There are a bunch of technical reasons and I will let Mark talk about that. Keep an eye on his blog for the next few weeks for some specific technical discussion. But let's talk from a business

Your dashboard, of course. All the info you need at your finger tips, easily understood. Your applications have a lot of data and important information, but can your u

Here are the slides from my session “What the App?”… A Modernization Strategy for Your Business Applications that I gave at Social Connections 2016 earlier this month in Toronto. 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.

IBM Amplify 2016 - DDX-1420: Bringing Your Web Applications to the IBM Digital Experience

Here are the slides I presented at my session "DDX-1420: Bringing Your Web Applications to the IBM Digital Experience" at IBM Amplify 2016 in May. IBM 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 and IBM Portal on Cloud o

here are the slides from the session at Quickbase Empower 2016 for "Transitioning Data from Legacy Systems into QuickBase" that my coworker Ken Lamey and I delivered. Locked deep inside your company, legacy data is the running your business – and holding you back. It’s one of the reasons for the rise of Shadow IT and Citizen Developers. Users today don’t just need access; they need to use that data in ways most enterprise systems can’t provide. We will take a look at how

In any discussion about cloud, there are lots of buzzwords being thrown out by analysts and vendors. "Digital Transformation", "Democratization of IT", "Citizen Developer", and many more. Add in the 'as a Service" explosion and it is hard to make heads and tails over what will add value to your business. This session will cut through the

Here is the session that Mark Roden and I gave at IBM InterConnect 2016 CBA-4586: Application Modernization Meets the Cloud and Mobile... Where to Start? It's 2016. Your application portfolio is being reviewed and scrutinized. Mobile and cloud are more than checkboxes on a list. User expectations are higher than ever.
