I am excited to be part of the panel keynote at XChange 2017 entitled Keynote: Livin’ On The Edge: The Tech Solutions That Will Drive Tomorrow’s Revenue. The abstract:Solution providers are always looking for the next big thing when it comes to tech solutions they can offer their customers.

I presented The Data & Analytics Journey – Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 1:00 PM EDT at MWLUG 2017. Here is the session abstract: The typical perception of Big Data, Analytics, and Predicative/AI is that only the big companies can reap the benefits.

At Social Connections 11 in Chicago on June 2nd, 2017, Mark Roden and I delivered our second pass of the session The Data & Analytics Journey – Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before - and it is different than the version we gave at CampIT. Better slides, edited for a shorter time period, and honestly - it just flowed better a second time live. The session abstract: The typical perception of Big Data, Analytics, and Predicative/AI is that only the big companies

On April 13th, 2017, Mark Roden and I spoke at the CampIT conference on Business Intelligence / Analytics / Big Data Strategies in the Chicagoland area. The session abstract: The typical perception of Big Data, Analytics, and Predicative/AI is that only the big companies can reap the benefits. Many believe they need a data warehouse, expensive reporting software, and an army of data scientists to get any value out of effort and cost. This session will explore and debunk that myth and showcase h

I found my new favorite Office365 feature - Share as Attachment as PDF
Thu, Mar 30th 2017 7:00p   John D Head
This is one of the biggest time consumers for me in my daily routine is sending documents to external users (customers) and having to create a pdf of that file each time. The workflow today is: 1. Open the document in Word 2. File | Save As, select PDF as file type, Hit Save 3. Create a new email in Outlook 4. Attach the PDF, selecting it from the drop down It's kind of wasteful as I never use the PDF's again. They just sit there in the folder, taking up s

IBM Connect 2017 highlights the Negative and Emotional Impact of IBM’s Co-Location policy
Thu, Feb 23rd 2017 11:45p   John D Head
The effects of IBM's new co-location policy have hit close to home this week at IBM Connect 2017. I have had numerous IBMers basically say good-bye this week. They either have been given their notice and have no intention of moving, or they see the writing on the wall. Some are even leaving IBM immediately after the conference. It hit me this morning that over two-thirds of the conversations I am having with IBMers this week ends with 'I am interviewing' or 'I will not be moving and leaving

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
