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

My colleges and fellow IBM Champions Kathy Brown & Shean McManus are giving this session at MWLUG 2016 in Austin on August 17-19th, 2016. Here is the abstract: When you're driving a car, you need a lot of data quickly. How fast are you going? Are there any problems you need to address? Where do you get that data at a glance? 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.

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

Quickbase Empower 2016 - Transitioning Data from Legacy Systems into QuickBase
Thu, Jun 30th 2016 10:00a   John D Head
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

Here are my slides from Cloud Saturday 2016 - The Cloud and You - the ’as a service’ disruption you can’t ignore on April 30th, 2016. 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

2015 is behind us, and today starts a blank year. For me, it really is about resetting to zero. My quota that is. In some ways, its scary. In other ways, it's exhilarating. Can I match last years success? surpass it? What new challenges will come this year? All great questions. One thing I have learned doing sales for five years is that half of the business I will close this year I don't even know about. That is an exciting prospect. Here is to 2016 and setting a new year best record, again.
