IBM Mobile Strategies
Mark Polly    

IBM recently published a new presentation on their mobile strategy for social businesses.  This presentation is a comprehensive look at the available IBM mobile technologies across their broad spectrum of systems, including WebSphere Portal, Lotus Notes, Domino, IBM Connections, Sametime, Sterling Commerce, Cognos and Coremetrics.

IBM has a three prong strategy when it comes to mobile:

  • Extend & Transform – extend existing systems to mobile devices to create new business opportunities
  • Build & Connect – build mobile application and connect them to backend systems
  • Manage & Secure – manage mobile devices and provide secure access to my business

While many vendors are specializing in one of these areas, IBM offers strong solutions in all three areas.  As mentioned, many of their core solutions have already been extended to mobile devices. They have native apps for Connections, Sametime, Symphony, Notes Traveler, and Cognos nicely on many devices.  You can extend and enhance WebSphere Portal, Sterling, Cognos and Coremetrics as well.

On the manage & secure front, their recent acquisition of BigFix brings the IBM Endpoint Manager for Mobile Devices product, which became available in March.  They also have IBM Lotus Mobile Connect which adds more security to devices running Sametime, Connections and Lotus Notes Traveler.

IBM is also introducing a new Mobile Application Center which allows companies to implement a private app store for their devices.  The Mobile Application Center will support apps from different sources and deliver to both iOS and Android devices.

Finally, they have the build side covered as well.  IBM Worklight now provides native apps for a variety of mobile platforms and makes creation of those apps easier.   They also have XPages mobile for Domino, WebSphere Portal Mobile Accelerator, Web Experience Factory, and WebSphere Portal Mobile Experience.

You can view the presentation on SlideShare.

How to Implement Lighter Weight Portals, Part 2: Portlets
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 12:11p   Mark Polly
In part 1 of this series, How to Implement Lighter Weight Portals, I talked wrote about the infrastructure and installation aspects of Portals. To make the tasks of managing and installing portals, I recommended cloud solutions and for IBM, their PureApplication system both in the cloud and on-premise. In Part 2, I turn my attention to applications and how to make task of developing portal applications more lightweight. The goal of a portal is to combine applications and content at the glass fo [read] Keywords: admin ibm application applications interface java javascript portlet websphere websphere portal xml

Using Mapping to Show Up-to-Date Content
Thu, Sep 4th 2014 11:12a   Michael Porter
Sometimes I’m amazed with what some of our developers do.  I’ve seen so many examples of code just thrown together. I’ve seen that code produce infinite loops, slow down load time by a factor of 10, and take down servers.  So when I see an example of someone thinking through how to efficiently create code, I’m amazed.  Anyway, Parshva Vora, a Sitecore developer here at Perficient, just blogged on how you can use mapping to create agile code and more efficiently get at [read] Keywords: database microsoft

How to Implement Lighter Weight Portals
Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 9:11a   Mark Polly
One of the complaints we often hear about horizontal portal systems is they are complicated and feel “heavy”. What makes a system feel heavy and how can we lighten the load? In a typical portal application we have to integrate multiple applications, content and document management systems, security, search, personalization, page management, etc, etc. is it any wonder why a portal would feel heavy when you try to bolt together all these systems? Some vendors have taken the approach th [read] Keywords: ibm application applications database db2 development portlet security server websphere websphere portal

Why Patient Portals Remain Healthcare’s Enigma
Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 9:11a   Michael Porter
CIO.com has an interesting article about why patient portals just aren’t popular.  I think the author, Brian Eastwood, gets some things right but also misses some key reasons or challenges.  Here’s what he got right. Adoption just isn’t very high. No one is using the patient portals that are out there. Doctors don’t use portals………….and they don’t have patients who use portals.  In other words, if a medical provider still thinks the best w [read] Keywords: applications office security server

Forrester Digital Experience Wave
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 3:12p   Mark Polly
Last week Forrester published their first Wave on Digital Experience Platforms.   I was at the IBM Digital Experience Conference and it sounded like IBM was expecting good news from Forrester in this wave.   In fact, Stephen Powers from Forrester was the Keynote speaker at the conference and one of the principal authors of the Wave.   Much to every one’s surprise, the Wave came out with nobody listed as a Leader.  Adobe, hybris (SAP), IBM and Sitecore came out as the Strong Performers [read] Keywords: ibm development sap

WebSphere Portal and UI Myths and Facts
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 12:12p   Michael Porter
I don’t know how I missed it but Harish Bhavinachikar has a nice post on what you can do with modern UI tools in WebSphere Portal.  It’s on our Spark Blog but addresses something that keeps coming up again and again.  Frankly, the front-end tools have changed considerably in the last couple years.  Modern UI tools / frameworks like AngularJS, Bootstrap, JQuery, and a host of others make it easier to manage the UI and to further enforce separation of the front-end from the back-end [read] Keywords: ibm css javascript mobile portlet websphere websphere portal

Google Search With Sales Force
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 9:12a   Michael Porter
Brendan Callum, a director and whiz extraordinaire in our Salesforce practice, has a video out about what they did with Google Search and Salesforce. The video doesn’t go into a lot of detail but I find it extremely interesting that an appliance (older trend) searches the cloud (ongoing trend) in a secure fashion.  Of course, why do you need detail when someone developed a connector for it and all you have to do it buy, install, and go.

Migrating Web Content Using Kapow (Part 3)
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 9:12a   Michael Porter
I’ve blogged about this before with Candace’s Part 1 and Part 2. She just published Part 3 in the series.  Here she focuses on what to do once you’ve extracted and transformed the content.  In other words, getting that web content into the target system. In this case it’s Sitecore, a popular .NET based WCM.  I think it’s great Candace took the time to walk through a step by step approach to this.  Go to her post for the full set of steps and details.

Hilton Changes The Game, Mobile Enables It

Hilton announced on their web site that they plan to change the game when it comes to the guest experience at their hotels.  While the press release doesn’t state the investment, the Wall Street Journal quotes it at $550 million.  But what’s really cool is that the smart phone will become: Your room key: bypass the line and head straight to your room The way to choose your room: choose your room from a map of the hotel Special requests: get upgrade, ask for amenities, etc. At fir [read] Keywords: application integration mobile

Enterprise Collaboration and Digital Transformation
Tue, Jul 29th 2014 9:12a   Michael Porter
@lizasisler pointed me to an interesting article on CIO.com about the need for digital transformation and how you get there. The answer is of course that you need to break down silos and enterprise collaboration tools will help……. along with cultural change and executive support.  See my deeper color commentary over at Perficient’s Microsoft Blog.
