Technical conference session

Yesterday I gave a talk at the WebSphere Portal Technical Conference about the portal that we’ve built for the University of London. The talk was really well attended with about 30 people present – including some people from the lab, which was pretty flattering. The room was full and there were some great questions.

We talked about the reasons that University of London decided to build a portal, what they’re going to deliver there and some of the challenges that we faced along the way. It’s been a really interesting project and I’ve got to grips with some of the Tivoli products that go with portal. The biggest technical lessons have been that an Identity Management solution is absolutely crucial, and that Tivoli Access Manager is about the most useful addition to portal out there…

Here are the slides:
