Today at Lotusphere IBM has announced Open Logic as the WINNER of the award for “Distinguished Business Partner of the Year” for the NE IOT (roughly Western Europe-ish to those not immersed in IBM terminology).
So I survived my first day at Lotusphere! A couple of things happened:
- I was told off by Dave Hay for not updating this blog in 2 months. He was right, of course.
- I had a REALLY interesting chat with the guys from Alphalogix about their portal and forms solution
- And I bumped into some fun folks from Ascendant and had really interesting conversation about WICA
All in all a really good day. The Alphalogix stuff is interesting because integrating Lotus Forms, WebSphere Portal and Process Server is hard work, and many customers don’t want to go there – so something lighter is pretty handy and welcome.
The Ascendant conversation was good because anything that helps bring consistency to WebSphere deployments is really, really welcome!
