During ICONUK last week (15-16 September 2016) I did a session on “IBM Connections Adoption Worst Practices“. Slides for this session are available on my slideshare and here:
Regardless if you’ve implemented IBM Connections, are considering it or in the middle of the planning stages – there are wrong (and right) turns to take at every step. Join Femke to learn about misconceptions and tribulations others have faced while striving to become a socially enabled company. Hear about real World examples and often funny anecdotes from the trenches of adoption to show you how NOT to do it and giving you tips on how to do it better along the way.
Walk away with a grasp on what to focus on to make a success out of your IBM Connections environment.
After not having traveled much over the last few months it is promising to shape up to be quite a busy fall this year!
21st/22nd of September – London:
In little over a week I will be attending ICON UK, the UK user group for IBM software users where I will be co-hosting a session with ICON UK organizer Tim Clark on the art of requirements gathering as well as doing a session on my own about file & document management in IBM Connections. ICONUK is a great conference with a fantastic lineup of speakers and I’m really honored to be accepted to be among them. The conference is held at the IBM Client center in the heart of London which is a fabulous location right next to the London Eye. If you haven’t booked a ticket to go yet, do it now. This is one you don’t want to miss!
28th of October – Zürich:
Another user group which I will be attending and speaking at is SNoUG, the Swiss user group for users of IBM/Lotus Notes/Domino, Connections and WebSphere products which will be help in the IBM Client center in Zürich. The session I will be doing here will be focused on the question what to use when it comes to file management in IBM Connections and the differences between the different options like CCM and community files. Andrew Magerman is doing a great job making SNoUG into a a worldclass event and I’m definitely looking forward to going there!
5th/6th of November – Stuttgart:
And last but certainly not least I will be attending Social Connections in Stuttgart. I’m hoping to get a session slot there too but more importantly I will be helping out around the conference. After not having had the time to be involved with the Social Connections team for the last three episodes of this great conference I’m very happy to report that I’m back on the team. It is humbling to see how much this team has done and achieved in the last two years and the conference in Stuttgart is definitely shaping up to be one of the biggest ones to date.
Apart from these three conference I will also be traveling for work so all in all it will be a busy and exciting couple of months for me and I hope to see many of you at one of these great conferences or during the other work related trips I will be taking this fall.
