This year I attended IBM Connect in San Francisco. In my eyes it was a great event and I enjoyed it very much.
Some announcements are very important for the future and evolution of the IBM portfolio:
- IBM Connections Pink – Jason Gary and the IBM Development team showed the future of IBM Connections. The basis will be Docker and a lot of other Opensource products. I see forward to work with a complete new stack and be very curious on deployment, migration and scaling. It is a complete rewrite and will not longer need DB2 or WebSphere. A good summarize was written by Glenn Kline.
- panagenda ApplicationInsight – all IBM Domino customers with valid maintenance will get ApplicationInsights to analyze the code and usage of their Domino databases
- IBM Domino will be updated through feature packs, we will get Java 8 and other long awaited functionality
- IBM announced a new lifetime IBM Champion: Julian Robichaux, big congrats to him and well deserved
Just a few session slides are available through the official conference page (we provided them, but they are still not available), so we uploaded ours to slideshare:

All other session slides of my panagenda colleagues can be found in the panagenda slideshare account.
