Key Strategic Issues in Implementing IBM WebSphere Portal Across the Enterprise
Wednesday, November 5th: 10.30 - 12.00
Track: IBM WebSphere Portal
Janus has covered IBM WebSphere Portal as an analyst since the initial release of the Enterprise Portals Report back in March 2006. Since then he has visited numerous WebSphere Portal customers and completed many briefings with customers, partners and IBM. He has also attended LotusSphere and even been offered to do consulting for IBM (which he politely turned down). For this first time, he will share his view on WebSphere Portal in a talk focused only on the portal offering from Big Blue.
Beginning with a critical evaluation detailing WebSphere Portal’s strengths and weaknesses he will outline the key strategic issues which new and existing customers should be aware of.
