Wednesday, March 23 | 13:30 - 14:30 | D. Saturn

You are lucky, your Connections platform is experiencing rapid growth - now what? How to you determine when you have grown
to where you need to build out the service? How do you grow WebSphere or the File Service Space? How do you add additional Web Servers or is it better to add a proxy server?
Learn how to judge and decide what you need to change - and how to then implement it.

Adm10. Enrich your IBM Connections profiles by extending the profiles data model

Thursday, March 24 | 13:30 - 14:30 | D. Saturn

The profiles application is the core of your Connections deployment, it gives insight into the most valuable asset of your company: the people. The profiles service federates information from different source systems into one single reference. To enrich this important part of Connections we can extend the default Profiles data model and tailor it to your company's needs. By doing this, Profiles will become the" place to go" to access people information in your company: a place available to all employees wherever they work, resulting in a higher ROI for your Connections deployment.

Com01. Boost Your IBM Domino Server Security with BCC DominoProtect

Wednesday, March 23 | 14:45 - 15:30 | B. Neptune

Whether you are a pro or just getting your teeth into the world of Domino administration, we've collected five common pitfalls (and their remedies) in Domino security that everyone should be aware of!
In this session we will not only look at why is it important to protect your server ID but also how to protect it while still allowing unattended server restarts! We will also see how to secure the ID Vault with BCC DominoProtect to prevent malicious access. Perhaps you would like to open up your Domino server for web access? We'll look at what to keep in mind and how to do it easily. In addition we will also discuss how to prevent misuse of the Full Access Administration feature and how to track, prevent and rollback any unauthorised changes in real time - all with easy configuration steps using BCC DominoProtect.

Dev06. OAuth 2.0 for developers – the technology you need but never really learned

Wednesday, March 23 | 16:00 - 17:00 | E. Pluto

OAuth 2.0 has become the defacto way to authenticate to IBM Connections and cloud services such as IBM Connections Cloud, Google and SalesForce and is *the* way to bridge systems. Despite being very powerful surprisingly few IBM Connections developers actually know of it or enough about it. OAuth 2.0 has been in IBM Connections for many releases and allows other services or API programs to impersonate users – and hence work as the user – without the user relinquishing control of their credentials. It’s very powerful stuff. This session acts as a primer on OAuth 2.0 for developers and administrators teaching you the ropes as well as teaching developers how to start utilizing OAuth 2.0 for IBM Connections on-premises as well as for IBM Connections Cloud. If you are developing for IBM Connections this is for you. Be warned – there will be code…

Dev08. "Marty, You're Just Not Thinking Fourth Dimensionally": Troubleshooting XPages

Thursday, March 24 | 13:30 - 14:30 | C. Jupiter

When XPages code doesn't work as expected, often it's because the expectation was wrong. With the various phases of the XPages lifecycle, validation, the various event handler settings, embedding Server-Side JavaScript within Client-Side JavaScript or scoped variables, understanding what's really there when your code wants it is key troubleshooting XPages. This session will help you think fourth dimensionally to better pre-empt the outcomes and troubleshoot when things don't work out like you expect. You'll realise whether or not the bridge over Clayton...Shonash Ravine will be there to ensure your XPages make it Back to the Future.

Dev10. Eclipse Plug-ins in Notes 101, and then some

Wednesday, March 23 | 17:15 - 18:00 | A. Foyer

At the beginning of time, Notes Development was built largely on Forms and Views. While Forms and Views are still the foundation for the modern Notes application, a new kid came on the block a few years ago. One of the most powerful development tools to make its way into Notes development is Eclipse. However, the journey from Forms and Views to Eclipse applications is a rocky one filled with pitfalls and gotchas. To try to demystify the development and installation of an Eclipse Plug-in for Domino, I will provide a sample application start to finish done using Eclipse and Domino.

Str09. Is your company culture ready for collaborative business and which road to take?

Wednesday, March 23 | 13:30 - 14:30 | E. Pluto

Do you know what your employees need to collaborate effectively? How do you ask the right questions for needs rather than functionality? Do you know the perceived company culture? Your company culture is the start point for your social business journey. Where do you stand now? Where do you need to go? What are the primary focus areas that would work for you? What approach is right for you? Through our specific developed survey held among all employees at your organization you get a better understanding of the perceived company culture and a better way to asses the collaboration need and current status of collaboration practices. From there on we plan your social business journey. We pick one of four specific flavors from Silverside’s 3G adoption approach to set the course that is right for you. We will demonstrate our social business culture test with findings from a customer, representing their company culture as a person, and the path forward to becoming a social business in the adoption approach suited to this culture.
