Dev07. Once You Go Graph
Wednesday, March 23 | 11:45 - 12:30 | D. Saturn
Faster than relational and more robust than document, graph databases are taking the big data world by storm. Every major player in big data is using them for everything from inventory control to intelligence analysis to knowledge discovery to social searching. Now you can apply this same technology to your existing Domino applications without moving or copying any data using the OpenNTF Domino API. See and learn how to apply this exciting new technology to your existing NSF databases, whether one application at a time, or for your entire domain, using both Java and JSON APIs.

Eme07. Free Beer 13! Think Outside the Sphere: Box for IBM Professionals
Wednesday, March 23 | 17:15 - 18:00 | E. Pluto
We've all had that new technology bug once in a while. You know, the one where you get a glimpse of an emerging market or tech and are compelled to play with it. Well the bug has bitten once again, and through a set of coincidences including a strategic partnership with IBM, the recent release of a simple set of APIs, and integration with IBM Connections and IBM Domino and Notes, Box has proven to be a very interesting bug. In this session Rob will explain the Box platform for file sharing and collaboration, discuss the IBM | Box partnership, demonstrate the integration points provided by IBM and partners, detail the security model for admins, and overview the Box Content and View APIs for developers -- all in terms that Domino and Connections folks will understand. As this isn't a vendor session, Rob will also share any pain points and perceived areas for improvement as we explore how IBM professionals can take advantage of the Box platform.
