We are pleased to bring to you again this year, our speaker blog series for IBM Connect2013. There has been a lot of name changes this past year, but one thing that hasn't changed is IBM Software Services for Collaboration's significant contribution to this event. We would like to kick off our blog series with everyone's favorite Sametime® Guru, Frank Altenburg.
Frank Altenburg is an IBM® Lotus® Senior Field Support Engineer - Subject Matter Expert for IBM® Sametime® and currently resides in Germany. He is a regular IBMConnect/Lotusphere® speaker, with this event being his sixth time attending. This year he is speaking at two sessions and is once again sharing the stage with his IBM® colleague, Volker Juergensen.
Track 06: Infrastructure
ID403: IBM Sametime System Console - One-Stop Sametime Administration (with Volker Juergensen, IBM)
One of Sametime 8.5's major improvements was the introduction of a central point of administration - the IBM Sametime System Console. In this session, we'll show Sametime administrators how to plan, deploy, and administer their Sametime 8.5.x environment. For those admins currently supporting earlier releases of Sametime, we'll also focus on the key differences between the classic Domino-based implementation and the new WebSphere, DB2 and LDAP environments.
When: Wed, 30 Jan 5:30 PM - 6:30 PMWhere: Dolphin S. Hem IV-V
This session is for all Sametime® Administrators who are using the Domino® based community server only but want to start with the new features introduced with Sametime® 8.5 and later. The attendees will see how the Sametime® System Console looks and works. They can see in live demos how prerequisites and deployments can be created, how servers and policies can be administered.
Track 10: JumpStarts and Master Classes
JMP205: From Zero to Mobile Hero: IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Mobile Access Server install (with Volker Juergensen, IBM)
IBM Sametime Server setup can be fast, smooth and easy when you know what you are doing. 120 minutes is all it takes and we will show you how! The new IBM Sametime Apps for 8.5.2 IFR1 requires just one of the new Sametime Components - the IBM Sametime Proxy Server. In this session, we want to prove that it is possible to create a "Proof-Of-Concept" setup for mobile access very quickly. We'll install the new IBM Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1 Proxy Server, the DB2 Server, the required Database and a certificate for security. At the end of the session, you can access the newly built IBM Sametime server with your iOS or Android device.
Where: Dolphin S. Hem II
With all the action going on at IBM Connect, why should attendees go to this session?
This session is for all Sametime® Administrators where their colleagues have asked if they can use the new mobile Sametime® Apps on iOS or Android devices. We will show that it is easy to install and configure the Sametime® Proxy Server and connect it to nearly any existing domino based Sametime® Community Server infrastructure.
