This is an extension of a fast growing effort within our organization to create an interface directly to not only the engaged decision makers with our customer organizations but also the developers and tinkerers that really start to plant and care for the seeds of innovation that make the cutting edge business solutions grow. We'd like to use this as a repository for not only the usual news about upcoming products and features, but also as a way to keep you informed of what we're doing on our side of the fence to enable current and future solutions for the explosion of XTP applications and patterns that we're hoping become not only useful but also vital in customer portfolios of all shapes and sizes.
We will serve as the primary contributors. Our names are Lan Vuong and Rob Wisniewski, and we're recently been branded as 'Technical Evangelists' for the XTP cause within the WebSphere brand. As such our current focus is on the creation and education of new products and patterns within the WebSphere portfolio. The most prominent product in this space is WebSphere eXtreme Scale. We're working hard on some articles, videos and howto's surrounding the wide breadth that this product covers, with access to most of this material being channeled through this blog.
