Do you need to go beyond text based instant messaging? Is adding point-to-point live video important to your business or clients? Is the ability to integrate full Lotus Sametime capability within desktop applications of value? Do you feel like you should be able to do more with Lotus Sametime than bots, chatting and online conferencing? Now you can with Lotus Sametime 8.5, the new collaboration engine. If you have built solutions on previous versions of Lotus Sametime and need an update, or if you are new to the product, this workshop is for you.
This three day workshop will show you the server side setup, new client interface, voice conferencing, and the chatting capabilities that users love about Lotus Sametime. You will also learn how to extend Lotus Sametime with Eclipse plug-in development and deployment, and how to integrate with other Lotus products. You will see the power of working together to capture the wisdom of crowds. You can learn how to build your own custom applications to engage the community in open discussion! You will actually build sample applications to take home and show your colleagues. It's not about instant messaging; it's about collaboration.
