2010 promises to be the year for IBM WebSphere® Portal software. Launched in 2000, WebSphere Portal software is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. And the celebration has already begun at Lotusphere 2010.
A new track debuted this year at Lotusphere focused on technologies that deliver exceptional Web experiences to customers, partners, suppliers and employees. Featuring the latest IBM WebSphere Portal, Lotus, and IBM Business Partner innovations, the new track is showcasing how companies large and small are leveraging IBM WebSphere Portal and related software to differentiate themselves and achieve greater success in the marketplace. Here's a sampling of what's being featured in the new track: new IBM Industry Toolboxes for WebSphere Portal, rapid deployment via WebSphere Portal NOW, best practices, and deeper dives into WebSphere Portal and IBM accelerators for WebSphere Portal, with sessions addressing Web content management, collaboration, electronic forms-enabled business processes, dashboards, mobile portals, mashups and more. For more information on the new Exceptional Web Experience Track, download the brochure.
In addition to the new track, a new 'event within an event' entitled the “Global Business Excellence Forum @ Lotusphere 2010” is being offered, focused on tapping into the power of collaboration within the Banking, Insurance, Government and Healthcare industries. The Global Business Excellence Forum promises to be the definitive place to learn virtually everything about how to achieve better business outcomes with IBM Lotus® and IBM WebSphere® Portal software, as well as services from IBM and trusted partners. Attendees are hearing from people within organizations just like yours who have achieved exciting business outcomes by deploying IBM solutions and offerings. If you're still interested in registering or would simply like to learn more, please visit the Global Business Excellence Forum @ Lotusphere 2010 Web page.

If you weren't able to make it to Lotusphere in Orlando, FL (where the weather, unlike the past few years, was perfect!), I thought I'd share the highlights from the WebSphere Portal keynote session delivered by Larry Bowden, as part of the new Exceptional Web Experience track . Different from previous years, each Lotus product segment held its own keynote session after the opening general session (which featured the original Capt. Kirk - William Shatner - who was both amusing and interesting)...and it worked well. Here were the key messages delivered during the Portal keynote:
So, those are the highlights from the Portal keynote...if you want more insight on any this, or any of the other session from the Exceptional Web Experience track at Lotusphere, let me know or ask your favorite IBMer for more details. Also, keep an eye out for the upcoming "Lotusphere Comes To You" events that will be traveling to select locations soon!
