What happended to the WebSphere Portal Conferences?
So, what did happen to the WebSphere Portal Conferences? A new name and an expanded range of WebSphere portal-related topics and sessions!
Now called the IBM Portal Excellence Conference (PEC), these series of worldwide events are still the largest annual technical conferences dedicated to WebSphere Portal products and solutions...but not just technical. The new name reflects the conference's evolving expansion of topic areas that organizations have told us are important to them from a business perspective - and how Web portal (and related) technology can, and has, effectively addressed these business challenges. All of this adds up to achieving technical and business excellence with Web portals, so hence, the new name!
The first PEC of 2009 just wrapped up in Macau, China; the next PECs scheduled are:
Here is a preview of the session topics and breadth of information that will be shared as part of the event. Of course one of the most valuable benefits of the event remains the opportunity to network and work personally with peers, business partners and IBMers all interested in and involved with WebSphere Portal....so you can learn, share, hear and be heard (and as usual, with some fun along the way!). Please take a moment to see what the PEC can offer to help you get the most out of portal - we hope to see you there!
