IBM Interconnect Preview

Next week is IBM’s InterConnect event in Las Vegas. With so many recent developments surrounding IBM’s efforts in cloud and DevOps, I’m looking forward to getting some clarity and the opportunity to get hands on with some of the technology. As a business partner I have the added opportunity to attend their Tech Academy prior to the event and spend time actually getting some hands-on experience with UrbanCode Release and Deploy as well as how these integrate with BlueMix. DevOps and PaaS in one session, gotta say I am looking forward to this session.



I will also be speaking at the event, both times on DevOps. On Tuesday, I will be presenting in the Expo Theater:

DevOps and Continuous Integration, Testing and Delivery have gained widespread attention among IT management as ways to help IT deliver value for the business and foster greater business agility. However, some customers often find it challenging and complex to adopt continuous processes and agile development around the combined Sterling Order Management, WebSphere Commerce Server, and IBM Integration Bus product stack. Perficient has been working with customers to overcome these challenges and has defined a set of best practices for delivering parallel development streams in a continuous delivery scenario with IBM e-commerce solutions, which they will present at this session.

Then on Wednesday morning, I’m going to be participating on a panel with some top-notch practitioners:

Valerie Scott (HM Health Solutions), Curtis Yanko (Cigna), Peter Spung (IBM), JP Morgenthal (Perficient Inc.), John Karnes (IBM)Wednesday, February 25, 2015
09:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Mandalay Bay, Islander Ballroom A


Come hear experiences from a panel of customer experts who deliver continuously! Dialog with them about implementation details including use cases, skill development, process improvements, reporting and governance, business benefits and more. Why? Because delivering software is extremely challenging—and made more so by the demands of the marketplace to innovate faster while adopting a sea change in technology including secure cloud, mobile, big data analytics, and social platforms. Agile is speeding up the pace of development for all platforms, new and standard, and is becoming mainstream. These customers have also dramatically increased deployment speed and productivity, with comparable or improved quality and risk.

I’m looking forward to getting out there and talking with customers to hear their stories and offer assistance where possible.
