IBM MobileFirst in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

Looking back on 2015 gives me a reason to think about trends we are seeing. Mobile has been important to client for so long that it is not a trend, it is a requirement. What is new are requests for the inclusion of wearable technologies in road maps or strategies. I’ve seen a number of […]

Perficient at IBM Connect 2016

Living in Chicago means that winter isn’t a surprise; it may come later than expected (this year) or arrive with such fury that it shuts down the city (many years) but it arrives. Although it hasn’t been as consistent as winter, preparing for IBM Connect is something that has been occurring for several decades and […]

Calculating Value of IBM Connections

As a follow up to my recent post about Connections 5.5, I thought this report was a good companion piece, Forrester IBM Connections Total Economic Impact (TEI). One of the challenges our customers often face for internal projects is justification. A new e-commerce site can be measured and the ROI driven by hard dollar results. Similarly […]

A holiday gift, Connections 5.5 on-premise

You may have missed the release of Connections 5.5 earlier this month. This week seems like a good time to contemplate projects that you will tackle in 2016. Connections 5.5 was released on December 18th and IBM did a nice job with two webinars, both available on demand, that cover both IBM Docs 2.0 as well as Connections 5.5. The […]

A developer’s on ramp to IBM’s cloud

                                As companies migrate their solutions to the cloud, there is a need to make sure that developers are supported and brought along. For on-premises deployments, software firms such as IBM have provided developer options for both customers and partners. […]

An Early Look at Liferay 7 Features

Looking forward into 2016, here is a hint of features in Liferay 7. For those very adventurous, there is an currently alpha available but the release is still scheduled for 1Q 2016. As you can image, there has been a lot of interest in the past few months around what is in store. At the […]

Liferay embraces microservices

I heard Jorge Ferrer, VP of Engineering, Liferay, discuss Liferay’s approach to microservices in “Liferay 7: Embracing Modularity”.  This is a topic I’ve discussed at OSCON earlier this year. OSCON is the open source conference. Jorge discussed the evolution from the 1990s with monolithic applications, into the 2000s with SOA and now microservices have allowed applications to […]

Keynote Recap: Liferay Symposium NA 2015

This morning is the keynote for the Liferay Symposium. As you may have seen in the Gartner Magic quadrant, Liferay competes with very large software vendors in the horizontal portal market. The host of the event compared Liferay against the five closest competitors in the Gartner MQ. Those competitors have a market capitalization of over $700 […]

Liferay Symposium NA 2015

One of the great aspects of working in Perficient’s Strategic Advisory Team is the the chance to look at broad technology (Portals, Content, Social) vs. single vendor (I’m the Oracle Portal person, or IBM Portal, etc.). That also means that I, and my peers, divide up the portal vendors and spend time at their conferences […]

IBM Leadership Alliance 2015 Kicks Off This Week

Today through Friday, I have the opportunity to attend the IBM Leadership Alliance in Boston. The Leadership Alliance will be focused on Mobile, Social, Analytics, Content and Forms as well as Cloud. I am excited to see what IBM is going with products such as Verse, Connections, WebSphere Portal, WebSphere Content Manager and Forms Experience Builder. […]

Changes in digital payment technology

I’ve been noticing more interest in blockchain technology this year, from Bitcoin sessions at the Internet Retailing Conference and Exposition (IRCE), to active conversations at OSCON. In some circles cryptocurrency such as bitcoin, are linked to issues of government surveillance, libertarian ideals and personal freedom. While those topics can generate a lot of discussion, I am more interested in […]

Addressing Cloud Security with Cloud Security Enforcer

As I have written about previously, IBM and Box are working together to make cloud file sharing more secure. IBM recently announced another piece of the puzzle, IBM Cloud Security Enforcer, which combines Identity as a Service (IaaS) with the ability to scan and detect cloud offering. Once detected, IBM will attempt to use one of […]
