What is Traveler?

It may seem a bit late in the game to publish content like this, but lately I have been asked this question by more that one customer.  What is Traveler exactly?  Now granted, they are most often looking to replace a BES and the associated costs, but the explanation needs to be made just the same.  In the event anyone else also happens to find them selves answering this question frequently, I shared a small and simple slide deck for easy copy-paste operations to expedite the inclusion of this information in any deck.  The content came from the Traveler web site information, and I just formatted and doctored it up to be nice on a slide.

Lotus teams with WebSphere to release a NEW Portal certification

From IBM:

This certification is the first of its kind in IBM Collaboration Solutions in that it transcends the typical product divisions associated with IBM certifications by recognizing skills developed using another brand's technology, in this case WebSphere Application Server.
To achieve this certification, an individual needs to obtain certification in Portal 7 System Administration and then take the applicable Websphere test. Here is the complete path:
Achieve "IBM Certified System Administrator - WebSphere Portal 7.0"
AND Pass "000-377 - IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V7.0, Core Administration"

Is This Science Fiction, or IBM Innovation?

While I am not typically interested in what IBM is doing with “hardware” these days, the potential that this technology brings to the world is undeniable.  Kudos to IBM.  This is truly where SciFi and reality meet.
