IBM ConnectED 2015

IBM's conference ConnectED 2015 is quickly approaching.  At the end of the month, many of us who work daily with IBM's collaboration sollutions will swarm on Orlando, Fl.  The topics of discussion this year will no doubt include IBM Verse.  If you are not familiar, this is the single largest innovation in email in quite a number of years.  It is a mail client that ir browser based and centered around making you more productive.  With a design direction of "two clicks to perform anything" and a search / recommendation engine which shares DNA with Watson, it is a very promising tool.

In the arena of Connections / Portal, we have seen a great deal of maturity.  I have been working for over a year now on building social portals with a few different organizations.  Taking advantage of Social Rendering, DDC, the advancements made with the Connections Portlets, and many other technologies.  I hope to see some coverage on these technologies as they have grown, but I don't expect them to be the crowning jewel of the show as they were in years past.

If you will be at the conference, please look me up, otherwise I will try to relay as much relevant and exciting information from the ground as I can along the way.  Safe travels from wherever you may hail!
