Here's what I'll be presenting at LS11

By Andrew Pollack on 12/03/2010 at 08:14 AM EST

This year at Lotusphere 2011 I'll be presenting the following:

1. On Jumpstart Day, I'll be presenting with Gab Davis about security. The session is called "Defense against the Dark Arts". Gab has been doing a lot of work on this already, and I'll be jumping in to work with her on it in about a week when I'm visiting with them. For the last several years, we've done our A-Z of Security in this space. The problem has been that it is increasingly difficult to cover so much material in under two hours. Gab's idea was to take a different viewpoint, and instead focus on the risks that are out there and what we need to do to mitigate them wherever possible. Instead of a laundry list of security settings, this is more focused on specific threats. I think it will be awesome.

2. IBM Lotus Domino Server & Application Performance in the Real World -- This is an expansion of what I did last year with a whole bunch of additional (and very specific) information. The "real" title here is "Perform better in the Server Room" but that wouldn't fly for the LS venue. This is both application development and administration. There's a lot of server configuration stuff here -- including hardware, SAN and Virtualization; there's a lot of setup information about http caching and so on; and there's a lot of application development performance information here. This one is about 30% more content than last year's so it should be just packed full of stuff.

3. Performing Your Own IBM Lotus Domino Security Review -- This one was packed last year with people and with content, and I've added more content and re-organized it a little bit. The focus here will be on how to go about assessing the security and stability of your own domino environment and applications, and it has some technical detail and also some management detail. It will walk through the process I use as well as the questions I ask and areas of investigation I focus on when I come in to do security assessments at client sites. This was well attended in the past and the reviews I've read have been very positive, so the expanded version this year should go well.

If you have things you'd like to see me add to any of these, please let me know.

All three sound good, but I'm especially looking forward to the "Defense
against the Dark Arts".

Congratulations on getting picked.

In twenty five years, I don't think I've ever written an entry like this, but if you need the kind of work I do now would be a great time to get in touch. Both of the big projects I had lined up for late summer and early fall have been placed on hold and will be that way for a while.

IBM has made a deal under which the Notes & Domino software and intellectual property is now being developed and maintained by HCL America. HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry. You could be excused for initially believing, as many people do when they hear this, that "they've outsourced the code to India where they'll milk it ......

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
