Lotusphere 2008: Sametime All The Time


The Lotusphere session list has been posted, and in addition to looking like a killer lineup across the board, I'm very excited about the Lotus Sametime and Unified Communications and Collaboration related sessions.  

And, just like last year, Dolphin Southern Hemisphere IV-V will be your home for everything Sametime.  

We've got 15 core sessions across the tracks (a few of which will repeat), not to mention jump starts, hands-on sessions, and sessions at BD Day.  Over the course of the week, we'll cover our roadmap, deep dives on Sametime Standard 8 and Sametime Advanced 8, and provide views into our overall product strategy and specifically our Unified Communications and telephony strategies and roadmap.  We'll give you a glimpse of things to come, and provide you with the concrete information you need to go back and sell your management on why you need to be using this technology (if you're not already).  We've got details on developing plugins, and sessions and a hands-on lab on the Sametime Gateway (as well as the client).  Wes Morgan is returning for his always popular Sametime Deployment jumpstart, and we're adding a new jumpstart on how you can leverage and make the most of the Sametime platform.  You'll find details on integrating Sametime with Microsoft Office, and learn more about Sametime Unyte.  And of course, you'll find Sametime and our Business Partners all over the show floor, the developer labs, and elsewhere.  

It's going to be a great event!
