IBM Impact 2007

Posted in
Robert LeBlanc, General Manager SOA and Websphere, announced the merger of the WebSphere Technical Exchange and the Transaction & Messaging Conference into IBM Impact 2007. "The WebSphere platform powers SOA, and so for the first time, we are bringing together under one roof WebSphere Technical Exchange and the Transaction & Messaging Conference. You'll get all the value and benefits you've come to expect from these premier conferences and much more. This global conference will bring together over 4,000 IBM customers, Business Partners, industry analysts and IBM executives representing companies in your industry." IBM Impact 2007 is scheduled for May 20 - 25, in Orlando, Florida. Registration will open sometime in January. The Agenda is still just a skeleton with no details. Keep on coming back for more details! I'm glad to see that Mark Burnett from Survivor will be there to address the attendees. Maybe we have a Survivor Mainframe in the works????

Site Changes

SPAM Due to an insane amount of spam being posted as comments I will have to stop any postings from non registered users by Friday November 10. After Friday you will have to login or create an account to post news or comments. I would have preferred to have the site open for anyone to post but these spam posts will completely take the site over. New Content CICS Tools is a section for listing CICS tools and software with links to the vendor. (The list is a work in progress, and is by far not complete yet.) Feel free to add software to this list or to correct information if you see something wrong. Also any recommendations on the classification of the tools will be appreciated. I'm working on a section for "Services" (consulting etc.) and will have that up and available in a few days. Thanks. Ian
