Portal at the Speed of Light: Techniques for Worklight integration at IBM Connect

IBM Connect 2013 is now less than two weeks away! This is my eighth visit to the conference, but the first time as a full session speaker. Along with my colleague and fellow IBM Champion, Laks Sundararajan, I will be presenting on Wednesday morning about techniques for using IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Worklight together to build mobile applications.

Here is our agenda:
IBM Worklight Portal

  • The need for multi-channel applications
  • A quick overview of Worklight
  • When to use just use Portal or Worklight by themselves
  • How to build hybrid apps using Portal and Worklight together
  • Use WCM to let your business authors drive application content
  • Leveraging Cast Iron and WebSphere MQ
  • Best Practices Speed Round
Our goal is to help you understand options for designing a mobile application integrated with your existing web and back end systems. We will show you the system architecture, a few live demos, and provide some tips on how to implement the solution for yourself.
