Presentation: IBM’s Offerings to the Open Source Community (Matt Stobo)

With the pendulum continually swinging between computing on the client and computing on the server companies like IBM must stay innovative to remain competitive and develop innovative solutions to help their clients innovate in order to compete. People think of Big Blue as mainframes, proprietary software, and robust, but heavy application servers. With the pendulum now in the space of fatter clients and lighter servers what does IBM have to offer in this seemingly unfamiliar territory where open source, WEB 2.0, and LAMP reign. In this presentation we will discuss some of IBM’s offerings in this space and how they can be used to help you compete.

Matt Stobo is a Senior IT Specialist with IBM, where he focuses primarily on the WebSphere brand of products. He works with and advises many fortune 100 companies on their WebSphere environments. He has presented at the WebSphere Technical Exchange and has published articles on IBM’s Developerworks.
