Most were built 10+ years ago with no Web, mobile, or social. This session describes the application revolution taking place, covering the options and best practices required for success. Migration and new development will be compared and contrasted. Real-world data will demonstrate the positive potential return on investment.

My #IamLUG 2013 Presentation - What’s Next - Application Modernization Roadmap For Socializing IBM Notes and DominoMay 8 2013
As the second calendar quota of 2013 has begun, I wanted to start a series of blog entries to talk about my day to day efforts and where I am having success and failures. I think the idea of application modernization is appealing to many, but there is not enough discussion for people to know what it means. Hopefully through this discussion that can change. As I talk with customers about projects, there is a lot of discussion around 'modernizing our applications.' For those of you that know me and have heard me speak, this is a topic right up my alley. Almost every customer has applications that are years old. How many years varies, but let's call them from 5 to 20 years old. These applications still run. They still perform the business function they were built for. They get tweaked here and there, but for the most part, they are left alone. IT organizations focus on new OS, ERP, CRM, and HR systems. Line of business applications are left to run as they are. As organizations begin to

This is the session that David Via and I gave this morning at IamLUG 2011 The Notes/Domino Application Development Competitive Advantage - IamLUGView more presentations from John Head. "Some organizations are neglecting or under-utilizing one of the greatest IT assets in their portfolio today - the Notes/Domino application platform. Some are even considering re-coding Domino applications in other languages and development tools. In this session we present the business case and technical merits of Notes and Domino in direct comparison to other tools such as Microsoft SharePoint. Based on data collected from real-world engagements we will demonstrate the positive return on investment of the Notes platform. We will also discuss PSC’s “Application Modernization” strategy and how it helps move customers from merely maintaining Notes applications to increasing their value with XPages and advanced collaboration functionality."
Application Modernization is not about Rip and Replace - It’s about building on top of what exists todayFebruary 22 2011
In my blog entry After all these years of saying "Applications too!" when talking about Notes & Domino, this is the time to focus on apps!, Wayne macKirdy made this comment: At the same time, a large percentage of our work force is still in the brick and mortar HQ. And all the pretty little toys that the field force is working with are not available, and not needed. And here's the rub...the HQ and the field MUST exchange information to get the job done. Too many "toy" manufacturers are driving the enterprise, and leaving a lot of folks behind! I am not sure if Wayne thinks I agree or disagree with him based on my slides and post, but for the record, I think the foundation of the Application Modernization movement is about taking what applications you have and adding to them. I am not advocating a rip and replace strategy in any manner. In the Notes & Domino World, this starts with XPages. Why? Because you can keep your business logic and existing application interfaces in plac

Earlier this week, I presented on the top of Application Modernization with David Via of IBM. One of the first slides that I presented was the following This slide has generated a few comments and discussion, so I wanted to expand my thoughts on what the slide says. I truly believe that we are at a crossroads around applications. Take any specific vendor out of the conversation for a moment, but we are seeing a coverage of a number of issues. First, email is becoming as much a commodity as productivity software. Two years ago, we heard IBM introduce Lotus Symphony for free because productivity software was not only expected software, but feature saturation had hit and it was time to remove the financial burden of maintaining the licenses. At the same time, we saw Google push hard with Goolge Docs. OpenOffice.org has mad a real dent in Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia in various forms. We have also watched many users abandon the preferred IT platform to use their preferred
