Ray Scott, WebSphere Development, IBM Cloud
Cheryl King, WebSphere Application Server Migration, IBM Cloud
This webinar is to help you successfully plan and complete a migration to a newer version of the WebSphere Application Server. The overall migration process requires careful planning and administration in order to maintain compatibility for your current applications. This session covers migration planning and best practices, and both configuration and application migration considerations will be covered. You will also learn about different migration strategies, including the new V9 clone strategy. This session pertains to WebSphere Application Server versions 7.0 and beyond, and includes a live demo for you to better understand the technical aspects, migration resources and support available for WebSphere V9.

Angel Diaz, IBM VP, Cloud Architecture & Technology
Jerry Cuomo, IBM Fellow, VP, Blockchain Technologies
Jason McGee, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO, IBM Cloud Platform
Mobile, cloud and big data /analytics are three trends that are changing the way that we interact with our customers, business partners and colleagues. Capturing the value from these interactions requires rapid innovation, interoperability and scalability enabled by an open technologies approach.
Senior execs from IBM will explain the importance of open technologies to your business and highlight the Open Technology Summit that is being held at InterConnect 2017 where you can interact with the industry experts and learn more.

11:00 AM EST
Kim Clark, Integration Architect, IBM
A comparison of key integration and application architecture concepts for an evolving enterprise.
Do microservices force us to look differently at the way we lay down and evolve our integration architecture, or are they purely about how we build applications? Are microservices a new concept, or an evolution of the many ideas that came before them? What is the relationship between microservices and other key initiatives such as APIs, SOA, and Agile. In this session, we will unpack what microservices really are, and indeed what they are not. We will consider whether there is something unique about this particular point in time technologically that has enabled microservice concepts to take hold. Finally, we will look at if, when, where and how an enterprise can leverage the benefits of microservices principles.

11:00 AM EDT
Roy Verweij, System Engineer for IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS and System Automation for z/OS, Belastingdienst
Workload Automation has always been a tough mountain for developers to get on top of. Usually the reserve of dedicated scheduling teams and operators, often it gets saved only for Production. Your developers spend their testing time running things manually and reinventing the wheel. Anything that heads to Production generally gets built by hand with the scheduling definitions often being "tested" by eye, or the first time they run.
IWS for zOS 9.3 introduced Workload Automation Programming Language (WAPL), which allows you to bring scheduling to the application lifecycle, saving Dev time and highlighting scheduling issues early. Many more things can be automated and integrated, such as clean-up and adhoc changes saving Ops time too.
Learn why and how Roy Verweij implemented WAPL at Belastingdienst and the impact it has had on his company.
