Liferay Portal Solutions Forum
Speakers List - UK
At a gathering like this, everyone is an expert in a particular topic. Based on the idea of the World Café method of collective knowledge, it is important for us to bring together people for a time of conversation in Expert Exchange groups.
In a moderated small group setting, best practices will be discussed, ideas exchanged and questions answered. The goal is to learn from peers, challenge each other and gain new insights. After 30 minutes in one group, delegates rotate groups and immerse themselves in yet another high-level topic. Previous years' delegates have identified the Expert Exchange as a unique highlight of the event.
Join us as we explore open systems and overall architecture; government-as-a-platform; and the open systems alliance and how we can use it to build the necessary technical capabilities in government. Further scope for discussion includes deeper implementation details and project methodologies/techniques used, such as agile and guerrilla testing.
There is no doubt that Free and Open Source software has had a big impact on business. Public organisations and private businesses are using open source at an ever-increasing rate, taking advantage of its lower cost and easier maintenance. But many companies consider open source as a "means to an end", just a tool to use to achieve business results, even though their business is built primarily on open source software. Join this Expert Exchange table to share how you are using open source and the benefits and cost of becoming a recognised leader and influencer in the open source on which you depend.
The discussion will start with a short introduction to Lean UX and a mobile-first design, best practice and the benefits that it confers to solution development including greater user engagement and commercial advantages. We will then look to explore how projects are employing best practice methodologies and principles, the barriers or limitations to doing so, and what can be done to effect the culture, processes, technology and systems needed to support good mobile-first Lean UX.
Join us for this Expert Exchange session as we take a deep dive into the value, outworkings and outcomes of real digital engagement.
Liferay Cloud Services is a new online platform that offers a set of tools and services that will help our customers succeed on their Liferay projects. Join the conversation as Edwin Chung leads a discussion around exploiting metrics and analytics through this new platform.
With the ever-increasing need to find competitive advantage, this session will address the challenges organisations face in truly engaging with their employees and making them more productive, and how those same approaches can provide cross-organisational group collaboration with partners, customers and other stakeholders enabling closer working together and knowledge sharing.
How can your organisation avoid vendor lock-in and unsustainable costs? What business and technical questions needed to be addressed to achieve an open source strategy? Join this session as we discuss the reasons for choosing an open source strategy, the decisions that had to be made and stuck by to make it work, and the resulting business outcomes.
