Real-Time Collaboration and Mobility Seminar - Chicago Day 1 final
Tags :RTC Sametime
After presenting the session on the RTC Gateway, the response was stunned looks. Enterprises represented still have concerns over the business case that would have them opening and connecting to public providers. Security is always a concern and that issue was raised as there is no known (to me) message handler writers currently for SPIM and anti-viruses that are ready for the gateway. The ability to have your corporate name shown to other enterprises through the clearinghouse and to the public side opens need for an IM Policy to be written to cover what should be transferred and how you represent yourself. You can restrict who can access which channel (provider) but the actions of that person now directly reflect your organization. No more hiding behind screen names.
I have more to say on this topic but I am thinking of a series or podcast. Any takers on comments/interview of your thoughts in a podcast?
Dinner the first night was Wildfire, a pretty good local chain. Apparently they are expanding to other cities like Atlanta shortly. Besides the snowshowers that hit tonight, dinner was split among people trying to go to different places. We ended up at Momotaro, a Japanese restaurant for some sushi.
