IBM Websphere Portal 8 launch announcement

IBM had a launch event in Paris and Yves Darnige, IBM Marketing Manager, had the following confusing comment
Portal V8 brings in social network services on top of the Portal framework to enable a multi-channel approach of the market for a deepen customer relationship.

Anyone care to comment on what they think this means? I am slightly confused what a multi-channel approach is

Announcing a new blog

The launch is official of and the postings have begun.  It will be a shared event of a couple instructors (including me) that are certified to teach the WCS 2.5 classes and are certified in both areas of the product already. (Messaging and Team Collaboration for WCS)

I also decided to move my postings and info for the Workplace Managed Client to that site for those focusing in that areas as well.  I have been playing with it and have some impressions.

It makes my mind easier knowing people get exactly what they expect at each blog site.  There might be some cross posting or linking as needed

A great Websphere Portal clustering document just done

I came across this PDF in a newsletter alert this morning.  As the Portal space grows and Domino not only becomes the mail portlet, but in numerous places the LDAP source for the portal, the stability and scalability of this central point becomes a business necessity.  Imagine how your Domino mail system went from 1 to 3 servers in a cluster and now companies are busy building Sametime Community clusters.  Parts of technology are no longer for fun, they become parts of the business process.  Here is a sample diagram from the article:

The document is just over 40 pages long, so quite the good read in time and material.  I will say one thing.  A Domino cluster is more like a few paragraphs compared to the complexity of performing this operation.  While I have installed Portal, I have never done this step so I plan on testing this a couple times for practice.
