Often the hidden power of a platform lies in its Software Development Kits (SDKs) and IBM Sametime is no exception. IBM Sametime has one of the richest SDKs of any UC platform, and knowing about its capabilities can allow companies to understand further how they can fully exploit all of the capabilities Sametime offers. Come to this session to learn about the different SDK components and to see examples of how customers are using the SDK to integrate Sametime into their Communication Enabled Business Processes (CEBP)

  4. 4. Why care about Sametime toolkits/SDKs? ■ Communications Enabled Business Processes (C.E.B.P.*) add value to your deployment ■ IM is like Email, everyone has it, integrated IM is where you gain competitive advantage. Theres no advantage in being the same. ■ If youre just using IM its relatively easy to switch to another IM vendor, if youre using integrated IM solutions, then its much more complex and costly. ■ Sametime Toolkit solutions require a full Sametime License. Sametime Entry License is not entitled to use Toolkit solutions.* for those of you playing buzzword bingo | © 2012 IBM Corporation
