I am excited to share that I will be speaking at the upcoming IBM TechXchange Conference in Las Vegas on September 11-14. I will be sharing insights about our Integration products, and I am looking forward to engaging with our users and answering their questions.

My sessions will consist of technology breakouts and hands-on labs of multiple IBM products. The sessions I am involved in are detailed below.

Join us for the following sessions!

Lab Session 1901 -- Transition to Cloud Native Integration with App Connect Enterprise on CP4I

This lab introduces you to the process of assessing container readiness of your existing IBM Integration Bus resources in an on-premises VM environment using ACE Transformation Advisor. We will focus on modernizing old-style configurations like MQ Server binding or configurable services into updated policy projects. We will guide you through the migration of your integration flows to IBM Cloud Pack for Integration (CP4I), including necessary refactoring based on ACE Transformation Advisor recommendations. Finally, we will explore how to enhance application scalability in containers using replica sets and auto-scaling policies.

Lab Session 2516 -- Mastering Custom Connectors with the Connector Development Kit For Your Business

Connectors are crucial for integrating applications, building APIs, and responding to events. Without them, versatility, standardization, scalability, and maintenance become challenging. This session invites you to explore how to craft custom connectors for efficient reuse throughout your business. It's not just about connecting systems; it's about creating bridges that streamline operations.
