In a week we will reveal some more details about Genesis at Adobe MAX and also demo the latest version in development. We have been quiet on this Blog for a while, being busy writing code and working with our early pilot partners. Now we are ready to demo and meet you at MAX.
So if you are interested in Enterprise 2.0, mash-ups, enterprise Flex development and knowledge worker collaboration make sure to come to our MAX session on Monday at 2:00pm (Moscone West 2014). You might also want to pre-book the session in your agenda builder.
In the session we will talk about the use cases for Genesis, provide an overview of the functionality and give an extensive demo of the current client. Specifically for Flex developers we will discuss how you can convert your existing Flex applications to Genesis “tiles” and publish them in the Genesis catalog. If you have been developing interesting Flex applications for business users Genesis provides a new way of distributing your apps.
If you want to discuss Genesis 1:1 just drop me an email (mzeller[at]adobe.com) and we can meet during the conference.
I just got confirmation from Ismael Ghalimi that I got a presentation session at the upcoming Office 2.0 conference in San Francisco. It will be the first public demo of the Genesis development in progress and I am excited that we can do it at Office 2.0. I attended the conference last year and really liked the mix of customer, vendor and analyst presentations. The vendor showcase was really interesting as well and I will certainly roam it this year again to find potential partners for the Genesis eco-system.
So if you are attending Office 2.0 please come to my session on Friday at 8:15am (I know it is early, but I promise it will be worth it). If you didn’t plan to attend Office 2.0 you might want to consider registering last minute. As an incentive all attendees will receive a HP 2133 Mini-Note PC.
Office 2.0 kicks off this fall’s conference season for me. The following week I will present at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas and other conferences including SAP TechEd in Berlin and Adobe MAX in San Francisco. More about those soon.
Tomorrow morning I am flying to Aspen to participate in the first Enterprise UI Summit. The Summit is organized by Jive Software and brings together an interesting mix of enterprise software practitioners and UI designers from companies like SAP, Google and Adobe. In preparation for the summit I answered a couple of questions which Jive CMO Sam Lawrence emailed me the other day. You can find the discussion here. His blog has also the profiles of other participants which are worthwhile to read if you are interested in UI design for enterprise applications.
I am certainly proud of the Genesis UI design and excited to show it to some other experts in the field and get feedback.
During the next months we will conduct a couple of roadshows as part of our effort to get early feedback from potential Genesis (code name) users. We plan to visit three regions in the United States: Dallas/Austin, Seattle/Portland and Chicago.
We are specifically interested to talk with Sales Management, Sales Operations Management, Finance Management (focus on Financial Planning and Analysis) as well as IT professionals in charge of enterprise collaboration. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested to meet with us please contact me at mzeller[at]adobe[dot]com. The Genesis team (there will be about four of us) will visit your company and conduct a 2 hour session to discuss your current usage of business applications and collaboration tools as well as demonstrate the latest version of Genesis and encourage participants to provide feedback into our product roadmap. You also will be first in line to get an invite for the Genesis private beta release we have planned for later this year.
If you are wondering what Genesis is all about see my previous overview post.
Looking forward to hear from you.
