14-15 May 2019


Every year we try to organize a major event, and an extra afternoon meeting. Every time we are happily surprised by the number of people that show up. A positive sign for sure. In Q3 of 2012 we announced that our scope expanded to include The Netherlands. BLUG then stood for 'Benelux Lotus User Group'. When IBM decided the name Lotus was no longer viable, we followed and changed the name of the BLUG events to 'Engage', at the end of 2013. In March 2016 we finally managed to officially change the name for the non-profit organisation to 'Engage User Group'..

How to make Domino and Office 365 your Dream Team

Many companies are working with Office 365 in some way, Mail may have been migrated, Teams may be in use and other products in the office 365 suite. The IBM Collaboration suite can work hand in hand with Office 365, but how do you achieve this?
User and access management of multi platforms has always been a huge challenge for companies. Cloud-based systems are adding another level of complexity on top of it. Challenges will also include system integration, mail coexistence from Domino applications to Outlook mail and last but not least rightsizing licensing.  
In this session we will explore some of the possibilities to work collaboratively between the ICS portfolio and Office 365 and to resolve some of these challenges.  
There is no dark side – it is all about collaborating with the best solutions and apps available.
