2. 2 Agenda

3. IBM?s Open Client Strategy

4. 4 IBM?s Client Strategy IBM?s client strategy is a customer driven strategy, based around Flexibility and choice of client platform and operating system Pervasive and embedded clients as well as desktops Reduced total cost of ownership, especially through server-managed clients Cross-platform client application development through Eclipse Rich Client Platform Linux plays a key role in the wider IBM Client strategy

5. 5 IBM?s Open Client Strategy Provide applications and desktop services that can work on different operating system ? centrally provisioned and managed Focus on Open Standards based solutions Align with IBM product strategy and exploit IBM Research technology Create Solutions that can be replicated with IBM clients Lead the industry in integrated open client platforms Increase employee productivity/satisfaction and decrease TCO Provide IBM internal population with the ?right? client platform based on business role Speedup migration of existing business applications to the web Establish IBM Workplace as integrating platform for end user capability

6. 6 Open Document Format (ODF) Defined by OASIS OpenDocument technical committee Only (!) standard for editable office documents developed within an open community Standard XML based document format (xml in zip) Format is public available Standardized and first version published by Oasis in May 2005 ISO certification in May 2006 IBM has three members of the technical committee Is the default file format for Productivity Tools .odt, .ods, .odp

7. Open Client for Linux Deployment

8. 8 Goals It is important that IBM showcase an enterprise deployments of Open Client. This project must support and demonstrate IBM commitment to Open Client Provide Linux Client as a supported, internal service offering Deployment of Open Client for Linux to the targeted segment Migration of users from the earlier versions of Linux client

9. 9 Approach Pragmatic and deliberate approach Start by looking at end user usage and determine where Linux is appropriate Deployment on a volunteer basis -> ?Community Approach?

10. 10 IBM Client Platform Environment - Standardized Support Central Help Desk Web ticketing SME Local support IBM Standard Solutions Finder Hardware Corporate wide standard: Windows and Linux End to end Workstation Asset Management Software/Applications Has been long accepted in the Windows environment Corporate Integration: Intranet, Eclipse, ODF, and so on Processes Asset Management: Data tracking, Planning, and so on Infrastructure Image delivery User Profiling Authentication BluePage classification IBM Standard Asset Manager
