Enter the #EMC xCP xCelerator Challenge #xcpContest & Win!

Xcpchallenge
Show off your xCP chops and share your creations to help the xCP community build powerful solutions more quickly. Enter a winning xCelerator and you can share in the $50,000 prize pool!

What is the xCP xCelerator Challenge?

The xCP xCelerator Challenge is a contest that invites EMC Documentum customers, partners, and employees to submit working xCelerators to the xCP xCelerator xChange, a library of xCelerators contributed by the xCP community. The entries will be judged by the community and a panel of experts, and winners will share a $50,000 prize pool.

What Is An xCelerator?

An xCelerator is one or more assets that can be used to accelerate the creation, adoption, and/or implementation of an xCP solution. An xCelerator is not necessarily a complete, running application; instead, it is intended to hasten application development by providing key pieces of functionality.

What Types of xCelerators are Eligible for the Challenge?

For this Challenge, we're looking for executable (working) sample applications or single-purpose xCelerator assets. See the Judging Criteria for a complete description of the contest categories.

Who Can Enter?

The Challenge is open to all Documentum customers, partners, and employees.

Submission Categories

Each submission must be in one of three categories:

  1. Sample Application: Needs to provide the foundation for an end to end case management or BPM solution, covering the full lifecycle from creation to completion. An example is the Grants Management sample application that is provided with the xCP product.
  2. xCelerator Asset: A standalone component that can be plugged into any xCP application. Examples that are included with xCP include the Advanced Search xCelerator and several Activity Template xCelerators.
  3. Employee Submission: The best xCelerator submitted by an EMC employee. Employees may submit either type of xCelerator, but only one prize will be awarded.

We're looking for submissions that are executable or deployable to a working xCP application. That means xCP Design Patterns are not eligible for this contest (although you're encouraged to contribute those as well to help raise your community status).

What are the Prizes?

One cash prize will be awarded in each of the following categories:

  • Best Sample Application: $20,000
  • Best xCelerator Asset: $10,000
  • Best Employee Entry: $10,000

Plus, each of the three winning teams will receive one conference pass plus expenses to participate in an expert panel at the next EMC World, May 2011 in Las Vegas (total of 3 passes).

An Added Bonus!

Network with others across the entire EMC Documentum Developer Network!!

Sounds Great! How Do I Enter?

See How, What, and When to Submit your xCelerator

Timelines

  • Contest opens October 26th 2010 at Momentum Lisbon

EMC Monster Mash 2010 Winners Announced at #EMCWorld

Some very cool things came out of EMC's recent Monster Mash Developer Challenge - check it out, and join me in congratulating the winners!

Have you joined the EMC Community Network yet? You should - you'll get to do fun things like this, as well as connect to customers, partners, peers, and folks all over the world who share a passion for technology!

On the last day of EMC World 2010, $30,000 in cash prizes were awarded to winners of the Monster Mash Developer Challenge. This contest, hosted by the EMC Developer Network (EDN), selected the best “mashups,” or composite applications, written using at least 2 different EMC platforms and, optionally, any industry software.

The goals of the Challenge were to showcase the breadth of EMC platforms, how straightforward it is for developers to use EDN resources to learn and develop apps based on many EMC platforms, and to provide “crowd sourced” software code, at no cost, for use by anyone in future development efforts.

 

Grand Prize and Documentum xCP - Game Content Services

Moster Mash Grand Prize - $15,000
Best Documentum xCP Mashup - $5,000

Provide video gamers a simple cost effective means of sharing customizations with one another.

The ability to customize game content, such as custom game characters is very popular amongst gamers. However finding an affordable accessible solution for sharing this content continues to be a challenge.  Game Content Services a proof of concept application submitted by Derrick Lau demonstrates a solid solution to this problem.

Derrick on the Monster Mash Challenge:

“The Monster Mash Challenge has been a very rewarding experience.  Using EDN, I was able to quickly learn enough about Atmos Online, to include it in my mashup. I intend to use Atmos Online again in my consulting practice specializing in Documentum-based solutions, as well as for my personal interest in sharing game content in the cloud with other indie developers.”


Best  Atmos Mashup -  Metaconomy Storage Monitor

The Metaconomy Storage Monitor is a tool that can be used by EMC and their channel partners to gather data via the web on storage status of all of their customer’s storage implementations.

"The Storage Monitor", can aid the EMC channel to accurately manage data harvested and aggregated from customer implementations of:

The purpose is for EMC and their channel to be able to have:
  • Point in time visibility of sales status on a day by day basis
  • Drive stronger compliance standards through the EMC channel
  • More pro-active towards their customers by delivering better service
  • To better know more about their customers, and
  • be positioned to grow the business

Richard on the Monster Mash Challenge:

“The Monster Mash Challenge gave developers both the tools and the encouragement to tackle something new and grow.  It provided EMC with a broad perspective of the many ways developers can quickly and easily create new innovative apps…ideas that EMC might never have considered before, like gaming, desktop management tools or our very own storage data harvesting tool  integrated into our channel performance management solution.“ 


Best  Employee Mashup - Tech Notes Authoring Solution


Junaid Asifali

Best Employee Mashup - $5000

One of the important activities of a technical support organization is to create a body of knowledge that can be used and shared with both customers and internal employees. This knowledge typically takes the form of technical notes which document known solutions to specific problems. Apart from the main support site, these solutions may be referenced by other internal and external websites.

Tech Notes allows technical support organizations to create support notes which can be shared with both customers and internal employees. The solution uses Documentum xCP for the content authoring process and xDB to store the approved solution and Atmos to store any binary documents which support the solution. The goal is to achieve this with minimal coding.

Spots4Bots @ #EMCWorld 2010 – Geo-tagging at its best!

VEX With so many social media options, it’s hard to pick and choose what ones make the most sense for conferences. We typically find ourselves using Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube, with a splash of Facebook for our annual EMC World Conferences.

But…we’re always looking for ways to spice it up!

When Len Devanna shared his great idea of using FourSquare at EMC World to drive donations of Vex Robotics kits to middle schools and high schools in support of student competitions, as we’ve done in the past, I was all for it! This is something really cool!!


A bit about the Vex Robotics Competition

EMC is a proud sponsor of many VEX Robotics competitions and programs, which offers students a unique and challenging team-based activity that puts high school and middle school students' engineering and technology skills to the test. Students collaborate, often with guidance from teachers and mentors, to build the most innovative robots possible and work together during competitions to obtain the most points possible, ultimately winning prizes for their schools.

In addition to having a great time and building amazing robots, through their participation in the VEX Robotics Competition and their work within their team, students build their interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and also gain valuable life skills. VEX Robotics scrimmages and competitions are held in many different cities, states and countries. Check out their website for more information!

Check out this video for a bit more about the program!

 


 

 

Using FourSquare to drive donations at EMC World

We have the pleasure of partnering with our Community Involvement team to donate one of these robotics kits to a school system for every 500 or so FourSquare #EMCWorld Venue check-ins during the EMC World event. You can also friend EMC World on FourSquare if you’re interested in receiving messages from us during the conference. I’ve also created a “Cheat Sheet” for folks interested in participating.

EMC’s support for this program enables students around the world to pursue their passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, so we hope you’ll join us in our Spots4Bots campaign!!

Happy Birthday to My Friend, the Web! #20Years

Happy Birthday! The web is something that many of us take for granted now. We don’t even think twice about popping open a browser page and reading about the latest news, weather, sports, fitness, parenting, or whatever our passion. If you can think of it - chances are good that you can find it on the web. In fact, I’d be curious as to what there might be anymore that you can’t find on the web.

I have always been fascinated by the web. I remember the stars in my eyes the first time I was able to search on something and find information about that topic from people and sources I’d never even heard of before. It was amazing! And for me, it still is.

 ON MagazineThat’s why I found the current issue of ON Magazine to be fascinating! You see, the entire issue is focused on the web and its 20th birthday!  Many of us, in fact, here at EMC have found this issue to be one that resonates deeply with us. Our Blogging Corps has each been taking a turn in sharing our own thoughts on the questions posed by ON Magazine. I was tagged by fellow blogger and EMCer David Spencer, so here are my thoughts…

 

How has the web changed my life?

I can’t even begin to list all of the ways that the web has changed my life. I’m on the web every single day. It’s hard to imagine a day without it, to be honest.  Does that qualify as an addiction?

The first obvious thing that comes to mind is the fact that I have chosen a career focused on the web. Every single day I use the web to communicate with others, both inside and outside of EMC, about what I’m working on. Part of my responsibility is to be on the social web, to understand it, and to teach others how to use it while also developing best practices, use cases, and guidelines for participation that help people to understand how to use it to represent EMC well.

Stargate SG-1 The second thing that comes to mind is the ease with which I can access information. As a Stargate SG-1 fan, I like Chris Brogan’s analogy of “gate jumping” in this issue. The web allows me to jump around and view what I’m interested in, for as long as I’m interested in it and then move along and check out the next thing. As I said before – you can search on and find information on just about anything you can possibly think of. I don’t have phone books in my house any longer because I look everything up on the web. I watch news, TV shows, and movies on the web. I have even sold some (not all because some books I still love to hold in my hands while reading them) of my books that are available on the web. Every one of my research papers for my MBA had more web resources sited that physical books and periodicals. I even turned in my papers for my degree online.

I’m trying to find a facet of my life that the web doesn’t touch these days…We planned our wedding in Maui online down to the very last item. We shopped for our condo online, researched neighborhoods and communities online, even applied for our mortgage online – I never even met our mortgage broker in person. I shopped for my car online, and car insurance and a local dealer near where I lived for service. I print grocery coupons from online, and view the weekly sales ads online. I subscribe to newsletters that I’m interested in online and receive them via email. I share photos, videos and updates with colleagues and our family online. If I’m presenting at an event, my family can often view it online as though they were there. I even design and order our holiday cards online.

How has the web changed business and society?

In addition to all of the above examples of information accessibility which have certainly impacted business and society in general, there are businesses around now that are strictly online. They don’t even have a physical office that people go in to every day – business is conducted remotely via email, web meetings, phone calls, and even telepresence. Tools like Skype allow me to view and chat with anyone in the world with an internet connection and an account for free, which is still an amazing concept to me.

The web, and particularly the social web, has enabled businesses to connect with companies and individuals like never before. The possibilities for sharing and gathering information are immeasurable. Listening in the social web enables us to be that “fly on the wall” we’ve all wished we could be at one time or another when looking for feedback on our companies and products. The social web enables us to send messages far and wide for very little investment (generally only someone’s time) in such a viral nature that we’ve still not fully harnessed how far our reach is with such social platforms.

Worldmap The web has connected the world and made it much flatter and enabled worldwide collaboration in ways that we might never have imagined 20 years ago. I can talk to anyone, anywhere, at any time, many of whom I’d have never had an opportunity to meet, had it not been for the web.  

What do I think the web will look like in twenty years?

It’s hard to say for sure…but I think buzz words like social media, Web 2.0, Web 3.0, social web will be long gone. There will be no need to define it that way because it will already be that way, and will have been for a long time…

Kids coming of age now have already always had the web all of their lives. They think it’s the norm. Imagine how it will be in another 20 years – the children coming of age in 20 years will have always had the social web and conversations and interactions that are still new to many.

I think too that the notion of websites will likely go away – content will be served up more based on individual user preferences. It will be like an uber personal landing page experience or something like that.

The web as we know it today will likely be unrecognizable in twenty years, it will have evolved and changed so much. But, imagine the possibilities….Just too cool! I can’t wait!

I've tagged Christine Christopherson to carry on the topic.

So, what about you - What do you think the web will look like in twenty years?

 

Check out the other blogs on this topic:

Christine Christopherson - The Web at 20…looking good, kid!

David Spencer - The web at #20years old

Enterprise 2.0 is still alive and well, thank you very much

Me & My Rockstar Pass I am just back from a week in San Francisco attending the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in San Fran as a featured speaker along with a whole host of other industry experts. Those of us that were on the keynote stage got “backstage passes” and felt a bit like rock stars walking around. Thanks to everyone who made it possible for me to attend a great conference!

For my part, I participated in a panel with five other members from the 2.0 Adoption Council entitled “Is Enterprise 2.0 a Crock?”  I’ll share more on the panel and the whole idea of E 2.0 “crock-i-ness” in general in another post, as I’d like to get my overall conference thoughts down here first as well as share some advice based on ongoing discussions I had with folks at the conference that I hope to be helpful to them, as well as anyone else trying to do this. 

PanelSmall Photo courtesy of @adunne's Flickr Photostream. Panel left to right: Greg Lowe, Megan Murray, Bryce Williams, me, Bruce Galinksy, and Claire Flanagan. (I took a few photos, too, at the conference, though not nearly as good as Alex's.)

I have to say that I enjoyed the conference and the city of San Francisco. The weather was exceptionally nice and the city is amazing, even though I only saw a very small portion of its loveliness due to being inside most of the time.  But nothing compared to the opportunity to meet not only my friends from the 2.0 Adoption Council - Susan Scrupski our Founder, Andy McAfee, Greg Lowe, Megan Murray, Bryce Williams, Bruce Galinksy, Claire Flanagan, Timo Elliott, Hamilton Pridgen, Bert Sandie, and Donna Lucas - in person, but also so many other folks so passionate about the topic of Enterprise 2.0. I am proud to be a member of the 2.0 Adoption Council, and a part of the Enterprise 2.0 conference, as both have done great things for me on many levels.

One thing that’s still very clear to me from the conference, and the folks that I talked to there, is that Enterprise 2.0 is alive and well in terms of both interest in “cracking the code” of rollout and implementation as well as interest in and a hunger for examples of companies that are doing it and doing it well. It’s refreshing to work for a company (EMC) that’s considered to be ahead of the curve in terms of strategy, deployment, and adoption of Enterprise 2.0 tools and behaviors behind the firewall. I know that we still have a lot of learning and work ahead of us, but it’s neat to hear what folks think of what we’ve done so far, and of course to know that I’ve been in the thick of it.

So, how does one go about thinking about and preparing to launch an Enterprise 2.0 initiative? Here’s my advice on questions you need to ask yourself and be able to answer before moving forward. I’ll be elaborating on these questions in future posts:

How do you pitch the idea and to whom?

Understanding the key stakeholders and influences that need to be involved in the initiative and decision-making will go a long way towards a successful rollout. My recommendation is to define your goals and try to include key stakeholders from as many cross-functional teams as makes sense for your organization. This will hopefully reduce the number of times you may have to go back and re-pitch and refine the plan.

How do you determine what tools to use?

Understanding your goals will lead you towards tools. My recommendation would be to start smaller and more concise to meet specific goals you’ve identified and add new functionality as your users request it - providing too many bells and whistles up front will likely turn users off.

How do you secure executive sponsorship and program funding?

Getting an executive sponsor for your initiative who “gets it” and can articulate the value of the tools you’re proposing, as well as actually use them, is going to be key to your initiative.  You’ll also want to be honest with your budgetary needs – nothing is free, not even if the software’s free – it’s still going to take someone’s time (and time is money, after all), to roll out the initiative. My recommendation is to start with a pilot or beta program to get folks interested in the offering and then scale up as needed as new users join.

How do you educate on the tools?

Educating on the tool(s) that you choose is going to be key for a successful initiative. Too often, we make assumptions about people’s level of knowledge on any particular tool or subject. My advice is that you’re going to need to prepare beginner, intermediate, and advanced training materials in multiple formats to have a truly successful educational program.

How do you roll it out to the company?

When it’s time for go-live, you’re going to need to determine how you’re going to roll it out and to whom – will it be the whole company or a sample group of folks? You’ll also want to consider any marketing and communications channels you’ll be able to take advantage of to increase awareness. My recommendation is to also have a plan in place with consistent messaging for your advocates and evangelists to take advantage of when they share the tools with others. This will help to keep the messaging consistent and avoid confusion as to what the tools are for.

How do you handle the naysayers, those that don't see the value or support the idea?

See my previous blog post on this one.

How do you measure the impact and success?

You will inevitably want to consider the measurements you will take into account to consider your initiative a success. There are lots of different measures that can be captured, and each organization is different. My recommendation is to gain insights from your key stakeholders as to what they might consider a measure of success and then propose a phase 1 list to folks for consideration. As the tools and their use evolves, so too can your measures of success.

In summary, the key ingredients for any Enterprise 2.0 initiative are:

  • Executive sponsorship
  • Funding
  • Defined goals/purpose
  • Defined “rules of engagement”
  • Partnerships are key (IT, HR, Legal, PR, Business Units, etc.)
  • Group of passionate folks
  • Patience
  • Perhaps a leap of faith
