Today was a long, but fulfilling, day.
A bit different from yesterday, I spent the morning helping our customers register for industry round tables and then followed that up with showing customers the new Integrated Service Management Simulator Game in the Expo Center.
Tuesday, as you know, is when IBM makes product announcements and this Tuesday was no different.
Jamie Thomas talked about a number of announcements (including the ones below) in her portion of the general session (which can be found on the Livestream)
I would call your attention to the following two Announcement Letters that were released today:
This information is covered in the press release, "IBM Advances Cloud Computing with New Software" (which includes information on the beta for the advanced virtual deployment software.
The adoption of cloud and virtualization technologies by the market is increasing.
For these technologies to be meaningful to our customers, it is on us to ensure that we can provide the levels of Visibility, Control and Automation (TM) they require to match their Integrated Service Management best practice. (and that's just what we're doing)
Press Release Round Up
The press team put out some great articles that I'd also like to call your attention to:
- Cities Get Smarter with IBM's Location-based Analytics
- Swiss Federal Railways Creates a Smarter Railroad with IBM and Alcatel-Lucent
- IBM Delivers New Software to Advance Industry Transformation
Some great coverage of the successful client relationships we've built with our industry solutions. They are worth a read (especially the Cities one).
I'd also point you to the excellent blog post Christina wrote about Intelligent Metering Network Management
Speaking of Coverage
As a sequel to yesterday's general session visual note-taking adventure, I present to you my notes from day 2 (Flickr link:
What's Next For Noah?
Tomorrow, I'll be talking to Scott Laningham on the Livestream at 12:40pm PST about Integrated Service Management and then closing out the conference and staffing the Simulator Game in the Expo Center.
If you want, stop by and say hello. I'll show you the demo and can also talk to you about anything Integrated Service Management -related.
Or Simpsons trivia. I can do my pitch as Professor Frink if you like.
Either way :-P
