In case you haven't heard, the SOA event of the year is on the way for IBM Business Partners. The IBM Impact 2009 conference will be kicking off with a Business Partner Development Day on Sunday, May 3. The day is exclusively focused on you, our IBM Business Partners. As I‘ve said before here on this blog, our partners are the voice that influences IBM.
The special Business Partner Development day will feature a general session with top IBM executives, including Shaun Jones, Vice President, WW Business Partner and General Business Marketing.
You'll also have the opportunity to visit the Business Partner Cafe where you can discuss resources one-on-one with the IBM program owners.
But don't take my word for the value of this special event. Listen to what other Business Partners have said about Impact Business Partner Development Day by listening to a podcast featuring Larry Warnock, President and CEO of Phurnace Software, and Jaimin Patel, Director of Marketing and Business Development at WebLayers, Inc.
