A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Impact Comes to You event in New York. My mission? Attend the sessions and network with the assembled WebSphere professionals to put faces to the names I see regularly on the Global WebSphere Community (GWC). Meeting with the leaders of our three New York area user groups was a definite highlight, but I was riveted by the presentation, "IBM MobileFirst Platform: Develop and Integrate Mobile Apps to Drive ROI," that was given by Steve Mirman, IBM Mobile Expert and part of the "WebSphere & Mobility SWAT Team."
In addition to giving us a clear picture on how to use IBM Worklight to create and test mobile applications, Steve talked about how IBM Tealeaf provides developers with the tools to capture, analyze and replay the details of a customer's use of a mobile app to find any issues and provide actionable intelligence to make swift updates and improve the overall customer experience. But before he spoke to the general audience, Steve came by the GWC table to say hello. It turns out that in addition to working with the GWC on webcasts and local group meetings, he's also a long-standing member.
If you attended the ICTY in New York, I know I'm preaching to the choir, but I did want you to know you can join our three user groups in your area to attend one of our WUG meetings where you'll hear presentations IBM and independent subject matter experts. The groups are:
Not in New York? Search for a group here.
Finally, there's another Impact Comes To You event in Washington, DC on October 16th.
Thanks again to the folks running IBM Impact for a tremendous experience and we hope to see you all on the GWC.
