T-minus eight hours before I'm off to the Mandalay Bay, so I'll make this one short and sweet.
One thing to watch
We've just released a new video called 'From Information to Analytics: The IBM Story.' It outlines our history of helping you wrangle and make sense of your increasingly messy data and features most of the IBM Software Executives you'll see on-stage next week.
Two things to read
The first our research report, 'Analytics: The new path to value' produced by our Institute for Business Value in partnership with the MIT Sloan Management Review. Its findings propose solutions to the different pieces of your information-and-analytics value puzzle, based on surveys of nearly 3,000 executives, managers and analysts working across more than 30 industries and 100 countries.
The second is the brand-new McKinsey piece, 'Competing through data: Three experts offer their game plans.' Here,an MIT professor, a business executive and the coach of the men's basketball team at Butler University reflect on the power of data to drive better outcomes.
Three things to pack
Believe it or not, I always need to remind myself of these every time I go somewhere:
Speaking of sharing, I'll be spending a lot of time between sessions in our 'Share' and 'Connect' social spaces and would love to meet you if you have the time.
If you're heading down, safe travels to all, and I'll see you in the twitter stream (remember to use #iod11 or #ibmsoftware).
