It's a beautiful day in Las Vegas. The sun is out, the breeze is cool, and IBM Pulse (#ibmpulse) is now in full swing. Lots of excitement and a packed agenda, but I thought that I'd take a moment to share a little insight into what to look for on today's agenda from a security perspective.
As most of you already know, today is all about Business Partners, and the security agenda kicks off at 1:45 pm in room 120. Steve Robinson, General Manager IBM Security Solutions, Rob Lamb, Vice President WW Sales and Clifford (Jay) Leary, Director WW Channels, will be hosting an insight session- IBM Security Solutions: Driving Revenue and Profits Selling.
Description: During 2010, IBM established a cross-brand, cross-company approach to security offerings by linking research, design, development, marketing and support to create the most complete and robust security portfolio in the IT industry. IBM Security Solutions allow your customers to address todays security challenges of cost, complexity and compliance. This session will include a discussion of IBMs security offering strategy and channel strategy, and provide you with examples of how Business Partners can increase revenue and profits leveraging IBMs offerings, support and incentive programs.
From 3:30pm - 5:15 pm there will be three different Business Partner Summit Breakout Sessions.
In room 109:
BigFix: Capitalize on Convergence: Leverage BigFix to Address the Market Convergence of Lifecycle Management and Security Configuration Management.
In room 120:
Security: Expanding your Security Practice with Tivoli ISS Offerings.
In room 115:
Security: Expanding your Security Practice with Heritage Tivoli Offerings
All of these sessions will be held twice during this time period, but you'll still have the difficult task of picking only two. Good luck!
A few other things to keep on your radar. The solution expo hall and welcome reception is at 6:30pm today and I hope to see many of you there. If you'd like to stop bye and say hello I'll be the IBMer in the blue suit and white shirt.
I'd also encourage everyone to use some of the different web assets that we have available. The Pulse Smart Site is a great place to build your agenda and get a sense of what's going on around the conference. Pulse Conversations is a tool that enables you to join the virtual dialogue using social media tools like blogging and Twitter. I look forward to talking with many of you over the next few days and you can find online me on Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn, and of course here, on the IBM Software Blog.
For a glimpse of what's ahead in the coming days, I'll include some of what we saw last year.
Enjoy the conference everyone!
