Are you ready to compete in the era of smart?
Next week sees 8,500 of the most influential CIOs and IT professionals from around the world converge on the Swan and Dolphin hotel in Orlando for the 2013 edition of Gartner Symposium ITxpo. IBM is once again a Premier Sponsor, with senior IBM Software executives on-hand to present the latest innovations and provide their insights into the industry's most important trends. Here's a sampling of what you'll hear:
On Cloud: Cloud computing has changed the way we think about technology. It already offers new economics in IT, service delivery without boundaries, and stronger customer relationships. Now see how IBM SmartCloud® can keep your business in line with current demands.
On Big Data & Analytics: Data is on the rise. And any organization that mines this growing resource with analytics can outperform the competition. Moreover, with Smarter Analytics from IBM, you can turn information into insight, make better decisions faster, and enact changes to maintain your competitive edge.
On Mobile Enterprise: Mobile devices are facilitating greater interactions with employees, customers and partners, driving intelligent decisions and actions as a result. But they can also create management and security issues. Find out how IBM mobile services can guarantee secure performance.
On Social Business: Social is the next big movement in business. An interconnected and instrumented world has permanently altered the way people work, interact and make decisions. It’s also shifted more power from the organization to the customer. Find out how you can capitalize on this evolving landscape.
We'll also be on-hand to discuss Smarter Leadership. As software moves ever closer to the forefront of business process, so too, does the CIO move closer to office of the CEO: By aligning IT with business objectives, forward-thinking decision-makers are building an innovation capability to support revenue-gaining initiatives.
The centerpiece of the IBM presence at Gartner Symposium will be a presentation by Steve Mills, SVP and Group Executive, IBM Software and Systems. It's called Cost-Effective IT Strategies to Lead in a Digital World." I've seen an early draft of the presentation and while I can't give away the details, I can share with you the five key points Mills will be conveying. Here they are:
I'll be reporting on Mills' presentation and on the topics above starting next Monday. You can follow my dispatches on Twitter, follow other IBM Software activity via IBM SmarterLeaders and #Suite411 and follow all the social activity from the conference via #GartnerSYM.
