Though the year is drawing to a close, planning is well underway for Pulse 2011, IBM's Integrated Service Management event. Here's an overview of everything IBM Business Partners need to know about Pulse right now:
The early bird special has ended, so hopefully, many of you have already registered. However, there is still plenty of time to register
for this event at the standard rate; just be sure to register before February 24, 2011 in order to avoid late registration fees.
There are many reasons for partners to sponsor at Pulse, including increased visibility for your company, a chance to showcase your innovative solutions, and opportunities to network with peers, clients and potential prospects. There are a variety of packages available at every price point. More information is available on the Pulse 2011 sponsorship page
, or partners can contact Bob Melton at firstname.lastname@example.org
IBM Tivoli Business Partner Summit
This year's Business Partner Summit will take place on Sunday, February 27, 2011.

Topics for the summit sessions have already been announced, so you can take a look at the agenda
