Over 2,400 IBM Business Partners gathered in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the two-day Business Partner Summit at Information On Demand, October 20-21. Over this two-day period, we saw the emergence of two key themes: first, delivering better business outcomes by helping clients make sense of data, and second, celebrating the success of our Business Partners.
The transformational power of data was highlighted during the Business Partner Summit General Session by two dynamic speakers: Ray Wang and Jeff Ma. For Wang, the focus was inspiring innovation. He encouraged Business Partners to think beyond incremental innovation, focusing on the power of data as a means to truly transform the client experience.
Following later, Ma highlighted the importance of making data driven decisions in business. Through his experience as a card counter, he emphasized the critical nature of separating the right business decision from the outcome -- warning that the decisions faced by clients today can be similar to those faced by black jack players -- we should persist in making the right decision based on probable outcomes, even if the results do not always go our way. Delaney Turner provides a great recap of his message on the IBM Software blog.
After exploring the opportunities that big data provides our clients, it was time to highlight the success of our Business Partners with the presentation of the Business Partner Awards. These awards recognize Business Partners who have delivered exceptional client experiences via Business Analytics, Predictive Analytics, Enterprise Content Management and Information Management software throughout the year. Congratulations to this year's winners!
