The beginning of the year is a time to stop and reflect, and a moment at which we often reasses business priorities. With that in mind, we interviewed a number of IBM Business Partners to ask them what key challenges they plan to tackle in 2013.
If you're planning on tackling similar challenges this year, one of the best places to locate helpful resources is the IBM Software Business Partner Kickoff
virtual event, coming up on 28 January 2013. Some of the hot topics that's well cover include increasing your marketing expertise, making sure employees have the right training, teaming more closely with IBM sales, leveraging IBM's technical strenghth and taking advantage of recent IBM acquisitions. You can check out the agenda in our detailed event guide
If you can't join us on the 28th, I highly recommend registering anyway. Although you'll miss out on the opportunity to live chat with IBM executives and other product and program experts, you'll still have an opportunity to watch many of the sessions on replay. This event is your chance to gain a thorough understanding of IBM's software channel priorities for 2013, and to understand how you can leverage your IBM relationship to help tackle your biggest challenges for 2013.
I'll be there -- hope you will join us!
