How can I maximize use of my existing infrastructure to give new benefits to my customers?
What is the advantage of business service management?
What do you want to get out of your maintenance management system?
What's the value of this data to the organization?
How much work are those servers actually doing?
What if the customer is part of the process?
How do you continue to provide great technology tools and still stay within a budget that is reasonable?

So. We picked a guest speaker for Pulse, one of IBM’s flagship conferences. And this time it’s not a sports hero. This time we picked someone more renowned for his serious passion to save the world. For real. Our dude is busting his rump to save us from the fire and brimstone we’ll be swimming in when all the glaciers melt. And since we here at IBM have been talking the talk of building a smarter planet, I’m thinking our choice makes a lot of sense. Because the world wouldn’t be so smart if we all got dead. There’d be all these data centers floating about aimlessly. Just saying.
Ladies and Gentleman of the blogosphere, please put your fingertips on your keyboard and prepare to tell the rest of the interwebs that we are honored to host:
But if says he’s building an arc, I’m still not buying stock in the big box home improvement center that’s breeding grackles in its 40 acre parking lot. They’re chasing away all the song birds. I’m just saying.

Today, Pulse goes virtual.
Did you see the announcement?
In February, Pulse 2009 became the first global event dedicated to building a smarter planet through a dynamic infrastructure.
-->Watch highlights from Pulse 2009
Then IBM took the Pulse conference on the road to more countries with Pulse Comes to You.
-->See Pulse Comes to You video
Yup, that's me with my favorite IBM bee.
Now Pulse is going virtual with live Webcasts and chats with industry experts and IBM innovators today.
The pretty brochure will tell you the event is for you to:
Normal language please?
My translation: the event will focus on latest trends and innovations for helping folks manage their Infrastructure better. The key focus is on responding quickly to change, managing assets, and delivering quality service.
Virtual attendees can exchange electronic business cards and attend six different solution booths to grab collateral, watch customer videos and demos, and chat about solutions for better managing their assets and infrastructure.

12:15 PM: Chat with the Experts
12:45 PM: Datacenter Automation in an Uncertain Economy

04:15 PM: Chat with the Experts

One of the hopping places at Pulse for the last two years has been the Pulse Client Hospitality Lounge. Conference attendees hang out there to relax between sessions, sink into one of the comfortable sofas, and grab a snack or cold beverage while checking messages or networking with colleagues. The Lounge is one way of IBM saying "Thank You" for being a part of our community. When clients sign up to be a reference, update their current solution information, or join a user community group, they received a free gift.
If you're planning on attending Pulse 2010, I encourage you to drop by the Client Hospitality and ask for details when you register at the conference. A bonus treat: You might just be able to "hang" with the two wonderful ladies below--Danyel Otteson (Tivoli User Communities) and Laura Wilkens (Tivoli Client Success Marketing).
-->See examples of other IBM client success stories
To participate in the IBM client reference program, contact your IBM representative, IBM Business Partner or e-mail IBM at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It has been gorgeous Friday here in sunny Austin, Texas at a nice 65-70 degrees. It’s only fair to give props when props are due, especially since I have used this blog to gritch about the oppressive heat last summer, which ended yesterday I think.
So! Onto the real reason I brought you here:
Did you know that you peeps only have like two weeks left to get your proposals in to present at Pulse? I know you all have an IBM story to tell. Maybe you don’t think anyone would want to hear it or maybe you are concerned that you don’t have time to prepare. Or maybe you just don’t think that there is good reason to bother.
Nonsense, I say to thee!
First of all, this offer isn’t just for high-ranking executives or big business partners. We also need the folks who actually hands-on run the stuff we sell your company. Does it work? Did it get you out of a fix? Did it prevent you from being in a fix? Did it save more money than it cost? That sort of thing.
Secondly, you don’t have to worry about this taking a bunch of your time. We’ll make it easy for you. This is not a test that you are going to be graded on. This is your story and it’s one you know so well, you’ve probably even told it at a cocktail party. And all you need to do right now is pick a category and draft a 150-word description of what you will talk about. Oh, and submit it at the Pulse website by November 2. That’s nothing! This blog is already 280 words. Here is an article that can help you get your proposal accepted.
And thirdly, do you realize what an opportunity this is? You will be immortalized!
Seriously, we promote the heck out of the good stuff people say at Pulse. Why on earth wouldn’t we? We might even interview you on camera (if you let us) and put you on our YouTube channel and Tweet, Facebook, and of course blog about you. Client presentations from Pulse are wildly popular. My colleagues ping me weekly with, “I need So-and-So’s presentation from Pulse 2009 for a meeting with [client, executive, press, you fill in the blank]!” We’ll make you famous (sort of).
Here are some more goodies for our speakies:
What are you waiting for? The deadline is November 2 and the clock is ticking!
