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:
United States Army Veteran,
Best Selling Author,
Grammy Award Winner,
Academy Award Winner,
and 45th Vice President of the United States,
Al Gore, Cooler Planet Crusader in Chief.
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.
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:
Deliver superior business and IT services with agility and speed
Address today’s security, resiliency, and compliance challenges
Achieve breakthrough productivity gains through virtualization, optimization, energy stewardship, and flexible sourcing
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.
