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.

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?
