Every year, about this time, the creative juices start to flow as we start to gear up for IBM Pulse. Which stream will have the most interesting success stories? Which industry will produce the most creative abstract for a client presentation? What will energize clients to participate at Pulse? Who will get their 5 mins of fame at Pulse? All good questions! Let's see if I can help to answer them.
For years the Enterprise Asset Management track has been one of the largest at Pulse. This year, under the Smarter Physical Infrastructure stream, EAM will have 84 sessions. New this year will be 24 sessions under the "Industry case studies" track, which will no doubt produce some interesting submissions. Last year we had an agricultural industry submission that drew rave reviews. Refer here to see the diversity of industries in Latin America that were covered......from the Brazilian Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock (CNA) story to Cristal Chile a bottle manufacturer .
Maximo Asset Management solutions have a broad industry presence and we hope that by having 24 sessions dedicated to industry case studies we will be able to touch as many industries as possible. Have you submitted your proposal yet? Click here to submit.
Another incentive that we created this year in order to solicit your creativity, is the 'If only I had Maximo" home video campaign. If you are anything like me, as I encounter the daily tasks of maintaining a household, I'm constantly wishing I had Maximo to help with the maintenance, upkeep and warranty records for my house. I mean who wouldn't want an automated work order generated directly to take care of all of the machinery around the house and implement preventive maintenance schedules?
Of course Maximo isn't for home use, but we created this campaign (click here) to see if we had any creative folks out there who were looking for 5 mins of fame at Pulse. We think that this will also be a good way to expand our social media presence and get the community more engaged. How many of you are following our blog ? Are you a member of our community? We continue to grow and are always posting the latest & greatest activities for Maximo.
Take a look at our latest video which I filmed on a local goat farm.........can you see the similarities to the CNA story?
I hope this has inspired you to create your own home video & submit it for your 5 mins of fame at Pulse. Reminder of the link.
And any other awesome firm that is willing to collaborate with IBM by showcasing your business and technology leadership at Pulse.
The benefits are simple, but long reaching. We estimate over 7000 people will pass through the Pulse Expo. And with them, limitless opportunities to progress and develop leads in an environment super charged with the brightest talent, sharpest skill and most focused energy in the industry. If you were there last year, you know what I am talking about and are probably already committed to a Pulse 2012 sponsorship.
Although half of the sponsorship opportunities are still available as of today, they are being scooped up faster than previous years. Friends, now is the time to lock in your Pulse 2012 Expo Sponsorship. Book before December 16 and save a hefty $5K, unless you are a Pulse 2011 Sponsor Alumnus, then you save $10K. These are going fast, and it's no wonder. Just don't say I didn't tell you about it.
