Pulse 2012 is fast approaching, and this year we’ve evolved the conference to focus more on education, information exchange and interaction – which is what you’ve asked us to do. Pulse will feature IBM experts and industry leaders across three general sessions and over 400+ breakout sessions across our four streams - 75% of which are lead by your peers! Not to mention plenty of networking opportunities with your peers at the Executive Summit, Business Partner summit, and receptions.
Pulse provides a unique opportunity for you to learn more about the capabilities you need to transform IT economics and speed service delivery, including strategies and actions to help gain value from cloud computing, mobility, security, and smarter physical infrastructures. While on the surface these sound like buzz words, I’m certain that we have the depth and best practices for you to successfully implement these initiatives in your organization and tie them to real business outcomes.
In addition, within the Solution Expo we are introducing an Interoperability Center. We added the Center, based upon your feedback, to demonstrate IBM’s open platform for integrating service delivery across IBM, partner and third-party solutions. The demonstrations will be in the context of real business scenarios, including: cloud, smarter buildings, continuous development, and more.
Pulse is focused on achieving “Business without Limits”, and the curriculum and networking events are designed to provide you with the ideas, actions, and best practices to deliver on the three business imperatives:
- Better focus from technology investment on business outcomes
- Streamline execution to reduce unnecessary cost and risk
- React with speed and agility to shifting competitive landscapes
So on behalf of IBM and our Business Partners, I hope you accept the challenge to attend Pulse and take away actions to drive business impact for your organization. It’s a 3 day education and networking opportunity that you will not want to miss!
