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:

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.

In response to: If you’re an IBM Tivoli Business Partner why attend Pulse?Lisa, welcome to the blogging team. Great post on the Tivoli Pulse Business Partner Summit. I'm posting this to our Pulse blog too so others can find it.

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.

I was seriously bummed this morning when Al Zollar announced that Michael Phelps would not be speaking at the Pulse conference. Al explained that another exciting keynote speaker was on the agenda for later, but wouldn’t tell us who it was. The Twitter crowd immediately started speculating who it would be--Chris Rock?
And a series of Pulse speakers proceeded to joke about the possibility of Al speaking in a Speedo as a Phelps replacement. With the anticipation building, it was hard to focus when Jim Logsdon, from Alcatel-Lucent (Diamond sponsor of Pulse), spoke about his long-term partnership with IBM.
Chris O’Connor’s discussion on why being Green is important was fascinating. He highlighted four key reasons to focus on energy and efficiency: money, risk, compliance, responsibility. He basically argued that we need to reduce wasting energy in the data center and use the cost savings to invest in better tools to save money, comply with regulations, avoid severe punishment, and act responsibly as world citizens. He definitely caught our attention—and it wasn’t just due to the totally cool green tie he was wearing. Chris used some simple math to show that we could save $750/year just on better managing two servers and $750K/year if we were dealing with a 1000 servers. The Twitter crowd really enjoyed his presentation.
Finally, the moment had arrived. We were all awaiting with excitement to hear who the new Pulse keynote speaker was for that morning. The crowd showed their excitement when Al announced it was Magic Johnson!
Magic Johnson came off as a darling to the crowd. He was very intelligent and personable—walking amongst the Pulse attendees, asking them to stand up, giving them long hugs, speaking and engaging with them directly, and encouraging personal photo opportunities. And his talk was both humorous and informative. Demonstrating a strong business acumen and industriousness, he spoke of his foundation and the unique perspective he brought to incorporating ethnic and urban consumer tastes to coffee shops, movie theatres, fitness centers, and real estate projects. He also encouraged the audience to stay positive and embrace a winning spirit in the face of current economic challenges. He was met with a standing ovation! Once again, the Twitter crowd went wild!
Thanks to IBM and to Magic Johnson! What a great treat and surprise!
