You're a Rational Business Partner. You understand systems and software delivery. You know the value of Rational's Innovate conference. You've also come to learn that key trends - Cloud, Mobile, Social, Big Data, Smarter products, Agility, and Analytics - are revolutionizing system and software delivery across the DevOps life cycle, not to mention your careers.
Your business lives or dies on software. Your world demands faster cycles of innovation.
What you need to do, what you must do, is STAY AHEAD.
IBM Innovate 2013 is staying ahead with its evolution into the new IBM Technical Summit. THE event for technical leaders to get hands-on and heads-down with the insight to stay ahead. Innovate is an intense week of community sharing, learning, and networking.
Who better to kick off our first Technical Summit than the practitioner’s practitioner, Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, who will provide game changing market trends, what's coming, and how to beat your competition to help you learn how you can stay ahead of the trends and your competition. Eric Ries, best-selling author of The Lean Startup, and Katie Linendoll, TV producer and tech host, also take center stage.
Our general sessions will be short, hard-hitting, and provocative. Our 450 technical sessions will cover seven key technology trends: Cloud, Mobile, Social, Big Data, Smarter products, Agility, and Analytics. These trends are revolutionizing systems and software delivery across the DevOps life cycle. You can dive deep into IBM’s position on each of these trends by accessing new technical papers even before innovate. Take a look at the Innovate content and share with your clients and other IBM Business Partners! Use the session preview tool to identify and save sessions you are interested in.
We are also offering additional training options for Scrum teams. Take advantage of two great training opportunities at Innovate 2013 -- a two-day ScrumMaster ® Certification Course and Rational Team Concert for Scrum Teams and Agile Processes training at Innovate 2013.
