Here's a great opportunity for you to help influence IBM product and offering directions...
The 2011 IBM Technology Trends Survey is now live and there is a drawing for a $20 gift certificate for those who participate! (IBMers and employees of government owned entities are ineligible to receive the giveaway). The survey ends July 29th, so don't miss out on this chance to share your ideas.
What is the survey?
In the 2010 IBM Tech Trends Survey, more than 50% of the respondents told us mobile application development will overtake other types of development by 2015. And nearly 70% felt cloud computing will become the primary way organizations will acquire IT in the next five years.
The survey garnered press coverage across the globe, allowing IBM to highlight its offerings for the top trends identified. The PR success of the 2010 survey has prompted us to make this an annual survey and expand the subjects we can cover.
For 2011, we set out to go deeper with the 2011 IBM Tech Trends Survey. The survey was crafted by collaboration with close to 20 product and strategy teams. The results will have direct impact on business directions and strategies in IBM. We will reveal the motivators that drive these trends, identify adoption challenges and concerns, and explore other growth areas such as social business and business analytics.
What can you do to help?
- Help promote the survey. Blog, tweet, and otherwise promote the link within your networks.
- Take the survey yourself. Help shape the future of our products and offerings!
