Connecting @ IBM Connect 2012
It was on this day in 1845 that Texas officially became the 28th state in the United States of America.
Happy Birthday, Texas.
But, Texas is NOT where I’ll be in a short couple of weeks.
No, instead, I’ll be visiting the 27th state admitted to the United States of America.
Any guesses on what the 27th state was?
That’s right, Sunny Florida!
Lotusphere, to be more precise.
And IBM Connect @ Lotusphere, to be perfectly precise.
I’ll be making my third return trip to Lotusphere, and I couldn’t be more excited. Though I’ll be leaving Scott Laningham behind to cover the podcasting front remotely, I’ll be there in full regalia, and attending a number of the IBM Connect sessions.
If you’ve not heard of IBM Connect, think of it as a conference-within-a-conference for those forward-thinking business leaders who want to learn how to turn the opportunity that comes from becoming a social business into measurable business success.
At IBM Connect, C-level executives and business leaders from a wide range of disciplines — product development, R&D, marketing, sales, customer service, HR, corporate communications, and IT — and from a diversity of organizations around the globe will come together to discuss the why, what, and how of using social, mobile, and cloud technologies to meet their business challenges and to enable people to improve their business performance.
I’ve included a snapshot of the sessions from Day 1 of IBM Connect (see above), but in the meantime, you can go here to learn more about the event and to register.
Leading up to and during the event, stay turned to the Turbo blog for full coverage and highlights from both Lotusphere and IBM Connect 2012.
