IBM Named Worldwide Marketshare Leader in Social Software for Third Consecutive Year

IBM Mid-Market Partner Summit - Some Thoughts #getsocial11 #lotusknows #ibmsoftware #lotuseducation #in
   

Another year and another IBM Business Partner Summit for the Mid-Atlantic geography. Once again Kathy Banavitch did an excellent job coordinating and connecting Partners and IBMers in a social event to learn about IBM direction for both software and hardware sides of big blue (SWG and STG respectively).  At a high level, it was a captivating audience of Partners mainly from the STG side of the fence.  Business Analytics, Storage, and Power systems were well represented.  For us IBM Lotus Collaboration and Social Partners, we were a small but proud bunch that had a heavy ear towards the breakout sessions for software acquisitions.  Unbelievably, the three acquisitions mentioned for Lotus were from 2008, 2009, and I think, 2010.  It was clear to me that Lotus was not a focal point for this particular event.  LotusLive made a cameo appearance and with the usual IBM flare, was presented with well over a dozen license offerings! Over the top you think?

Personally, I reconnected with Wyman Winbush from STG.  Wyman is a motivational speaker on personal branding, growth strategy, and leadership.  He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to IBM’s STG and it’s no wonder why he’s been so successful. From distribution, Jenni Macinnes from Avnet was at the meeting and I had a great time talking about driving business and creating opportunities based on how Avnet sees the market in today’s economy.  We’re moving forward.

All in all, the event was a great networking experience. IBM has a strong team and aggressive growth strategies.  The question is for us Partners, “where are you going to put your chips on the board?”

So I am going to take 2 minutes for the first, one minute for the second, and 30 seconds for the third. 1 Welcome To The Postnormal [read] Keywords: notes
