While we are working hard on planning Social Connections 11 in Chicago we want to do a shout out to another great conference: IBM Connect in San Francisco!

The Social Connections team have four speakers at IBM Connect delivering 5 sessions, details below, so we’re pretty excited!

IBM Connect 2017 promises to be an interesting event. Firstly, it is in a new city and conference venue, the Moscone Centre, San Francisco, which guarantees something new and refreshing. Secondly, with new Watson based cognitive functionality within the IBM Collaborative solutions, there’s exciting new content for IT professionals, developers and business leaders giving a great opportunity to teach, learn and share how they will deliver a new way to work using IBM Watson and the other collaboration solutions from IBM.

We look forward to networking with all our friends and also learning from thought leaders, researchers, gurus, Business Partners and experts who are driving results and transforming organisations, both large and small, around the world.

 

With over 200 sessions being delivered over 3 days it’s going to be difficult to choose which season to attend when we’re not delivering our own. Nothing beats hearing real-world insights from industry-leading companies, learning about the technologies, APIs, platforms and services that boost your existing solutions, extend productivity and deliver new business results.

IBM promises these goodies:

  • Expand your horizons—explore the promise of emerging technologies like augmented reality, Internet of Things, Blockchain, AI and Watson.
  • Reimagine everyday work—learn how the solutions that are redefining work—Watson, Verse, Connections, Notes, Domino, Bluemix, Box and more—fuel productivity and collaboration.
  • Meet the experts—hear from experts on solutions that focus employees on work that matters by connecting the right people, information and processes.
  • Experience solutions first-hand—see the latest workplace technologies and research projects in the EXPO. Work with the products in labs. Discover new approaches to integrate and extend IBM solutions.

As discussed, we’re proud to have Social Connections team members contributing to IBM Connect. We look forward to welcoming you at one of  to our sessions!
