"We are excited to announce that in 2015, IBM Connect will transform into an even more in-depth technical event -- IBM ConnectED. This event targets our heritage Collaboration Solutions clients and partners, providing a look at the future -- as well as the "nuts and bolts" details that feedback shows is so important to our long-standing technical community.
IBM ConnectED 2015 will take place January 25-28, 2015 at the Walt Disney World Swan Resort in Orlando, Florida. This event is specifically designed for technologists of all levels -- including CIOs, IT managers and practitioners -- and offers deep-dive technical sessions, demos, labs and roundtables, access to IBM technical experts, and more.
This unique technical conference reaffirms IBM's commitment to our industry-leading solutions --- IBM Notes and Domino, the IBM Connections platform, and Digital Experience solutions -- equipping IT practitioners and technical leaders with the technical knowledge they need to maximize their investment with IBM. In line with the 2015 SWG event strategy, we will invite IBM Collaboration Solutions and Smarter Workforce clients in business roles to join us at both IBM-led and industry events that deliver content specific to the needs of line-of-business (LOB) roles -- more on this to come. IBM Collaboration Solutions will also have a large presence at Insight 2014 and InterConnect 2015.
In addition, our seventh annual Leadership Alliance event will be held on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at the Walt Disney World Swan hotel to coincide with IBM ConnectED. During this invitation-only, single day event, key clients and partners will engage in a two-way dialog with our leadership and product teams, preview and provide feedback on our product strategies and roadmaps, and take part in personalized roundtables and one on one interactions with the ICS leadership team and technical experts.
We are thrilled that early feedback from key clients and partners has been extremely enthusiastic. We will open registration and Call for Abstracts in mid-August, along with details regarding tracks and sessions. Please make sure your clients and partners save the date and check the ConnectED website, which will be updated as information becomes available."
I look forward to joining you there in January :-)
