Welcome to IBM Connect 2013
IBM Connect 2013. Familiar, yet with a whole new twist. What many of you have looked forward to for the past nineteen years and what many of you will look forward to for at least the next nineteen—Lotusphere with a new name that reflects the broader story of IBM's market leadership in the social business arena.
Social technologies are helping people connect, communicate, and share information. Business leaders and technical professionals around the world realize the profound impact this continues to have on how businesses operate. Forward thinkers are focused on harnessing the value of this impact. Many are looking inward toward building a more effective workforce, while an equal number are looking outward toward delivering exceptional customer experiences.
Whichever your focus, if your eye is trained on transforming the way you do business, on the need to ensure you and your company are on the right path to tap into the power of social business, and on achieving maximum value and competitive advantage from your social business investments, then IBM Connect is your 'must attend' event to kick off 2013.
While we'll still provide extensive technical content on collaboration solutions, we'll take a more expansive approach and focus on the value that IBM and business leaders have placed on social collaboration, portal, web experiences, content management, analytics, process management, commerce, and supporting professional service as top priorities and key competitive differentiators.
