5 Reasons to think about IBM Think!

In a first-of-its-kind event, IBM Think is combining all prior events that you may be familiar with (i.e. Pulse, InterConnect, WoW, Edge etc.) into one incredible event from March 19-22. With more than 40,000 industry leaders expected in a unique campus setting, it’s one of the best events to learn, innovate, connect and have some fun! It also happens to be a huge event for Maximo and Tririga. So, who is joining us to think? Here are 5 reasons why we think you should…

1) Real Maximo Stories

Whatever new challenges and innovations you want to take on this year, Maximo Users and Partners are ready to share their Asset Management experiences with you. With 15 breakout sessions, you’ll hear 45 min stories from energy and utilities clients such as Cenovus Energy and Diamond Offshore, and transportation clients including Cummins and Schipol.

2) The Campus Floor

With a new Campus built around reimagining business in the era of IoT and AI, you will feel part of the Think community. With exhibitors, theatre sessions, demos and food all contained on campus, you can focus on learning and connecting with the right Maximo/Tririga experts. And we can’t wait to share our capability and expertise with you! BPD will be joining IBM on their Enterprise Asset Management stand, so there will be lots of time for networking and interaction.

3) NetworkingGS-GL Interconnect 2015

With 40,000 attendees, there is no shortage of peers and technical professionals from around the world to meet and greet. This includes Business Partners, clients, distinguished guests, brand evangelists, and (of course) IBM executives such as Ginni Rometty and the new IoT General Manager, Kareem Yusef.  Having everyone under the same roof is one heck of a business opportunity!

4) EAM Education

With the IBM Maximo track put together by Kim Woodbury, there’s bound to be great content around EAM and the future of Maximo. We love hearing all the latest and greatest product capability straight from the horse’s mouth!
There are also free certification opportunities and hands-on labs which helps keep our Maximo experts current. Why not build a tailored curriculum with the help of IBM Watson to ensure you use your time effectively.
