The Impact 2013 technology program provides more than 500 sessions you can choose from that give you the opportunity to develop new skills and find solutions to the IT challenges within your enterprise. The sessions take shape as lectures, hands-on labs, expert panels, customer stories, real-world implementation talks, and the ever-popular Developer Unconference.

The cloud computing sessions at the conference focus on IBM®'s SmartCloud® and cloud product offerings, exploring how clients can successfully re-imagine their operations and processes in order to boost their ability to compete to a level of peak performance.

A key theme at Impact 2013 focuses on the integration of trending technologies — such as cloud, mobile, social, big data, analytics, intelligent security — with existing commercial operations and processes in order to get the most out of IT resources.

This guide provides links to existing developerWorks resources for IBM products that support the Impact 2013 technology tracks so you can expand the solution knowledge you earn at the conference. Or, you can follow this trail backwards and dive into the developerWorks resources first, then track down the individual conference sessions that correspond to your interests later.
