Global Elite Town Halls

The IBM Global Elite Program is fully committed to foster close, collaborative partnerships with our strategic clients. Our sole mission is to exceed your expectations in terms of service and partnership.

As part of that charter, last year we launched quarterly virtual Town Hall session, offered exclusively for our Global Elite clients.  You will receive updates on the analytics and cloud market,  gain insights into our vision and future product direction and hear from the Global Elite community.  Our virtual Town Halls are intended to foster an ongoing, interactive dialogue about how IBM Analytics and Cloud Integration can align and support your strategic cloud, data and analytics, and hybrid cloud integration initiatives.

This is an exclusive, invitation-only opportunity for our Global Elite clients. We look forward to engaging with you at our next Town Hall.
