What is a Global Elite Academy event ?

As a member of the Global Elite Program, one of the premier events that your company will benefit from is an Global Elite Academy (GEA).  This event is a fully customized learning event that is aligned with your company's business strategy, IBM technology investments and industry trends.  Global Elite client members can choose between a 1-day or 2-day event with multiple tracks suited to your lines of business.  Technology education sessions will be delivered by IBM experts in their field delivered locally at your company location, at an IBM site or a 3rd party venue.

Innovation Monday

Join us monthly for IBM Hybrid Cloud Innovation Mondays! You asked and we listened.  We’ve heard your requests for better insight into product development roadmaps, including our latest innovations and the opportunity to get early access to new technology.

That’s why we’re launching the IBM Hybrid Cloud Innovation Monday series – to keep you abreast on the investments we’re making, new offerings that are being released and the various ways that you can get involved.

Each live webinar will delve into the new capabilities that we released in earlier in 2018, including IBM Cloud Private for Data, and we will give you a sneak peak into what’s in store later this year.

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.
