InterConnect 2017

Republished from Thoughts on Cloud


Wayne Brady @ InterConnectAre you ready for the cloud event of the year? Get ready to meet cloud experts, problem-solvers and industry leaders you admire. Not to mention some very special guests—like TV star, improv legend and the next Aaron Burr in “Hamilton,” Wayne Brady.

IBM is gearing up for InterConnect 2017 in Las Vegas, where IBM will host 24,000 attendees who are using cloud and AI to leapfrog today’s experiences.

Think of it like this: imagine all of your favorite musicians will share the stage at the concert of the year. Are you really going to miss it? Would you rather read about it after it happens? Absolutely not. InterConnect is no different. You don’t want to just read about the client success stories, the insights and the cloud trends and technologies rapidly reshaping business. Join us, talk with the experts in your field and share your own cloud stories.
