Gain confidence with Cloud Technical Engagement

Share this post:

Adopting and thriving on cloud will make or break many industries.

Using cloud to transform business is this generation’s professional challenge, but digital transformation doesn’t have to be confusing or daunting. Whether you are just learning about the business value of cloud, or you’re in the middle of your own transformation, there’s room to learn and gain confidence in the next step.

There are plenty of opportunities to learn more about cloud at InterConnect 2017, and Cloud Technical Engagement offers proven, technical expertise for turning cloud strategies into reality.

Planning the path ahead and getting cloud architectures and workloads right can be challenging. A common question is, “How can I achieve my business goals and leapfrog my competition while meeting security, networking and other requirements?”

My team and I hear these concerns in the hallways of the companies we work with, from cloud-native startups to Fortune 100 companies. The Cloud Technical Engagement team at IBM Cloud turns challenges into opportunities, ensuring that the companies and teams with whom we collaborate leave each engagement knowledgeable and confident in their next steps.

This year, the Cloud Technical Engagement team is bringing lessons learned from countless engagements and successes to InterConnect. With a 4,000 square-foot Cloud Confidence Center, more than 100 breakout sessions (with a third of them featuring a specific client success story), more than 100 technical hands-on labs, a full slate of cloud certification exams and a staff of 300-plus experts, my team is ready to help attendees adopt cloud and achieve its maximum value quickly.

See for yourself

The Cloud Confidence Center, at booth #535, is one of the largest areas in the entire concourse. It’s where attendees can come to ask questions and discuss plans about cloud and get answers from experts. From understanding to adopting, all the way getting support, the team has a solution. Start a conversation with cloud adoption leaders, technical experts tasked with spearheading complex cloud adoption scenarios, who will come to understand your individual challenges and provide personalized recommendations based on your cloud journey.

Tell us your cloud story, we’ll help you gain confidence in your next step and begin implementing a winning cloud strategy.

Attendees can also talk with technical leaders from the IBM Bluemix Garage and Cloud Professional Services, who can describe how to quickly transform like a startup or craft and implement winning strategies on cloud. Discuss the latest technologies and trends in cloud or see tried and proven implementation patterns in action with the solution architecture team. Learn how support programs are ready to help you succeed with cloud every step of the way.

Breakout sessions, labs, certifications, and more

If speaking with experts on the concourse floor is not for you, drop by one of the breakout sessions or labs. Nearly all our experts attending InterConnect will be presenting in a session, leading a boot camp, facilitating a hands-on lab or proctoring certification exams. You are bound to come across one of our experts, whether you know it or not.
