Share this post:

It’s the last day of Think 2018. We hope you’ve enjoyed our daily highlights and recommendations for the Cloud & Data Campus. It truly has been the biggest and best IBM event of the year. We’ve heard from technical experts, business leaders and industry peers through hundreds of training sessions, hands-on demos and networking events.

But it’s not over yet, so rather than looking back, let’s take a look at what’s in store for your final day at Think 2018.

Thursday, 22 March

  • 8:30 AM – 2 PM PT: “Blockchain Disruptive Technology Showcase” — This conceptual, story-driven experience will show you to how IBM Blockchain can work for your business. This is also your last day to see any of the other exciting activations at Think 2018. The event will close at 2:00 PM. Location: Cloud and Data Campus or read this post if you can’t make it in person.
  • 8:30 AM – 2 PM PT: This is also the last day to check out the DevZone. In particular, make time to play Star Trek: Bridge Crew game in VR and experience Watson S2T service live at game speed. Bridge Crew puts you in the heart of a starship, where- as an officer of the Federation- every action and decision you make will determine the fate of your ship and crew. Developed specifically for VR and leveraging the power of IBM Watson’s speech-to-text and Conversation functionality, you get an inside look at the Star Trek universe. Stop by the DevZone and start using your voice to interact with virtual Starfleet crew members.  Location: The DevZone or learn more here.
  • 8:30 AM PT: “DevOps Transformation to Win in the Market” — This can be an exciting but perilous time for our businesses. Those delivering software innovation quickly can better engage their customers and win in the market. Meanwhile, those that fail to deliver quality or have significant outages can lose millions in a few hours. In the face of these realities, we are changing the way IT works. Learn how IBM clients are using IBM DevOps solutions, best practices and services to beat their competition to market and improve product quality and team productivity. Location: Cloud and Data Campus Theater A or watch live here.
  • 10:30 AM PT: “Combine SAP and AI on the IBM Cloud to Gain a Competitive Advantage” — Every organization wants an edge, whether that’s getting to market first, delivering exceptional customer experience or creating unique operating efficiency. We will cover IBM SAP consulting, migration and managed services on the IBM Cloud: designed for your data, AI ready and secure to the core. Location: Cloud and Data Campus Theater A or watch live here.

As you can see, there’s another great day in store for you at the Cloud & Data Campus. Data professionals, don’t miss our analytics colleagues’ additional recommendations for Thursday.

Now go out and enjoy your final day of Think 2018.
