Think Atlanta: Putting Cloud and AI to Work

Share this post:

think-atlanta-2018 At IBM Think in Atlanta, you heard how leading enterprises are accelerating their digital transformation by putting data and AI to work on the cloud for smarter business. The agenda was packed with thought leaders, including Principal Analyst, Michael Facemire from Forrester, and other subject matter experts providing a wealth of information on hot topics, from cloud strategy, to becoming more client centric by optimizing digital experiences for your customers. 15-year-old AI prodigy, Tanmay Bakshi, shared the exciting outcomes he’s realized with IBM Cloud and AI, and you heard success stories from VMware and JB Hunt on how they are driving digital disruption in their industries using IBM Cloud and Blockchain.

You had the opportunity to network with peers in your industry, as well as IBM executives to gain unique insights for your business. Janine Sneed, VP of IBM Hybrid Cloud, shared the 4 steps to making your data ready for AI — applying machine learning everywhere, scaling your insights on demand, building a trusted analytics foundation, and making your data simple and accessible on IBM Cloud public and private cloud platforms. 

And finally, you saw a demonstration of how IBM Cloud Private for Data can accelerate your journey to AI, and help you become a data driven organization. 

We hope that the experience gave you the tools, and expertise you need to accelerate your digital transformation, and help you become the disruptor in your industry.
