As market conditions and business requirements are constantly changing, IBM Sales Performance Management (SPM) continues to lead the industry with adaptive, scalable tools that are designed to drive efficient, agile solutions for your enterprise sales teams. Due to this ever-changing landscape, it’s vital as an SPM professional to stay current on best practices, industry trends, and learn new practical use cases that are in use today. With that in mind, IBM is looking forward to hosting the upcoming IBM Sales Performance Management Summit, being held on October 16th and 17th in New York City. Registration and a full agenda can be found here.

This no charge, two day event gives approved guests* the opportunity to learn how organizations can improve sales performance and operational efficiencies with better management of compensation plans, smarter administration of sales territories and quotas, and implementing and leveraging the use of advanced analytics. As IBM was named for the fifth year in a row among the leaders in SPM for its “strong vision and ability to meet enterprise needs” by the Gartner Magic Quadrant, there will be no shortage of industry experts to learn from and network with.

Also in addition to IBM and IBM Business Partners, a number of customers, clients, and industry experts will be in attendance to share their insights on where the industry is headed.
