Share this post:

IBM World of Watson 2016 is the ultimate data and analytics conference. Celebrating the rise of cognitive computing, it showcases how new technical approaches are changing the way people and machines work together.

Throughout the week, you’ll have opportunities to network with 20,000 peers and experts, gain valuable skills from more than 200 hands-on labs and attend 1,500+ breakout sessions. It’s going to be big.

If you’re interested in DevOps, World of Watson offers a wealth of learning and hands-on opportunities. Once the domain of startups, DevOps is being embraced in the C-suite at large organizations  to transform the way they do digital business innovation. A DevOps approach helps teams deliver quality applications faster and better aligned to customer needs.
