You have probably heard all the standard reasons why you should attend a conference: to increase knowledge, to hear about the latest trends, to network with likeminded professionals. However, one of the most compelling aspects of a conference, for me, is the opportunity to hear real stories from clients about how technology solutions are changing how they do business. Stories bring to life the many ways that social, mobile, cloud and digital experiences are driving strategic transformation today.

In a few weeks, at Connect 2016, attendees will have a chance to hear from finance, insurance, healthcare, utilities, retail and other industry leaders about how digital technologies are improving collaboration and productivity for customers and employees—getting users the information they need, when they need it, in surprising new ways.

For example, Primerica and IBM Business Partner PointSource will be sharing how they ensure the success of their sales representatives by delivering the right content at the right time using an IBM Digital Experience solution. Memorial Hermann Healthcare System will present how they replaced a complex and inflexible intranet with a new solution that provides secure mobile and role-based experience, eliminating staff frustration and building in collaborative transparency. Europe’s biggest train manufacturer, HCL Technologies, will describe how they streamlined their operations with a self-service portal in 11 different languages. These client stories (and many more)—alongside numerous educational sessions, special events, and the solution EXPO featuring outstanding information from our business partners—will provide inspiration and incentive to boost your organization’s digital transformation.

You will learn about creating exceptional digital experiences for your employees that will help your organization:
Focus on work that matters. Productivity tools can help users and teams make the best use of their time to get the important work done efficiently.
Streamline teamwork. Collaboration tools make communication and team projects more effective and nimble.
Tailor experiences for customers and employees. Capabilities that help companies customize their applications and tools are bringing ecosystem-level change to how businesses work.

Whether we’re talking about individuals, teams or entire ecosystems, personalization is the catchword in digital experience today. Social and digital interactions have become a central part of daily life, and users are becoming ever-more demanding. As numerous apps and digital media channels compete for our attention, organizations that want to stand out from the crowd must create engaging, content-rich, personalized interactions.

I cannot wait to hear what other companies have been able to achieve using the latest tools for digital transformation. If you have not registered already, please join me at Connect 2016 and learn for yourself. Be sure to register today.
