Though it is more than a month, but still cannot resist myself to share my experience...
It was pleasure for me to participate in the "IBM Digital Experience Conference 2014 - Americas" in Anaheim, CA between 21st Jul - 24th Jul. The conference was was attended by approximately 1000 attendees that included Organization Executives (C-suite/CHRO) and IT professionals, Line of Business Executives, Business Analysts, Marketing & Sales Professionals, Digital Experience Professionals, IBM Business Partners & IT decision makers with full of insights on how to deliver customer-centered sales, service and support multi-channel digital experiences through use of technology and strategies in the areas of Social, Mobile, Cloud, Smarter Workforce, Commerce, Enterprise Market Management services, and more.
As tons of knowledge were shared across with over 125+ session tracks and 15+ hands-on labs, TCS presented a topic session on "Portal Farm Topology (Instance Cloning) on Public Cloud" under 'Best Practices' track mentioning about our journey towards implementing IBM WebSphere Portal on Cloud for a leading telecom customer in India.
It was also pleasure to meet some of key leaders in person; like Stephan Powers (Vice President & Research Director, @ Forrester), Robert Will (IBM Chief Architect, IBM WebSphere Portal & WCM @ IBM Labs US), Paul Kelsey (IBM WebSphere Portal & Cloud Architect @ IBM Labs), Lou Sassano & Jeff Seifert (Business Unit Executives Sales @ IBM SWG) and few of Customers to discuss on some potential aspects.
More importantly, the conference gave TCS a good platform to share its expertise in the areas of IBM WebSphere Portal & Cloud implementation. Meeting customers in person gave them a good confidence about TCS capabilities. Also, understanding of new market trends and IBM product offerings & roadmaps.
The conference has given TCS a great visibility in terms of ‘Thought Leadership’ in both Americas and Europe. Participating more in such events will take the level of TCS higher in the global market not only with respect to its practice & capabilities in Digital Experience and Social Collaboration technology but also help TCS grow with respect to recognition.
I am very eager to attend another version of “IBM Digital Experience Europe” coming up in October this year in Dusseldorf, Germany focusing Europe as geography.
