I'm sure you've heard about the big combined conference for the Information Management brand that is taking place this fall. If not, here are the facts about the conference:
IBM Information On Demand 2006 (http://www.ibm.com/software/data/ondemandbusiness/conf2006/), October 15-20th, 2006, Anaheim, CA IBM Information Management is hosting its first-ever global conference this year, IBM Information On Demand 2006, for business and IT executives, managers, professionals, database administrators and developers.
One event, more value IBM Information On Demand 2006 incorporates six previous Information Management conferences:IBM DB2® Information Management Technical Conference; IBM Content Management Technical Conference; Business Intelligence Customer Solutions Summit; IMS Technical Conference; Master Data Management Conference; and Information Integration Live!
By combining individual conferences into one global event, you gain access and exposure to the full breadth of IBM Information Management technologies and experts. More IBM technical and business solutions content will be in one place than ever before! Select from over 800 sessions: a 2 1/2 day business leadership track with 180 sessions and a 4 1/2 day technical track with 650 sessions.
I've just been informed that I am able to attend the conference. I'll have to find a few sessions that I'd like to attend, but my primary goal of the week will be to run a few round table discussions. There will be one about skills and another specifically for publishing. I've also been asked to help coordinate the author signings that we have set up. I've also arranged for a great giveaway at the keynote session. I may stop by to see if the certification team needs help with the exams, or maybe I'll take one or more of the new V9 exams that will be launched at the conference, and available free of charge.
Let me know if you are going and what you are most looking forward to.
