Getting Ready for IMPACT...

It’s just over two weeks to go until we open the doors to our IMPACT 2014 conference at The Venetian in Las Vegas: April 27 - May 1.
It’s promising to be a great week - there’ll be the chance to spend time with industry experts on topics such as mobile, cloud and integration, hundreds of great technical sessions, and of course some headline names such as Imagine Dragons and Kevin Spacey.
I’ve attended IMPACT every year since its inception; my heritage goes back to the Transaction and Messaging conference days, and in that time I’ve seen these conferences grow in size significantly. It’s always a hugely busy conference but one of my favourite weeks of the year, and it’s great to get the chance to meet with the users of our products and to be able to share thoughts and best practices.
This year I’m one of the track leads, responsible for the Enterprise and Cloud Integration content, covering products such as IBM Integration Bus. This has involved poring through the hundreds of submissions we receive and selecting a set of good, relevant content that I hope our audiences will find interesting.
I hope the result will be worth it, and if you’re able to come this year let me know what you think of the content. Remember to fill in your evaluation questionnaires and include any feedback, good and bad… Also feel free to feed back to me directly, through Twitter (@mqmatt), email (email@example.com), or come and find me at the conference. I’m hosting a couple of sessions on IBM Integration Bus, but also you might see me or any of my team wandering around the conference - come and say hi!
Finally, I thought I’d list some of the IBM Integration Bus sessions that we’re featuring this year. It’s not a complete list by any stretch, but hopefully enough to whet your appetite!
