I'm excited about our Birds of a Feather Session at Innovate in Orlando this year. The title in case you're looking for it in the Agenda Builder is - BOF-1770 Engineers can be social - A look at Collaboration without traditional boundaries.

In the spirit of collaboration without traditional boundaries, I'd like to start our BOF session now - If you are interested in this topic, we'd love to hear your thoughts ... even if you're not going to be in Orlando on June 4th at 12:45PM in the Dolphin - Oceanic 1 - see how I'm trying to collaborate without regard for those traditional boundaries.

In March, Gina Poole, our VP of WW Marketing, announced the 2012 IBM Champions for Rational software. At Innovate, we're honoring them in style:
Awards and presentations are great, but true to reasons for being named "champions", they love to show off what they know about Rational software and solutions. 13 of them will be at Innovate, while 5 more will be attending Innovate and user group events in their regions later this year. Learn more from their community bio page about where you can meet champions and how to connect with them throughout the year.
All of their exhibit booth numbers and session numbers are in that page. Use the agenda builder to add them to your schedule. You can also keep track of your schedule through the mobile app: Search "IBM Innovate 2012" in the App Store (iOS), Google Play (Android), or AppWorld (Blackberry). Bonus!!

At Innovate 2012 I attended a really interesting session on the (then upcoming) SAP Connector 4.0 release.
Given that this integration is built using OSLC, it made perfect sense to approach the speaker about delivering something similar for the OSLC community.
It is then wonderful news that we've (finally!) booked this presentation for 24 July at 12 noon EDT. You can read more on the OSLC blog, and you can sign-up to attend through IBM SmartCloud Events.
Don't miss the chance to learn more about the solution, and the technology behind it. Don't let your friends, colleagues, or clients miss out either!
By the way, you can also sign-up to be notified of any future OSLC webcasts, and if there is a topic you'd like to present, or know someone who should, make a post on the OSLC forums.
