After several weeks of reviewing applications and evaluating contributions, we're happy to announce the 2016 IBM Champions for IBM Middleware! We have a total of 57 Champions, with 13 new Champions, and 44 returning Champions.
Congratulations to our 2016 IBM Champions for Middleware!
These individuals are non-IBMers who evangelize IBM solutions, share their knowledge, and help grow the community of professionals focused on IBM Middleware. IBM Champions spend a considerable amount of their own time, energy and resources on community efforts — organizing and leading user group events, answering questions in forums, contributing wiki articles and applications, publishing podcasts, sharing instructional videos and more!
As a reward, IBM Champions receive IBM Champion branded merchandise as well as invitations and discounts to IBM conferences. They are highlighted online and recognized at live events. IBM Champions are also granted access to key IBM business executives and technical leaders to share their opinions, learn about strategic plans, and ask questions. In addition, they may be offered various speaking opportunities that enable them to raise their visibility and broaden their sphere of influence.
We look forward to working with this amazing group of community leaders!
