Ok, friends. You asked for it. Some of you begged. I have secured agreement to keep the IBM Champion nominations for 2017 open for a little bit longer.
THANK you for nearly 1000 nominations that are already completed and IN the system. We appreciate the nominators, the nominees, and the time and energy you've put into both the year's work and the nomination process. The teams are already starting the review work.
We are not extending nominations due to low turnout.
We are extending nominations because we did some recruiting at the recent World of Watson and Watson Developer Conference events and those folks asked for a bit more time to gather their nominations.
We are extending nominations because we changed the schedule that Champions for IBM Analytics were used to using and wanted to be sure we didn't miss them.
We are extending nominations due to some challenges we know we've had with the nomination form and the trouble some of you have reported with it. Please use THIS
So, now for the extension details...
IBM Champion nominations for IBM Analytics, IBM Cloud, including Middleware, and Power Systems will be extended through Monday, November 28.
Nominations in Collaboration Solutions will NOT be extended.
The selection process will continue through the end of the year and IBM Champions, nominators, and nominees will be notified of their status in January.
One more clarification I'd like to share. I've had a few questions about those who are working with technology that isn't explicitly listed: cognitive, blockchain, internet of things, to name a few. If you have been or know someone who should be an IBM Champion in those areas, please nominate. I typically suggest that these are mostly likely to find their place in Cloud or Analytics.
If you need help or have problems or questions, please get in touch! You can always find me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach our to the program manager in your area directly.
