The IBM Champion program recognizes innovative thought leaders in the technical community. An IBM Champion is an IT professional, business leader, or educator who influences and mentors others to help them make the best use of IBM software, solutions, and services, shares knowledge and expertise, and helps nurture and grow the community. The program recognizes participants' contributions over the past year in a variety of ways, including conference discounts, VIP access, and logo merchandise, exclusive communities and feedback opportunities, and recognition and promotion via IBM's social channels.
Contributions can come in a variety of forms, and popular contributions include blogging, speaking at conferences or events, moderating forums, leading user groups, and authoring books or magazines. Educators can also become IBM Champions; for example, academic faculty may become IBM Champions by including IBM products and technologies in course curricula and encouraging students to build skills and expertise in these areas.
Take the opportunity to nominate an influencer of IBM Social Business, IBM Power, or IBM Middleware, now. Nominations for the 2016 IBM Champion program will be accepted through Midnight Eastern Time, October 31st 2015.
