After reviewing and evaluating the contributions of our applicants, we're happy to announce the 2016 IBM Champions for Analytics! We have a total of 189 Champions, with 43 new Champions, and 146 returning Champions.
These individuals are non-IBMers who evangelize IBM solutions, share their knowledge, and help grow the community of professionals who are focused on IBM Analytics. 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, IBM Champion open badges, and invitations and discounts to IBM conferences. They are highlighted online and recognized at live events. In addition, they may be offered various speaking opportunities that enable them to raise their visibility and broaden their sphere of influence.
Meet the 2016 IBM Champions for Analytics: We look forward to working with this amazing group of community leaders!
