Day one of SAPPHIRE 2013 has come and gone. Attending SAPPHIRE for the first time in 12 years, I can say that the magnitude and energy of the event is impressive. In addition to a plentiful supply of coffee and soda (thanks SAP!), a late afternoon drumming performance and high-energy keynote by author Seth Godin kept the crowd engaged well after 6 p.m.
The IBM booth is spectacular, with both a 30X40 space for experiential demos and brand-specific conversations and an adjacent 20X20 space housing the IBM Client Center - Lab for SAP Solutions. Both locations are bustling with meetings, and the IBMers working the booth are ready to engage clients in conversations on a variety of topics. We even got a shout out during the morning keynote address from Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank!
