I should start by introducing myself. My name is Vijay Bommireddipalli, and I am part of the Data Studio Enablement team. Our team works with customers and IBM Business Partners to get up and running on the latest and greatest stuff coming out of the development teams of Data Studio.
I just finished a couple of single day customer events that are part of a multi-city U.S. roadshow about Data Studio and IBM Mashup Center. The theme of this roadshow is about enabling a variety of enterprise data assets to end users in a services oriented paradigm, allowing business users instant access to information and freeing up IT from application development overload. These roadshows are *free* events that anyone can attend, so I'dlike to give you a little taste of what you can expect if you decide to come to one of the remaining shows in Chicago, Dallas, New York, or Boston. (See the front page of the Data Studio community space for links to registration or contact your favorite IBM sales rep.)
The way we present the material is walk the attendees through building Mashups on the screen, all the way to accessing and organizing data in their enterprise backend sources, showing a number of live demos of the technologies along the way. The attendees at a recent session in California seemed to "get" that picture. It was good to see the reaction of the attendees and the affirmation that some of the problems we are solving with IBM Data Studio and Mashup Center are actual problems they face on a daily basis.
On Thursday (Aug 21st), I will be in Chicago on the next leg of this roadshow. Hope to catch you at one of the future road shows. I also hope to catch some live blues music while in Chicago :)
