Systems at Innovate Daily Highlights - Monday
It looks like we have a fantastic and lively group of complex and embedded systems folks with us here at Innovate 2012. It was great to have everyone gathered together and ‘glowing’ at the welcome reception. We’re of to an exciting start at this year’s conference so in case you missed something, here are some systems highlights from yesterday:
Rational Champions Reception
Sunday night at Innovate a few select systems clients were invited to the Cabana Bar and Beach Club to join an intimate gathering to meet and mingle with IBM executives and the Rational Systems team. Clients enjoyed themselves during this event which provided a perfect way to kick off Innovate with some lively conversations in an intimate, yet casual setting.
Business Partner Day
During Business Partner Day on Sunday, Rational Director Mark Lefebvre presented "Leveraging the Rational Systems Ecosystem to Increase Client Value" to an overflowing room of business partners. During this discussion, Business Partners were updated on the Systems strategy, new Rational offerings and how partners can participate in and leverage the Systems ecosystem to create client value.
VoiCE The Rational Voice of the Customer Event.
At VoiCE, strategy and roadmap for our Systems and Software Engineering solution and its constituent products were discussed. But much more importantly, breakout discussions were held to capture key scenarios, needs and requirements from customers to help shape the future direction of our Systems and Software Engineering capabilities.
Complex and Embedded Systems at the Solution Center
Systems was ‘making some noise’ at the solution center today! Our lively group of systems attendees enjoyed systems and software engineering solutions demonstrations.
