Welcome to Orlando! Now that we are all arriving here at Voice/Innovate I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is John Banks-Binici, and I'm the new Director of Rational WW Client Success Delivery. I report directly to Wendy Toh Vice President of Rational Client Success. Many of you had a personal and direct relationship with my predecessor, Chris Flynn, over the many years he held this position at Rational Support. I too look forward to building a partnership with all of you to make sure we at Rational are doing all the things you need us to be doing to pro-actively ensure your success with our products and solutions.
I'm very excited about this year's Innovate sessions, especially those presented by our own Rational Client Support teams. We have over 4,000 attendees this year, with 470+ breakout sessions and workshops, 210 client presentations, 135 business partner presentations, and a cutting edge Technology Expo with over 60+ business partner sponsors as well as IBM offerings.
I hope you look forward as much as I do, to this truly unique opportunity to share with each other our successes, our challenges and our plans going forward. If you'd like to meet with me please reach out via your IBM sales account representative and schedule an executive 1x1.
