I know I am, and I'm sure you are too! Our good friend, Darrel Rader, published a great blog post back on May 10th surrounding our Birds of a Feather Session at Innovate 2012.
Darrel and team will be meeting Monday June 4th from 12:45 to 1:30 in the Dolphin - Oceanic 1 to discuss topics like communities, collaboration, social learning, social business, building your digital reputation. The title in Agenda Builder is: BOF-1770 "Engineers can be social - A look at Collaboration without traditional boundaries".
But this isn't just an update to let you know about this session.. Darrel wants to start the conversation NOW, even if you're not going to be at Innovate 2012. Head on over to his blog post to see a few conversation starters and join in the conversation.
This is one session you shouldn't miss, whether you're at Innovate or not!
Jennifer Moore (Rational's Go-to-market Manager for CLM) recently recorded a podcast on what to expect from Lifecycle Solutions track at Innovate 2012. This is a quick ten minute chat that goes over exactly what to expect form the Lifecycle Solutions Track at Innovate 2012; Jennifer even goes as far as calling out a few specific session numbers (pay attention!) that will provide deep value from the CLM perspectives...
Keep your competitive edge! Be more innovative, faster and better.
Speaker: Jennifer Moore - IBM Rational Go-to-market Manager, CLM
Be innovative and be fast or watch your competition announce that next great product of service ahead of you! And do it while managing the high costs of disconnected software development.
The combination of innovation and speed can help organizations stay competitive and decreases the opportunity for competition to announce that next great product or service ahead of you. At Innovate 2012, our Lifecycle Solution track will talk about how your organization can keep that competitive edge with IBM Rational's Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution so that you can be more innovative, faster and better. In this track you will not only learn what is new in CLM but also how forward thinking organizations are reducing costs and optimizing productivity with better collaboration across teams and multi-platforms with effective Application Lifecycle Management capabilities built on the unifying, open, extensible Jazz platform.
In addition to IBM experts speaking at the event, you will also have many customer speakers sharing their stories as well. To know what more is in store at the Lifecycle Solution track at Innovate 2012, listen to the podcast here.
