In this economic downturn, organizations are looking to cut costs. Agile teams produce higher quality work, are quick to deliver and provide greater ROI. What can these teams do now to cut costs? Join us as Greg Rader provides his expertise and guidance on this pressing topic
Achieving effective software delivery while keeping risks and costs in check is a difficult balancing act. With Cloud computing, you can reduce the high deployment costs of delivering software while maintaining quality, improve control and governance while speeding time to market and enhance the flexibility of software development and delivery processes.

Included will be a review of new test management and key integrations with Rational Quality Manager, test lab management with Rational Test Lab Manager and domain-specific test functional, performance and web services automation capabilities that enable you to collaborate seamlessly to reduce rework and the cost of bugs, use smart automations to boost your productivity for more rapid ROI, and use real-time metrics and measures for full visibility into project quality status for informed action, greater predictability and incremental, ongoing improvement.
Complexity is a fact of life for government entities. One of the core dimensions of complexity is simply the range of services offered, and the variation that siloed approaches have created. To create smarter cities and municipalities, agencies and divisions must communicate and collaborate in ways that drive best practices around defining and delivering citizen-centric services with technology. In this video, you will hear from Roy Wiseman, CTO of the Canadian municipality of Peel, who along with other IT executives across Canada have been collaborating and capturing ideas on how to make government smarter through the development of a Municipal Reference Model. Roy will discuss how his team has worked with IBM Rational to make this model more actionable and accelerate collaboration which is improving the business of government across Canada.
Click here to watch the Dean Kamen, keynote on Innovation from the Innovate Conference in Orlando
Inventor, physicist, and engineer, Dean Kamen. Best known as the creator of the Segway Personal Transporter (one seriously smart product), Kamen discusses recent projects, like portable energy systems, water purification for the developing world, and a prosthetic arm for maimed soldiers. As always, Kamen speaks to his commitment to using innovation and technology to solve the world’s most challenging problems.
The General session keynote speeches with important announcements from Rational leaders and from IBM Research will be captured and "LiveStreamed" to various locations throughout North America. Those on the team that were not able to get to Orlando don't have to miss out. They can join others to watch and listen to the keynotes, network, have a cup of coffee, discuss the announcements with experts from IBM that will be present, and enjoy a networking lunch. Space is rapidly running out so if someone wants to go, they need to reserve their space. For more information, locations, and registration instructions, go to this link.
We're calling it "U-Innovate" because we want you, our customer and Innovate attendee, to determine what this Open Space session is about. You drive the topics.
U-Innovate is an unconference created to provide a unique forum for
you to collaborate with your peers on important software development
topics. It is your opportunity to spark up the conversation and exchange
views on the issues that you care most about.
We start with an
unconventional panel format where – if you have an opinion – you get to
be part of the panel. The unpanel is therefore designed for spontaneous
group discussion to identify your top questions and to give volunteer
experts an opportunity to answer each question in under a minute.
Despite the spontaneous nature of the event, it is well-planned. We’ve
listened to you and our moderators are prepared to help guide the team
through discussions on the hottest topics from your solution tracks.

The illustrious badge
ribbons will be back again this year for Innovate2010! However, we're
adding a new ribbon to the mix. For the first time, we'll be giving
recognition to our fans, followers, tweeters, and reviewers. Anyone who's
interacted with us through social media will be eligible to receive one.
Only problem is that we can't decide what they should say! We started
with a list of 30 and can't choose which four of the top 11 we like the most.
So, we're soliciting your help. Please fill out this
quick survey (one multiple
choice question) to give your input on which of the following you'd like to see
at the event. The top four will be printed and handed out in the social
media corner of the solution expo at Innovate 2010.
For the first-ever IBM Innovate Jam 2010, a hosted, online brainstorming session, to showcase how you use this invisible thread to drive innovation around the smarter products and services we need to build a smarter planet. If you haven't "jammed" before, this is a great opportunity to join in on a pre-event activity before the Innovate conference, which will bring together our attendees via social networking and a dynamic forum for discussion, thought leadership and will also help define the direction of the IBM Innovate 2010 conference in Orlando.
