On Sunday, Impact 2013 kicked off with a focus on IBM’s Business Partners. Nearly 800 Business Partners from various industries are in attendance. The IBM Certification Test Center also opened to huge crowds. The Certification Center was opened for half a day only and we had 70 tests delivered. We are off to a great start. The most popular tests were WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment Administration, Core Administration and WebSphere MQ, System Administration.
Monday is the official start to Impact 2013. The Certification Center opens after the general session and is open through Thursday. Tests are offered in the areas of WebSphere, WebSphere Portal, Commerce, Connectity and Integtration, SOA, Rational, Business Analytics, Information Management, and Cloud Computing. Testing is on a “first come; first serve walk-in” method. A photo identification and your conference badge are required to sign up for a test.
