IBM Connect 2014 Session Selection: First round posted, setting the tone
If you submitted an abstract for IBM Connect 2014, Look here to see if yours has already been chosen.
If you are attending IBM Connect 2014, this will give you a taste of what to expect at the conference.
Some of the selections are no surprise. Mat Newman, with his new role at IBM; Gabriella Davis and Chris Miller will be talking about SAML, a big deal for integrating any cloud services with single sign-on; Wes Morgan has two sessions already on the list; Ed Brill will be there to talk about his new baby that is growing up fast: MobileFirst; Kathy Brown will be talking XPages; Chris Whisonant and Mitch Cohen will share a real world example of a smarter workforce. Yes, many excellent speakers are already on the schedule. These are the speakers that people just look for their name when choosing the session because they know it will be good, regardless of the topic. If your abstract hasn’t been selected yet, don’t fret. They have 4 days of sessions that need to be filled and they’re just getting started. Check back at http://ibm.com/blogs/socialbusiness each Monday to see the next round of selected abstracts.
One thing missing so far are sessions that might serve the Kenexa crowd. Last year it was great to see all the new faces that came with the Kenexa enthusiasts, but I am still unclear how the two separate interests will be blended. In either case, The sessions are looking to be great topics.
See you there!
