3 IBM Analytics events you can't miss this fall

Global Vice President, IBM Analytics

Today’s technology brings people together like never before, but there’s still no substitute for meeting people face to face. That’s especially true when you want to accelerate learning and build your professional network.

In the coming weeks, you have three great opportunities — two in the US, one in Europe — to network with industry peers and meet IBM subject matter experts who can help you leverage data and analytics on your journey to AI.

Play to win with AI in New York City

First up, on the evening of 13 September, IBM Analytics general manager Rob Thomas will be co-hosting Change the game: winning with AI at Terminal 5 in midtown Manhattan alongside longtime ESPN SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm. Some of our customers will describe the winning plays with data and analytics that are enabling them to change the game in their industries, followed by expert analysis by IBM.

Rob’s entire leadership team will be there, along with product leaders and other IBM subject matter experts. You’ll hear the latest announcements from IBM Analytics, including demos and hands-on experiences from IBM and some of our key technology partners.

There will also be free food and drinks and plenty of time for relaxed networking with IBMers and your peers. It will happen in a fun venue reminiscent of a sports bar. Find out more about the event and register, — but don’t wait. Our last event like this saw people lined up around the block waiting for the doors to open.

While we’d love for you to join us in New York, we know it won’t be practical for everyone to attend. If you can’t make it in person, please take advantage of the livestream of the event, which you can sign up for through the same link.

Take yourself back to school at Analytics University in Stockholm or Miami

The two Analytics University events we held last year proved to be enormously popular and truly educational for our customers. This year, the first meeting of Analytics University will be held in Stockholm, Sweden, on 17 – 20 September, and the second will take place in Miami, Florida, on 2 – 5 October.
