Yesterday evening I did my planing for the IBM Connect 2014. Not the travel, this has our travel already done, also the time before and after IBM Connect 2014 is organized. It will be a great time. Roman (CEO), Andre (COO) and Alain (Account Manager) are a good team and Roman, Andre and I will use the time after Connect to reflect what we have heard and which spirit we have felt. This will have an impact on our strategic planing.
During the planing Yesterday, I did recognize, how different this IBM Connect will be for me. My first LotusSphere in 2012 was under the sign of getting knowledge and get in touch with people from the community. In 2013 was expanding and developing of these relationships. I learned that knowing who knows it, is much more important than getting technical knowledge.
And now 2014 is under a new sign. I’m now IBM Champion and OpenNTF Chairman. I will have a Session (BP207) and a Birds of Feather Session (BOF405). And OpenNTF has a booth (308)!
Let’s see what happens.
