IBM Connect 2016 began today in Orlando, Florida, starting with two scene-setting general sessions:
General Session Part 1 “Turn Moments into Momentum”
In this opening General Session, Jason Silva, host of National Geographic’s Brain Games, set the stage by describing the potential to extend collaboration with technologies like cognitive computing, ultimately changing the way we work and live. We then illustrate how IBM plans to bring these future capabilities to your business as we share our vision of an Engaged Enterprise. Then, hear the inspirational story of how East African entrepreneurs have been empowered through the use of IBM collaboration and cloud technology to create a fair trade climate and we wrap the session by recognising the next generation of business leaders as we chat with the winners of the university collaboration challenge.
