The last couple of days have been rather hectic at work, more than anything else as I was going through the final details for my next business trip that will start tomorrow. Well, not exactly tomorrow. But yes, tomorrow I am on the road again! Yay!
Yes, that’s right! Tomorrow I will start with a half and half vacation / business trip into mainland Spain. More specific going to Madrid and then Barcelona. I will be spending a couple of days off in both cities and in between I will be taking part of what promises to be quite an interesting couple of events taking place during next week: Lotusphere Comes to You 2009 (Lotusphere llega a su ciudad 2009).
As you will be able to see from the agenda, both events are going to be rather intense and on a fast pace, since there would be plenty of stuff to cover for just one morning each. Still it promises to be rather exciting to be able to get together in a single place IBM‘s customers, various business partners as well as a bunch of IBMers, talking about some of the really nice stuff that was shown during Lotusphere 2009.
In this particular edition there are plenty of news to be shared as well and as such there are plenty of new sources of information. There is a blog with a tremendous amount of detail on what the event will be like and other pieces of relevant details that may be of interest; there is also a Facebook event for folks to hang out before, during and after the event, as well as a Twitter ID, where people can reach out to digest some more info details.
But, let’s go back into the agenda for a minute:
As you would be able to see, pretty intense, like I mentioned earlier on! Take a look though at the time slot 11:15 to 11:45am where yours truly, along with another fellow colleague, will be talking on the topic of Web 2.0 and how it has moved into the corporate world under Enterprise 2.0. We will be talking about collaboration, productivity and adoption within the enterprise, but at the same time we will be spending some time in discussing the huge opportunity for social software in the current business environment as well as cover the latest news related to perhaps a couple of the most powerful Enterprise 2.0 products IBM is offering at the moment: Lotus Quickr & Lotus Connections.
We will be mentioning some of the really cool features coming up with both Quickr and Connections, specially with v2.5 of Connections, where there are some pretty fundamental changes worth while exploring further.
Like I said, one event to keep an eye on. For sure! If you would want to register for the event head over here and sign up! If you also fancy getting together before, during or after both Lotusphere Comes to You events (Madrid & Barcelona), for a drink and / or a chat, you know where to find me already, right? 😉
See you there!
(Oh, and not to worry, I won’t be talking about "A World Without Email", unless you ask me to 😀 )
