Innovate to Accelerate Your Business
featuring IBM Power Systems™

March 19, 2013 at Soldier Field


IBM invites you to learn more about how the principles of smarter computing can be used to accelerate your business past the competition at Soldier Field. Soldier Field is a historic stadium, honoring American soldiers, located on Chicago's Museum Campus and home to the Chicago Bears. The venue features spectacular lake and city skyline views as well as a view of the field during our networking reception in the Skyline Suite.

In this energetic setting, you'll hear from a variety of technology and business innovation leaders who will share insights on how to get more from your IT infrastructure. You'll learn why your IT infrastructure should be doing more for your business than just single-stream transaction processing. It has the potential to differentiate you from your competitors, gain meaningful insights for your business, and ease the adoption of cloud technologies to do more with less.

Register today to attend this one of a kind event where business leaders and industry peers will discuss IT industry trends, highlight changing workforce and client needs, and the IT opportunity that it presents to your organization. An expert panel will share examples of success using business analytics, Big Data, and cloud computing IT solutions.

Registration is now closed.
