IBM Think 2020: A Digital Event Experience

This week I have been attending the first virtual IBM Think conference. As most of my readers know, I attend the annual IBM Think conference to keep up-to-date on all of the latest news, issues, and trends in IT computing and infrastructure, and specifically IBM’s technologies.

I mean, let’s face it. It can be difficult to keep up with all of the technology shifts and changes going on these days. The IBM Think event helps me because it addresses all of them including things like AI, cloud, analytics, infrastructure, security, and even more nascent trends like quantum computing.

At any rate, most years Think is an in-person event, attracting over ten thousand IT executives and practitioners. But with the global COVID-19 pandemic, an in-person event was not practical, so IBM held it on-line. And I have to say, they did a fantastic job of managing multiple threads of content without experiencing bandwidth or access issues – at least none that I encountered.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to participate in a live podcast meetup to discuss my thoughts on the Think 2020 event with some other great social influencers.


I joined a panel of social influencers including Neil Cattermull, Steve Dickens, Sally Eaves, Tony Flath, Sarbjeet Johal, Antonio Santos, and Melissa Sassi. There I am in the first square from the left on the second line!
