The annual Business Automation Summit has always been a special event. We have convened in beautiful places, had inspirational guests, and discussed IBM strategy and direction at a deep level. Many IBM customers have called it their favorite event of the year.
So how to make it amazing when we have to, yet again, meet virtually? This year, we’re focusing on Innovation in the Business Automation portfolio and we’re opening the Event to all who are interested in using Business Automation capabilities to innovate at their organization.
Your host is Bill Lobig, Vice President of Product Management for IBM Automation, who will have a series of conversations about Innovation with some uniquely qualified guests. Bill begins the conversation with Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of Deep Analysis and the creator of the Innovation Index, who will discuss what innovation looks like for Automation.
Did you know that IBM has received more patents than any other hi tech company every year – for 28 years? Dr. Merve Unuvar, Director of AI and Automation for IBM Research, will illuminate how IBM nurtures innovation from patent to product and she’ll share some of the new projects her team is working on for Business Automation.
You’ll learn IBM’s criteria for innovation, which is to bring new value in the form of new capabilities, new ways to design and deploy solutions, and new ways for IBM enterprise customers to use Automation to innovate. James Taylor, CEO of Decision Management Solutions, who has a successful 20-year track record helping large IBM customers innovate, has some very prescriptive advice for attendees on how and where to get started building the “Autonomous business.”
