    Hi everyone, 

    My name is Gabriel, and I am part of the IBM Community Management team. There are several of us working to make the watsonx Orchestrate community the place to gather, share information, and help each other! 

    Our goals are to support you, answer your question, facilitate conversations, help you get to know the platform, and provide you with the information you might need to get the most out of watsonx Orchestrate and your favorite digey!

    We'd love if you'd introduce yourself briefly in the comments below by answering one or all of the following questions (or feel free to add your own twist to it):


    • What would make this community amazing for you?
    • How do you stay productive during your work day?
    • What are you passionate about, other than work?
    • What would you like to know about watsonx Orchestrate?

    Here's a little about me: I am originally from the Dominican Republic and I joined IBM a few months ago after graduating from Drexel University. I have mainly worked in the startup space, where I built a digital marketplace for freelance creative professionals and worked as a scout for AWS to help student founders grow their companies. I like to spend my time hiking on the weekends or meeting new people at coffee shops or tech events. I hope that we get to know each other and that we can make this community your go-to place for all things watsonx Orchestrate. Feel free to reach out with any questions! 

    Now that you know a bit about me, let's hear from you! :D

    Thanks for sharing @Gabriel Marte Blanco !

    Nice to meet everyone, I am a product manager on the Watson Orchestrate team with a passion for automation as I see it as a way to improve everyone's life at work as well as for those they serve (the customers) in their day-to-day life. I have have various roles (tech support, tech sales, sales, product mgmt...) on various automation technologies (business rules/decision mgmt,  process mgmt, content mgmt...) and have been really excited to now get to work on the new frontier of software that digital employees have come to be!

    My other interests also include being in nature, meeting with friends for some in-depth philosophical discussions as well as undo the automation I/we have in our heads by exploring mindfulness:) I like to say that "automation belongs in our software, not our minds!", and solution like Watson Orchestrate is actually part of the solution as it helps reduce the repetitions that tend to become imprinted into our behaviors.

    I am really excited we launched this community as I see it become a place to exchange ideas on how a digital employee does/could improve everyone's productivity (+ mindfulness & creativity!), looking to hear from various roles, industries, geographies... this will really inform us on use-cases we have not thought about yet (sky is the limit!) and help shape how we further improve its capabilities (also consult/contribute to our idea portal).

    ​​​Looking forward to hear from you all!
