Getting Started with IBM Champions community

By Libby Ingrassia posted Mon January 11, 2021 12:00 AM

Welcome to the IBM Champions community, a collaborative community space for you to engage with the IBM Champions. IBM Champions are non-IBMers who are top experts and thought leaders around IBM technology. We invite you to learn from and engage with the IBM Champions' expertise offered in this community -- and across other topic area communities. As program director and community manager here, I look forward to supporting this group by monitoring feedback and questions, providing useful information and tools, and helping you to share ideas and use cases, ask for advice, and troubleshoot. ​

A quick tour of what you'll see in this community:

  • Featured Blog: We'll feature a blog written about what our IBM Champions are doing, introductions and spotlights about the IBM Champions, or a blog written by an IBM Champion.
  • From the Champions: You'll see a piece of content a Champion has shared about a some technology or a piece of thought leadership. You may also find content about the Champions from across the IBM Community.
  • Events: IBM Champions are always creating or speaking at events. We'll feature events where you can connect with them in person or online.
  • Highlights: Here you'll find an integration of news by or about the IBM Champions, featuring content across IBM technologies, products, and communities.

If you want to engage with Champions, jump into the Discussions. As the primary function for community, we invite all of our members to use the discussion board as a place to introduce yourselves, share some background on your experience, ask any questions or advice to other members and experts, or put out a call to action. Of course, since IBM Champions are all across the IBM Community (and external communities), we encourage you to talk specific products in the appropriate topic areas - but if you want to ask questions around nominations, general thought leadership, or about the IBM Champions program itself, let's connect here.

Featured IBM Champions: Each week, we'll feature three IBM Champions who are active in the community. Get to know them and follow the link to build a connection to them. You can also follow the See all IBM Champions link to find our community roster - all IBM Champions who are here in the IBM Community. And our Find Champions on map link to see where all 750+ IBM Champions are around the world.

Looking forward to getting to know our members and tailoring the Business Analytics community to your needs. Thanks for dropping an introduction and any feedback here -- again, welcome!
