On Thursday, 3 September, the IBM Cloud team in Ireland delivered our first breakfast briefing in the Merrion Hotel in Dublin. Themed ‘Accelerating Digital Business with IBM Cloud‘ the event saw Doug Clark (UKI CLoud Leader at IBM) and John Easton (IBM Distinguished Engineer & Lead Cloud Advisor) share insights into cloud as a disruptive technology, enabling new delivery and business models across a variety of industries. Doug outlined client examples where IBM Cloud solutions were employed to deliver business results and disrupt industries. John shared IBM’s vision for the future of the IT Department and transformation in roles across business, IT and development with the adoption of cloud solutions.
The event closed with a call to action offering attendees the opportunity to engage with the IBM Cloud team in Ireland through SoftLayer enablement, Bluemix enablement, the delivery of a Cloud Adoption Workshop or tailored briefing on IBM Cloud solutions. Questions from the floor and subsequent one to one conversations saw the event that should have closed by 10:30am still buzzing almost an hour later!
All in all, yesterday’s breakfast briefing was a great success – the room was packed, so much so, that the hotel staff were struggling to find additional chairs to seat the number of attendees 🙂 Our speakers were excellent and feedback from the audience was overwhelmingly positive.
