To get to the heart of your business concerns and technical needs, while building upon the World Health Organisation’s recommendations regarding COVID-19 Coronavirus, we’re taking an entirely new approach to our signature events.
As the health of IBM’s clients, employees and partners is our primary concern, we’ve completely transformed our Think 2020 conference to give you the very best of IBM, wherever you are.
IBM Think 2020, our premier client and developer conference, and PartnerWorld, for our Business Partners, will be recreated as a global, digital event.
It will still be held on May 5-6.
But now Think 2020 will be an exciting combination of live streamed content and interactive sessions and certifications, working alongside and in combination with locally hosted events.
This will allow you to discover the latest advancements in open technologies, from hybrid multicloud to data and AI, while interacting with the luminaries who are using this tech to transform our lives – and all without the risk of travelling.
Root your reinvention in this year’s reimagined event experience.
Think 2020: it’s not just one, single event
As an annual IBM business and technology conference, Think 2020 isn’t a single conference for thousands of people.
It’s thousands of curated conferences in one.
It’s a place, too, to network with like-minded innovators in the business.
The place to discuss your own theories and concerns with the industry’s luminaries, people who are using the latest advancements in open technologies to transform our lives.
At the Think Academy, you can build your credentials and bring thousands of dollars’ worth of lessons back to your organisation with access to hands-on training, certifications and labs.
You can opt for either scheduled or self-paced labs too, participating in guided, step-by-step technical sessions with expert instructors or, alternatively, exploring on your own time and at your own pace.
There’s also a choice of 250+ proctored certification and technical sales mastery exams, along with limited-capacity Master Classes run by IBM, Red Hat and other industry leaders.
They’ll ensure you master the technology you’re using today, the services you’re building for tomorrow, and the open solutions that integrate them seamlessly.
