IBM Think 2020 Blog IBM MSP Hub

To get to the heart of your business concerns and technical needs, we’ve completely redesigned the curriculum for San Francisco’s Think 2020 (May 4-7).

For the first time, for instance, you can choose a pass that’s tailored for you.

If your primary focus is on garnering business insights, then the Discover Pass is specifically designed for your needs.

If you’d prefer to explore the entire curriculum, including technical sessions, labs, certifications, and more, then the Full Conference Pass acts as a key to everything you need.

No matter which pass you choose, you can be assured that Think 2020 ensures you’re keeping ahead of the curve.

It offers invaluable insights from experts along with hands-on experience of the very latest technological innovations, from hybrid multicloud to data and AI.


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 the place to network with like-minded innovators in the business. The place to meet up with and 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.
