The BRG Team arrived in Vegas for the 2012 IBM Pulse Conference. Nearly the entire team attended and engaged in the Business Partner Summit Meetings for the majority of the day. The Solutions Expo opened that evening at 6pm and a flood of IBM End Users and IBMers occupied the expo floor. It was a whirlwind of questions, demonstrations and networking. The team presented ad-hoc demonstrations of the TRIRIGA Real Estate and Space Management modules for a variety of interested visitors.

Today’s General Session was incredible! An estimated total of 8,000 people from 79 different countries attended this conference and the magnitude of this number hit home in the opening General Session. The rest of the day would consist of Stream Keynote Sessions, Workshops, and the opening of the Solutions Expo.

Tuesday’s opening session was equally as powerful and crowded as Monday’s session. Between General Sessions, Breakout Sessions, Stream Keynotes and the Solutions Expo, the team had little time to stop for a breather! Troy, Anthony and Thierry performed on-the-spot demonstrations of various TRIRIGA modules for quite a few interested booth visitors. We had thought-provoking conversations with many IBM end users from all over the world.

To finish out Tuesday, IBM and Avnet presented a Maroon 5 concert to the Pulse attendees. What an amazing experience! Maroon 5 was amazing and the crowd’s energy was intense. Huge thanks to IBM and Avnet for coordinating a great Pulse Palooza.

On the final day of the conference, the BRG team continued to attend sessions, network, and exhibit. We were all very pleased with the conference and the connections we made. The sessions were extremely valuable and informative, and we are looking forward to attending and exhibiting again next year.
Thanks to everyone who attended our appreciation dinner. The IBM Pulse conference was a successful way to show how BRG is working closely with customers to find strategic solutions to achieving their goals through IWMS best-practices and collaborative innovation. We enjoyed your company and hope to see you at the 2013 IBM Pulse Conference which will incorporate the TRIRIGA content into a much broader offering.
