BRG’s IBM TRIRIGA Practice Team recently attended and exhibited at the 2016 InterConnect Conference. The event, hailed as “The Premier Cloud and Mobile Conference,” encouraged it’s more than 20,000 attendees to outthink limits and transform their business.

“We saw another great turnout of the TRIRIGA community at this year’s InterConnect conference,” said Troy Hergenrader, Senior Director of BRG’s IBM TRIRIGA Practice. “It was good to see so many familiar faces as well as new adopters, and encouraging to see IBM continue to invest in TRIRIGA in ways that will distinguish it from the pack.”

A Bronze Sponsor of InterConnect, BRG participated in the event EXPO, where we engaged with clients, business partners, end users and IBM software and sales specialists. The Expo was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, and featured more than 225 sponsors and exhibitors.

This year’s Conference focused on getting the most out of existing investments and featured a wide variety of speakers and presenters from a variety of companies, including Bitly, Adobe, NBCUniversal, and Nationwide Insurance as well as public figures and authors.

Our team was excited to return to the conference, attend the General Sessions and TRIRIGA-focused end-user presentations, as well as meet and connect with clients, learn more about IBM’s future roadmap for IBM TRIRIGA, and network with other industry and IT leaders.

On Tuesday evening, we hosted an Appreciation Dinner for clients and prospects at RM Seafood in the Mandalay Bay. More than 50 people attended the event, which featured a BRG TRIRIGA Awards ceremony, cirque-style entertainers, and giveaways. Attendees were also entered for a chance to win an Apple watch.

As IBM’s most comprehensive and collaborative conference, InterConnect’s agenda included more than 2,000 technical sessions, with 42 learning tracks across eight main topics. This year’s TRIRIGA sessions centered around client case studies and success stories, preparedness for the IASB/FASB lease accounting changes, and TRIRIGA technology platform enhancements by IBM.

As a follow-up to InterConnect, the TRIRIGA Practice Team is also attending the MidAtlantic TRIRIGA and Maximo Users’ Group (TRIMax) in Crystal City, Virginia October 26 – 27.
