The week of February 21-24, IBM will be hosting their annual Pulse 2010 conference in Las Vegas! Woohoo!
In the past, the conference’s main focus has been on the IBM Tivoli tools which IT operations personnel use to manage a dynamic IT infrastructure. This year though, the focus is on the larger objective of Service Management. The larger Service Management focus means that while it remains critical to keep your applications up and running, it is as important to focus on the development of those services. Accordingly, at this year’s Pulse there’s a “Software Delivery Lifecycle Management” stream which covers the Quality Management, Change Management and Delivery of Services.
The call for papers is now open, and consider this your invitation to participate. If you’re a software delivery professional creating, building and testing applications and services we want to hear from you. Come share your knowledge and expertise with a larger service management community, and in turn hear what other software delivery professionals are doing as part of their service management efforts.
Speakers get a free conference pass, which entitles them to attend all sessions, keynotes, meals and events at the conference. I haven’t seen the keynote line up yet, but last year Magic Johnson was on board – have a look. The Rational Tester will be there – this is one not to miss!
