The Wisdom of the ancients…. Unlock the business secrets of SOA …
You may have already heard on the grapevine about an exciting IBM virtual world event being organised by the UK Enabling Business Flexibility team next month. On 28th and 29th April, a
team of our top IBM SOA experts will take a select group of IT Architects on an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of IBM’s Virtual Forbidden City, to demonstrate the business benefits
of IBM’s SOA technologies.
This is one of the first campaign of its kind with a “Drive to” ONLY based on SM tactics.
We’re using online channels such as Twitter, YouTube, Linked-in, Facebook, Flickr SOA blogs etc..) to promote the event, and will be talking to bloggers in the
SOA/Technology sphere- reaching out to a whole new network of Social Media-based contacts in the process. I’m also collating a resource centre on W3 where IBMers can find content,
pictures, widgets etc. As an IBM colleague who is interested in SOA and an active Social Media user, I’d like to ask for your help to raise awareness about this groundbreaking event to
the wider world.
I hope you will be as enthused as I am about the event, and will want to help spread the word outside IBM and drive sign-up via the dedicated event
Here are a few ways you can help:
• Follow @ibmvfc on Twitter for all the latest re-Tweetable event news.
• Write about the event on your blog – ask me for more information and resources.
• Post links and start discussions on other social networks – LinkedIn, Facebook etc.
We’d love to hear your opinion on the event, and any other ideas you may have for helping us to promote it. You’ll find a complete list of resources below – but please feel free to give me a shout if you need anything else.
