Next Monday marks the beginning of three, very exciting, days at IBM Amplify 2016 in sunny Tampa, Florida. Amplify 2016 is an annual IBM event that boasts a robust curriculum composed of general sessions, four keynotes and 200+ break-out sessions which include client and partner led stories. This year’s theme is “outthink ordinary” and is focused around Cognitive Commerce.
Exchange Solutions is participating not only as an Official Business Partner, but also as a proud Gold Sponsor. IBM Amplify is one of our biggest events for the year and we have a lot of really exciting activities and announcements over these three days. This year, the show floor is divided into 5 IBM “zones” and you can find us at Booth #710 in the eCommerce and Merchandising area.
We are proud to be showcasing Smarter Loyalty – the only loyalty solution native to IBM WebSphere Commerce – at this year’s event which is host to over1,600 IBM clients. Visit us at our booth to learn more about Smarter Loyalty and to watch a live demo on one of our interactive screens. You’ll also find us at the IBM Engagement Bar where we will be showing live demos of Smarter Loyalty during all hours of the solution showcase.
Not only are we participating on the show floor this year, we’re thrilled to announce that we will be leading several “on-stage” sessions throughout the show. Details of our sessions are as follows:
