Announcing MWLUG 2014 IBM OGS Speaker
As we head towards MWLUG 2014 in August things are picking up steam and we are quickly moving forward in providing you one of the best ICS user group conference of this year. We have many things planned and a few surprises. If you miss this year’s MWLUG, you will be missing something that you may never have a chance to experience again. So don’t miss it. We will be announcing this the near future. The theme of MWLUG 2014 is "Connecting the Human Community" and this is what user group conferences bring to our community. It is an opportunity to network and learn from our colleagues within our community.
I am please to announce that one of the newest member of our community, Kramer Reeves, Director of Product Management for Collaboration Solutions, will be the IBM Opening General Session speaker. Kramer who became the Director of Product Management for ICS last year comes from an area of great interest for me, business process management.
Kramer Reeves has over 15 years experience in the enterprise software industry, 11 of which at IBM. He is currently Director of Product Management for Collaboration Solutions inside IBM Software Group. In this role, Kramer leads a world-wide team and overall business responsibilities for key product lines including IBM’s messaging and collaboration solutions; unified communications software; and the workforce productivity portfolio.
