It was great to see all my friends and colleagues at Pulse 2013 again. Day 1 was jammed packed with knowledge and excitement. Todd Watson does a great job summarizing the Opening General Session highlights. You can also watch the session on video.
As you know, I’m following news around Expert Integrated Systems–IBM PureSystems– at the conference.
I watched two interviews with PureSystems executives on the Pulse Expo Livestream stage today. See embedded players below:
- Monday, 11 am PT: Interview with Jason Gartner, Vice President of IBM PureSystems Product Management, and Nancy Pearson, Vice President of IBM PureSystems Marketing
- Monday at 12 pm PT: Interview with Jason McGee, Distinguished Engineer, IBM PureApplication
I attended two sessions with PureSystems subject matter experts:
- Secure Your Infrastructure with Built-In, Integrated Security Capabilities for Cloud and Data–Ajay Dholakia, IBM, Senior Technical Staff Member; Jeb Linton, IBM, STSM, Corporate Technology Strategy
- Pattern-Based Cloud Deployment: What It Is and How It Can Help Your Business–Marc Haberkorn, IBM, Senior Product Manager – IBM PureApplication System
Ajay Dholakia did a Tech Talk on his session. See embedded player below.
I manned the PureSystems booth in the Pulse expo for several hours and had a chance to hang out with the best and the brightest in Expert Integrated Systems at IBM. One of the most interesting questions we heard was, “How can I use a PureSystems box on a military battleship?” Answer: Any way you want to.
In the evening, we celebrated the PurePalooza with Carrie Underwood–sponsored by PureSystems. What a fantastic night! Congratulations to Jason Verly (@mygeekdaddy) for winning the PurePalooza photo contest for best picture.
