Program strategy & solution

Building off the first IBM Analytics University, Foundry developed a custom event experience that expanded on the previous year to include more robust content, in-depth discussions, hands-on workshops and product demonstrations on IBM’s analytics offerings. From a call for papers to delegate marketing and smart badges tracking activity onsite, Foundry provided turnkey and value-added services for a seamless event experience for IBM and an immersive learning opportunity for technology decision-makers.

“Being able to meet with and collaborate with the Planning Analytics Product Design team was immeasurable. Providing sessions to allow users/developers share their insights with the Designers I believe will deliver solid results.”
