The Cognitive Era is a new technological era. The shift to cognitive business, solutions and technologies is transformational and offers tremendous opportunities to IBM Business Partners. As we begin this new year in the Cognitive Era, we are all excited about planning for our annual collaboration conference, IBM Connect. This year will be even better as Connect 2017 (February 20–23) moves to San Francisco, the nation’s tech hub! We have lots of new announcements and innovations, including cognitive technology, to share with you.

Watson is being infused into IBM Collaboration Solutions. Collaboration solutions with Watson analytics will help you get answers and insights quickly, find experts and connect, improve productivity and redefine the way we work. In addition to exploring the benefits of a reinvigorated workforce, here are a few reasons why I think you will not want to miss IBM Connect 2017:
