There are loads of conferences coming up. In October, I'll be attending and covering both the IBM InterConnect event in Singapore (October 9 to 11), and am currently preparing myself psychologically for the long plane ride.
Later in the month, from October 21 to 25, I'll be covering the seventh Information on Demand event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I'll have more info on those soon, but in the meantime wanted to highlight another key event that will probably be flying a little under the radar, the Cúram International User Conference.
Entitled "Smarter Social Programs to Deliver Better Outcomes," the Cúram event will be held starting tomorrow, October 1, through Thursday, October 4, at the Grand Hyatt Washington Hotel in Washington, D.C.
What's notable about this particular event is its orientation towards helping people who help other people.
Social services organizations around the world find themselves in challenging times, with increasing demands for their resources and higher service expectations, at a time when tax revenues aren't exactly peaking.
Many of those organizations have begun to leverage Cúram software to ensure they have the most fitting business and technology foundation to support those increasing demands.
At the Cúram event, attendees will learn about best-practices from some of the more leading-edge social services practitioners, hear more about the latest social services trends, and network with their peers from around the globe.
They'll also have the opportunity to see the latest Cúram solutions and technology in action, and meet Cúram integrators and partners.
You can learn more about the event here, and more about IBM Cúram software here.
