  1. I don’t see a special event for this. Enterprise solutions don’t need huge exposure since it is usually industry and company specific. Not for public exposure in that way. There is a great deal of confidential software solutions that need to be protected from competitors.

  2. IBM I hate to say is going to fsck it up. You just can’t trust these idiots. They eagerly bought into the outsourcing mantra and now they’re paralysed by widespread ineptitude and incompetence.
