Blue Box in the house! It’s almost time for IBM InterConnect.

Blue Box in the house! It’s almost time for IBM InterConnect.

As we prepare for our first experience at InterConnect as an IBM company, it’s insane to think how far we’ve come since Interconnect 2015 where we began our discussions with the IBM Cloud leadership team–which ultimately paved way for the acquisition.
