PartnerWorld 2002 is rapidly approaching. Please join me and my colleagues February 17-20, 2002 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California for this unique forum where IBM and IBM Business Partners will continue to build and extend business relationships, exchange ideas and shape the future of e-business. This year's conference is especially redesigned to achieve a greater focus on collaboration between IBM and IBM Business Partners. But there's more, much more.
The conference theme, "how e(logo) do you want to be?" relates to the process companies go through as they evolve as e-businesses. During the conference, we'll introduce you to a new and exciting approach to this evolution called the "e-business Adoption Model." You'll learn how to utilize the "stages of adoption" to assess your customers' needs and recommend relevant e-business solutions.
In addition to the focus on collaboration, PartnerWorld 2002 incorporates many other significant changes: including the restructuring of the elective sessions into a more collaborative format (thus we have renamed them "exchanges,") and the creation of geography-focused exchanges. The conference will feature many new "exchanges," tools and methodologies specifically designed to help you:
- Assess the unique e-business needs of your customers
- Lower costs and increase margins
- Leverage the vast skills and resources of the IBM Business Partner network
- Simplify the way you do business with IBM
And at the very end of the PartnerWorld conference we will discuss new strategies to help you create new revenue and market opportunities in the coming year. You won't want to miss the very last session of the last day.

I look forward to seeing you there.
