- “The breakout sessions were very instructional and informative. The social events were amazing, and the level of detail was spectacular.”
- “The conference was very well organized, provided valuable sessions, and great entertainment in the evenings. As a new user, I was continually impressed by the capabilities of Wdesk, and I’m excited to start using it in Q3.”
- “The Wdesk Lounge was great with the Solution Pods for product demos and the Q&A Bar where I could get specific technical help on my issues.”
- “The mobile app was hugely beneficial to find the rooms and change around my class choices. I also liked having access to development managers to give my input on future Wdesk features.”
- “I loved how professionally run the conference was. It really knocked my socks off—probably the most proficiently organized conference I have ever been to.”
- “What did I like the most? Everything. The execution was extremely thorough from minor details to group sessions. Excellent speakers (Paul DePodesta was great!), fabulous events, and the Wdesk Lounge was a great optional resource. Good schedule too, not too jam-packed but leaves it more up to you how much you want to get out of it. I loved that. I could do as little or as much as I wanted and could really tailor my experience. Awesome.”

We started with an idea: make complex collaboration easy.
We’ve been there. As accountants, engineers, and entrepreneurs, we experienced the struggles of using incorrect and untimely data. When we started, reporting was still manual—often involving hundreds of collaborators and many versions before the final draft. With old processes and tools, we were not confident in the quality of our data or reports.
We knew there was a better way, and that’s why we created Wdesk. It’s an all-in-one platform that simplifies complex collaboration while keeping data in sync, thus reducing risk. That’s why it’s already used by thousands of companies around the globe, including over 65% of the Fortune 500.
We have arrived at an inflection point where data is available
at such a scale that analytics can be applied to solve problems and yield real-time results in ways never before possible. IBM Analytics can help developers innovate faster and more securely, help business professionals find a smarter way to work via better problem solving and collaboration, and help enterprises gain deeper insight faster.
