IBM Business Partner sessions at Connect 2017

IBM Connect 2017 is a week away and while Business Partner Day is not there anymore, there is an agenda for IBM Business Partners still.
  • The general session for partners is Tuesday. Look for strategy and 2017 plans here
  • IBM Tools and Incentives - on Wednesday you can find out where to look and what incentives are new
  • Plan your 2017 strategy with IBM is also on Wednesday
  • Taking on Microsoft Office 365 with IBM solutions is tapped for Wednesday (against my session I see)
  • Making money in the Cloud is also Wednesday.
  • Enhanced Partnerworld is also on Wednesday
So if you want a non tech track and a lot of BP content then Wednesday is the day.  The IBM Event app has it all and I will have a video coming on that shortly

NuBryte Touchpoint smart panel review


NuBryte Touchpoint is a smart hub/smart touch panel that fits into existing lightswitch boxes.  You control numerous things like lighting, fans, an internal intercom, security and even use Alexa voice commands now. With a sleek design and just large enough touchscreen, the Lucis Technologies NuBryte Touchpoint can fit into any home decor.

While I was immediately curious how this compares to some of our reviews on hubs like Wink (see our review), I wanted to run this review as a new homeowner looking for some modern controls just entering the smarthome foray of products.  Ease of installation, configuration and use were key factors we went after.
NuBryte Touchpoint description


The NuBryte Touchpoint is available for single and double gang lightswitch boxes currently. They are definitely looking at models for larger three and four switch gangs as well.  The wiring on the back is labeled so well and a great instruction booklet comes with the product. Their support is just a call away to help you with any questions on the installation.  It took me about 8-9 minutes to install, which included turning off the power to the switch via the circuit breakers before I started.  Please remember to do that.
