For four consecutive years, my colleague, Kim May – VP of Business Development for The Fillmore Group, has been named an IBM Champion.  Kim has

  • been on the board of the Baltimore/Washington DB2 Users Group since 2005
  • presented at the IBM Information on Demand (IOD) conference in 2010
  • run the DB2 Connect Virtual Users Group since 2010
  • hosted luncheons to help existing IBM customers understand the breadth of the IBM Information Management software portfolio since 2011
  • blogs and tweets on a regular basis

The Virtual Users Group (VUG) approach has been so successful in fostering community in the DB2 Connect domain that three new VUGs will debut in 2012.  Watch this space and, if you get a chance, extend congrats to Kim.
