Didn’t want to leave on vacation without giving you a quick preview of our next Ariba Business Commerce Expert Series --Xtreme  Collaborative Business Commerce Strategies,  to be held on July 21 at 11am PST. But… let me introduce you first to one of our speakers: Robert Calvert, B2B Integration Program Manager from Hewlett-Packard.


Robert is a leading visionary in the development and implementation of end-to-end Business-to-Business Integration (B2Bi) strategies for customers and partners. As an experienced industry veteran, Robert is routinely invited to lecture on the value and benefits of business commerce and integration strategies and has been recognized recently for his immense contribution to his field, receiving Ariba’s Excellence Award in 2011.


As B2Bi Program Manager, Robert oversees all aspects of the B2Bi corporate model he built for HP’s US division—including the strategy, justification, product management, deployment, customer integration, and much more. In addition, Robert also received the HP Americas Winners Circle award for 2011 and is Black Belt Lean Six Sigma certified.
