My name is Paul Godby and I’m an IBM Certified* Senior IT Specialist. I currently work on the IBM Watson Developer Cloud APIs for our ISV & Developer Relations team.
My job is to help the IBM business partner community bring new cognitive capabilities to their applications using IBM software. My responsibilities include providing consultations, application development support, code samples, and free education to the partners.
Previously, I spent 15 years working on IBM Collaboration Solutions (ICS) software with a focus on IBM Connections and the IBM Connections Cloud. I spent most of this time on the ICS Worldwide Technical Sales team. In this pre-sales role, I helped client technical professionals remove any remaining technical barriers to potential sales.
I joined IBM in 2000. Prior to joining IBM, I spent a year at an engineering firm writing software to communicate with Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) based automation systems.
