Columbia, SC - Registration for the second Connections event, Connections 2014, is now open as hosts IT-oLogy and Connect South Carolina prepare to share advances in hardware, software, infrastructure, and processes across a variety of industries and highlight efforts to increase broadband access, adoption, and use. Garima Prasai, chief evangelist for the IBM Watson Group, has been confirmed as the event's first presenter.

Garima joined IBM in June 2013 and has been involved in the launch efforts of Watson's first commercial product offering, Watson Engagement Advisor, and has been involved in market development and sales.

Garima is also a member of IBM's Blue Spark team, a millennial leadership development program under Mike Rhodin. Garima works with IBM's research and executive teams to leverage cognitive technology to solve complex business challenges and deliver real competitive advantage for clients globally.
