IBM Systems Magazine Hits the Road for the IBM Symposia
By Mike Westholder
Unlike many IBM events that focus on a single line of hardware, this one will bring together IBM experts on System z, Power Systems, AIX, IBM i, Storage, PureSystems, etc., under one roof with sessions covering the gamut of IBM technology. As a content publisher, it’s a great opportunity to learn the latest in terms of hardware, software and OSs, database technology and more, all at once.
Kicking things off at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 8, will be keynote speaker Terry Keene, the CEO of iSys, who will explain “The State of the Data Center—Where IT is Headed and How to Set the Agenda First.”
In addition to attending sessions, meeting with business partners and IBMers, IBM Systems Magazine staffers will host a booth in the Solution Center over the lunch hours and the early evenings (5:30-7:30 p.m.) on May 8 and 9. Before experiencing the New Orleans nightlife, stop by and share your thoughts about article topics or ways we can improve the magazine, enewsletters and website. Sign up for a free subscription to our print, digital or enewsletter content. And if you’re tired of lugging around tchotchkes from vendor booths, you can pick up one of our stylish bags.
