Full Calendar of iSeries Events

March 26 -- Webinar - We're all part of the IBM i community, but statistically the community is not well defined. It's a mystery why we don't have a better picture of who we are. What's been missing is a census, an accounting of what the community looks like and thinks about. Steps in that direction has taken place with the IBM i Marketplace survey. During this webinar results from the survey (350 IBM i shops) will be discussed by industry experts Timothy Prickett Morgan, Ian Jarman, Alison Butterill, and Tom Huntington. They'll be discussing topics such as the most needed IT initiatives, which projects are already under way at most shops, future IT planning with or without the IBM i, and perceptions regarding return on investment. All webinar attendees will receive a copy of the IBM Marketplace survey. The event begins at 10 a.m. Central Time. LEARN MORE >
