Help/Systems Takes Power7 Trends And Tech Tour On The Road
September 16, 2013 Timothy Prickett Morgan
IBM and the major user groups like COMMON are not the only ones that bring together experts and users to talk about technology and business trends as they relate to shops who use Power Systems iron. Help/Systems, which is very likely the largest independent software vendor in the IBM i marketplace and which has been expanding into Unix and Linux in recent years, is taking its Power7 Trends and Tech show on the road, possibly to a city near you.
Tom Huntington, who is vice president of technical services at Help/Systems, will be hosting four events to go over IBM’s most recent announcements and how they affect your shop, as well as talking about best practices in management in complex IT environments. Huntington is also at these events to listen to shops, to try to figure out what they need and how this might affect his company’s own products roadmaps as well as those of Big Blue.
The first event will be hosted this week in Waltham, Massachusetts on September 17, to be followed up on September 19 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; October 8 in Troy, Michigan; and on October 10 in Dallas, Texas. “We had three successful events this past spring in Minneapolis, Chicago, and Hackensack,” said Huntington in an announcement outlining the four new dates. “IT experts in each market have been so appreciative for the opportunity to discuss these new technologies from IBM and network with their peers.” The events are biz casual and have free lunch. So don’t ever let anyone tell you there is no such a thing as a free lunch.
