IBM will host the first zEnterprise Summit for 2014 at the Marriott in Washington, DC on January 21st (next Tuesday!)  I encourage you to attend f you are in the area and your schedule allows.  Your biggest challenge will be figuring out which of the many sessions to attend.  The announcement information is below; the complete agenda and registration are on the IBM website here.  I hope to see you there.


New technology is stretching IT budgets in many directions, forcing IT to find better ways of meeting business demands in increasingly complex data centers. With enterprise technology from IBM, you can continue to advance and close the gaps between where you are and where you want to be.

Attend the IBM zEnterprise Technology Summit and you’ll come away with plenty of valuable information that will help you continue your own trek to the summit.   We’ll show you how the unique capabilities of zEnterprise solutions fit into an enterprise private cloud, how integrated analytics can support better decision-making and new choices for delivering services faster and with more flexibility.

At the full-day zEnterprise Technology Summit, you’ll learn from real-world scenarios, live demonstrations and in-depth presentations. We’ll discuss many “out of the box” benefits in the zEnterprise portfolio of products, with practical tips, best practices and guidance on major topics of concern to IT professionals, as well as developing long-term strategies for implementing what you learn in this seminar.

Led by IBM experts, these sessions cover a wide range of topics, including: Is your enterprise ready for the mobile revolution?  Getting the most from big data and the DB2® Analytics Accelerator  The DevOps approach to building quality applications at maximum efficiency  CICS® V5.1: Scalability and availability for a mobile world  Demonstrating governance, risk and compliance on your mainframe   Today’s leading global businesses rely on System z. Its proven strengths – availability, security, flexibility, manageability and recoverability – are unmatched. zEnterprise expands on that foundation by driving innovation in application development, enterprise performance and overall productivity. Don’t miss this opportunity to see how much you have to gain.
