Following, Matt Whitbourne, Program Director and Offering Lead for IBM Z Hardware, will discuss how the strategy and execution of the Z Hardware platform is formulated by working with clients around the world to ensure that the next Z platform solution is able to meet market needs and deliver differentiated value as clients continue their journey to hybrid and multi cloud.

In this half-day workshop, they present IBM’s strategy for digital transformation and commitment to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud.  They then build on the proven qualities of the IBM Z platform – superior performance, resiliency, and security – by expanding the conversation to include Linux and container technology.  They present the technical and competitive advantages of running Linux and containers on Z compared to commodity servers, for traditional business workloads (e.g., core banking) but also for transformational workloads (e.g., cloud-native) running in a hybrid multi-cloud environment.

The workshop is designed for IT managers and architects who are in a position to help influence infrastructure decisions for their business, and who are looking to exploit one of the best possible platforms on which to run enterprise Linux applications of today and tomorrow. Come learn about IBM’s Linux and Cloud strategy, and how IBM Z running Linux will help you transform your business and generate greater value.
