Join us for an exciting and informative event!

You are cordially invited to the Philadelphia IBM Z Customer Council; a community built to strengthen and support Philadelphia area IBM Z clients. As we understand your challenges, we will share experiences, deliver expert guidance, and provide a network of executives focused on the success of your IBM Z system environments.

We’ll kick off the session with our workshop on the IT Economics Linux on IBM Z. Emily Farmer, Alex Feinberg, and Mark Moore, will 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

Then, Dan Wiegand will discuss Proactive IT Operations with Watson Machine Learning. System outages cost enterprises more than $1 billion every year. To meet the business challenges of delivering services in today’s digital economy, IT operations can no longer simply monitor and react to situations in a war room. Learn how IBM is making enterprises successful in adopting new AI capabilities to better understand their environments and proactively identify issues in advance of their occurrence.

Following, Richard Hornor, Offering Manager for IBM Z Hardware, will discuss the market entering a new chapter in cloud and digital.  What is going to really matter is the ability to integrate both traditional systems with new systems.  Learn about how IBM is extending IBM Z as the industry-leading platform for mission critical hybrid cloud, with new innovations across security, data privacy, and resiliency event.
