IBMi CIO SummitJoin CIO peers and hosts Alan Seiden, Jon Paris, Susan Gantner and Paul Tuohy in Minneapolis in October for an exclusive, complimentary 2-day event focused on exploring ways to leverage your IBM i investment.

Participants will exchange tips and brainstorm ideas for addressing common challenges faced by IBM i CIOs and IT Directors — managing new technology, evaluating the cloud, hiring the right skills, delivering enhancements, integrations and new applications on time/on budget, and anything else attendees care to discuss.

Seating is limited and reserved for CIOs or IT Directors who manage application development. Request an invitation today!

DAY 1: Ideas & Problem-Solving at Capella Tower

Come enjoy the iconic Capella Tower while you network with other CIOs and participate in facilitated discussions about modern development practices — collaborative development, recruitment, young RPGers, open source and more. Alan Seiden leads the conversation, adding guest speakers and lessons from his own experiences to supplement the experiences of the group.

You will have plenty of time to connect with your peers and pick our collective brains on any topic. No “sales pitch”…just a chance to create community and to learn.

DAY 2: Team Building at the RPG & DB2 Summit

On Tuesday, join other CIOs and your own developers for an optional day of strategy sessions and team-building at the RPG & DB2 Summit.

Gain valuable insight through management-oriented sessions and a CIO round-table discussion, led by Susan Gantner, Jon Paris and Paul Tuohy. Expand your professional network to include the leading technology experts. Connect with your developers over meals and breaks to share what you’ve learned, and relax together during the evening reception and banquet.
