Join your IT executive peers and host Alan Seiden for the next IBM i CIO Summit “Plus”—an exclusive event focused on exploring ways to leverage your IBM i investment, improve job satisfaction, and achieve greater professional success.
Organized together with System i Developer’s Susan Gantner, Jon Paris, and Paul Tuohy, this complimentary, non-commercial event will be held October 1-2, 2018 in Chicago.
Participants will exchange tips and brainstorm ideas for addressing common challenges faced by IBM i CIOs and IT Directors—managing new technology; hiring the right skills; delivering enhancements, integrations and new applications faster; getting started with modernization; evaluating cloud options; managing expectations; and many other topics.
Seating is limited and reserved for CIOs or IT Directors who have responsibility for application development. Request an invitation or nominate an IT executive below.
DAY 1: Ideas & Problem Solving at the CIO Summit
CIOs gather in downtown Chicago with Alan for a day of facilitated discussions on the opportunities and challenges they share as CIOs. Participants will get to know each other, share insights, and learn what strategies have worked well for one another. They will also learn about the next generation of IBM i talent.
Special guest Scott Forstie, IBM’s Db2 for i Business Architect, will share his vision of Db2 for i and lead a discussion on how others have used IBM i database capabilities as an innovative driver of competitive advantage. This article explains how Scott anticipates future needs to deliver important—and often unexpected—capabilities.
The first day’s event will take place at the Mid-America Club on the 80th floor of the Aon Center, adjacent to Millennium Park. It will include lunch and is offered at no charge, compliments of Seiden Group.
“Well worthwhile. I walked away with actionable items and plenty of fuel for ongoing thought.” Brian Margolies, CIO, Allied Beverage
