        Free forum includes open discussion with Steve Will —

     

    CIO and IT Director “friends of MMSA” are invited to the next IBM i CIO Summit, March 19-20, 2018, right here in Dallas.

     

    Organized by IBM Champions Alan Seiden, Susan Gantner, Jon Paris, and Paul Tuohy, this complimentary, non-commercial event provides a confidential forum for executive-level IT professionals to meet each other and explore ways to leverage their IBM i applications, improve job satisfaction, and achieve greater professional success.

     

    Special guest Steve Will, IBM i Chief Architect, will join the group on March 19 for lunch and a private discussion on the direction of IBM i. On March 20, he will present Game On!  IBM i — From Strategy to Reality and converse with attendees at meals and an evening reception.

     

    To date, just over half of the available seats have been reserved by IT executives from industries such as insurance, finance, food and manufacturing.

     

    The first day of the CIO Summit, held in the executive boardroom at the Tower Club in Dallas, will feature open discussions—facilitated by Alan Seiden—on topics of interest to the group. Conversation will be supplemented by brief talks on select topics such as staffing, how to attract young RPG developers, and IBM i direction.

     

    On the optional second day, CIO guests can join their developers at the RPG & DB2 Summit. The March 20 agenda includes sessions on such topics as IBM i development strategies and direction; a roundtable discussion on Future-Proofing Your IBM i Investment with Jon Paris, Susan Gantner, Paul Tuohy, and Alan Seiden; time to network with other CIOs and Steve Will; and opportunities to socialize and brainstorm with developers in an environment where leading development experts can answer questions on the spot.

                  

    The CIO Summit is a free, by-invitation-only event open to a limited number of CIOs or IT Directors whose IT staff includes developers.

     

    For additional information and to request an invitation or nominate your CIO for the event, visit http://www.seidengroup.com/ibmi-cio-summit, or email Seiden Group.
