IBM Systems Magazine, Power Systems - December 2017 - 5
Are You Ready to Think?
ou've likely been wondering, "What happened to the IBM EDGE event?" For
many years running, the conference provided a place to meet others who, like
you, were running their businesses with confidence through IBM Systems infrastructure, OSes and storage. Well, I want to reassure you that we're still committed to
our clients and their IT infrastructure, which is precisely why in 2018, we're changing
the way we do conferences. We've listened to client feedback and have simplified
the event into one that you won't want to miss! We're combining our key conferences
into one premiere event where thinkers, inventors and leaders come together to
discuss solutions to address the world's IT challenges and opportunities. We welcome
you to join us March 19-22 in Las Vegas at Think 2018 (ibm.co/2sMbbPx).
The IBM Power Systems* platform will be front and center at
Think 2018. You'll have the benefit of seeing first hand what's new
with Cognitive and Systems at our
exclusive Systems Campus. It will
be your chance to learn about the
latest infrastructure innovations,
plus you'll get access to emerging technology, industry-leading
products and sneak peeks of
next-generation IBM Systems
products, including POWER9*.
Think 2018 will be much
more interactive than any IBM
event you've attended before.
Sessions will feature both internal and external thought leaders,
innovators, clients, and partners highlighting the industry's
hottest topics such as cognitive
aware systems, machine learning/deep learning, security,
hybrid and multicloud strategies,
and getting the most out of your
data. This is in addition to think
tank sessions and hands-on
demos. Think will be a truly
immersive learning event-and a
lot of fun networking as well!
We know infrastructure is
one of your most important
investments and we want to
"All the problems
of the world could
be settled easily if
mankind were only
willing to think."
-Thomas J. Watson, CEO of IBM
provide you with the tools to
make the most of these investments. The more you modernize
and optimize your infrastructure
and data center operations, the
better prepared you'll be to take
advantage of emerging technologies like blockchain, machine
learning and deep learning to
transform your business. At
Think, you'll get insight into how
to more efficiently manage your
day-to-day operations, as well as
how you can help prepare your
organization for what's next.
As you and your organization
plan for the coming year, be sure
to include Think 2018 on your
must-attend conference list! Get
ready to "think" about how your
infrastructure can help change
your organization and the world.
The Power Systems team and
I look forward to seeing you there
IBM will continue to invest in
technical training events such as the
IBM Systems Technical Universities.
