07.12.2018- Knock it out of the Park with POWER9 and iTech Solutions

Learn how your team can knock it out of the park with POWER9. Enjoy 9 innings following the presentation by iTech Solutions.

POWER9 is all about performance! With about 1.5 times the performance of a POWER8, this system is ready to help you knock the ball out of the park.

We’re offering our POWER9 roadshow at several minor league baseball suites over the summer to introduce our customers and prospects to the benefits of POWER9. We thought that it would be fun to enjoy 9 innings with you after the presentation, giving you a chance to network with our experts and other IBM i users.

Topics:

  • POWER9 Performance, Processing and more.
  • Difference between POWER7 and POWER9
  • IBM i Roadmap
  • Supporting your IBM i Environment

July 18 & 19 COMMON Virtual Conference http://www.common.org/events/virtual-conference/

IBM i Security – You aren’t as safe as you think.

Speaker: Phil Pearson

While the IBM i is known to be secureable, it isn’t secure out of the box.  In fact, there are many default options that leave you vulnerable to potential attacks. What can you do to secure your IBM i better?  What are the exposures and risks?  Phil will discuss the various security vulnerabilities that many IBM i customers are exposed to, and how you can protect yourself.

Basics of Testing for Programmers

Speaker: Yvonne Enselman

Designed for programmers, this session will help application developers deliver more reliable work product. While the need for testing and QA is widely accepted and embraced, it can be difficult to achieve in smaller IT departments where one professional wears many hats. Whether you are your own QA or you want to bulletproof your unit testing prior to hand off, you will learn how to improve your own work product.

Rapid Fire Admin

Speaker: Steve Pitcher

This overflowing session is designed to help ensure every IBM i administrator and operator has at least a backpack full of valuable tips for use at the office. From command line to shell to IBM Navigator for i, Steve will sprint through these tips at a pace of at least two tips per minute – at least 150 tips! This session is updated quarterly with new and relevant information, so you keep up with the updates IBM releases on a regular basis while still reviewing foundational tips.

Testimonials

“When we needed to upgrade our IBM Power System from version 5.4 to 7.1, we chose to use iTech Solutions because of their knowledge and wide experience in upgrading IBM Power Systems. Everything was carefully planned before the upgrade. The upgrade went as planned and a few minor problems were quickly resolved. We are fully satisfied with the entire process and will again at any time choose to use iTech Solutions.”
