Richie Palma and Yvonne Enselman Advocate for the Future of IBM i in IBM Systems Magazine
iTech Solutions’ team members Richie Palma and Yvonne Enselman have been featured in the November 2018 issue of IBM Systems Magazine, advocating for developing young talent and women in the IBM i community.
Richie Palma, who is an IBM i Tech Solutions Consultant at iTech Solutions and IBM Champion for Power Systems, is a younger member of the IBM i community himself. In the article, Developing the Future, he expressed the need to encourage young new IBM i developers.
“Retirement is bringing in new people and new ideas to IBM i shops. People are starting to ask, ‘Why not?’ instead of ‘Why change?’”, Palma said.

While the need for young professionals in the IBM i community is growing, the need to bring more women into Power System centered careers is growing as well.
“It’s up to all of us to bring the next generation, which will be 50 percent women, into our thoughts and share our knowledge.”, Enselman said.
