Frequently Asked Questions

This virtual conference is titled "iADMIN". Does that mean this is only for System Administrators?

Nope! We'd like anyone and everyone to join who works with IBM i or IBM Power Systems.

Topics will be focused on helpful tips surrounding Cloud, High Availability, Access Client Solutions, NVMe, POWER9 Hardware, Storage, and more.

Do I need to register for the sessions I plan to attend?

One registration will give you access to all sessions. There will be smaller breakout sessions that will require to reserve a seat. But for now, only one registration is necessary.

Absolutely not. Our goal is to provide educational content to the IBM i community. This event is no cost to you.
