CIO Summit — March 23-24, 2020 in Dallas

Join your IT executive peers and host Alan Seiden for the next IBM i CIO Summit “Plus”—an exclusive event focused on exploring ways to leverage your IBM i investment, improve user satisfaction, and achieve greater professional success.

Organized together with System i Developer’s Susan Gantner, Jon Paris, and Paul Tuohy, this complimentary, non-commercial event will be held March 23-24, 2020 in Dallas, TX.

Participants will exchange tips and brainstorm ideas for addressing common challenges faced by IBM i CIOs and IT Directors—managing new technology; hiring the right skills; keeping IT aligned with business; getting started with modernization; blending development teams from different generations; evaluating cloud options; managing expectations; and other topics.

An executive from IBM will be onsite to brief the group on the future of IBM i and answer questions.

Seating is limited and reserved for CIOs or IT Directors who oversee application development and work for companies that are not technology vendors (although we love IBM i vendors!)
