International Power 2012

Returning to London for the second year is the IBM i & Power themed one day conference brought to you in association with COMMON GB / NiSUG User Group.

Independent experts from Europe and the United States will be delivering sessions on PHP, RPG, Modernisation, Security, Mobile, Power, everything to to do with IBM-i and Power Systems! Four session tracks will be available for delegates, Technical, Strategy, IBM & Lab, and Solution Tracks. More information can be found on the “Agenda” page on this site.

The Keynote: Come and listen to one of the most iconic user presentations we have ever had at a COMMON GB event as Mats Lidstrom relates the journey of developing and implementing the huge ICE Copyright database. At ICE, Mats has set the IT strategy and has been leading the data modeling and the overall technical application solution for the Music Copyright application that was built from scratch using PHP, RPG and Power-i.

Workshop: New to the schedule will be a workshop titled “Upgrade 5.x to 7.1, Simple, Quick, Worth it! ” which will be delivered by COMMON GB’s very own technical director Steve Bradshaw. The main aim of the workshop is to clear up much of the Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt that has arisen in recent times over IBM i Upgrades in general and the move from V5.4 in particular and by doing so you’ll maintain a supported platform. Don’t forget your notebook!

Mobile App Showcase: The mobile app showcase “App-i-Days” will be one of the highlights of the event and you will be able to dip in and out to see how a series of major vendors deliver IBM i functionality to mobile devices. If you are looking at mobile applications for your company you could save yourself a lot of time just visiting the Showcase.

The original Mi-Pint evening is back! After the last session of the day join your fellow i-series/power peers, speakers and vendor solution providers in the FREE social network evening Mi-Pint. Beer, wine, soft drinks and hot finger food will be served to delegates while they discuss the hot topics of the day.

The International Power Conference is FREE to all members of COMMON GB/NiSUG User Group and all members who attend the event will have a chance to win a New iPad (3rd Gen) 16GB WiFi model, courtesy of Rowton IT Solutions.
