New in 2012 - IBM Technical World for Smarter Computing!
Designed for data, Tuned to the Task and Managed with Cloud Technologies
We are living in a world of change. Information technology is changing and touches every aspect of our lives. Power grids, traffic control, healthcare, water supplies, food and energy, along with the global financial transactions, all depend on information technology. We are creating a vast amount of data through the internet, this information based on today computational advances and analytics we can use this data to make better decisions.
We have the ability to cut costs, improve productivity, and the quality of our lives - this creates value. This data is real time and can provide insights into our companies, cities, education and healthcare to list a few. This data helps us see patterns and correlations - this is the Smarter Planet.
This event will be the host of the new IBMSmartCloud Symposium, IBM Power Systems Technical Symposium and IBM System z Technical Symposium. Over the course of four days IT executives, managers and professionals will get an in-depth look into the transformation of IT infrastructures needed to meet the demands of a smarter planet. Attendees will explore breakthrough technologies and hear how successful enterprises are responding to dramatic increases in data and demands for new workloads by adapting their existing IT infrastructures while meeting demands for new services and greater service quality.
The dynamic agenda of sessions will include:

If you did not get a chance to attend the IBM Power Systems Technical University or the IBM System z Technical University in 2011, IBM Technical World for Smarter Computing in April is your chance to update and refresh your skills. The shorter versions of the Technical Universities will focus on smarter computing implementation, recent product updates, as well as, key topics across the Power Systems and System z platforms.
The IBMSmartCloud Symposium is a new event in 2012. This event will cover basics such as understanding cloud computing, the benefits and the concerns, as well as, cloud implementations, financial cost efficiencies and Return on Investment (ROI).
IBM Technical World for Smarter Computing is a great oppurtunity to understand how successful enterprises are responding to dramatic increases in data and demands for new workloads by adapting their IT Power Systems and System z infrastructure, as well as, enabling cloud technologies.
Rethink IT. Reinvent Business.
Join us for the 2012 IBM SmartCloud Technical Symposium, April 16-19 2012, in San Francisco, California. This event will introduce Cloud Computing’s disruptive potential to not only reduce cost and complexity but reinvent the way we do business. Over the course of four days, there will be sessions that define cloud computing and discuss transformative benefits and challenges to consider while sharing specific, proven patterns of success. We will provide proven methods to get started on the Cloud journey from the up-front investments to capacity planning. This event will cover the technology behind private and public clouds whether you choose to build your own, leverage prepackaged solutions or have it delivered as a service. Leading experts will cover the implementation of these technologies as well as best practices around security, virtualization, performance, automation and management. We will help you: design, deploy and consume.
