Details of zTechnically Speaking in the UK

2012 zTechnically Speaking is a stream in the November IBM Smarter Computing conferences
which you and your colleagues in your organisation are invited to register and attend.

Roger Fowler/ Iain Neville from the IBM UK Hardware Technical Team will be covering the
recently announced zEnterprise zEC12 hardware which is a key part of IBM’s Smarter Computing
revolution. It is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to understand these recent announcements.

At the Manchester and Edinburgh events Jeff Biamonte will give an insight on zEnterprise chip design,
manufacture, direction and futures. Jeff is the Manager for the System z Processor Design & Verification
Group based at the IBM  Poughkeepsie, USA manufacturing plant.

At the London event Howard Rogers from Tesco will provide an insight to their 2012 zEnterprise
hardware refresh  replacing all their Escon connections with Ficon while keeping their legacy Escon equipment.

Speakers from IBM's z Software technical team will explain how recent IBM software announcements enable IBM middleware to exploit the new zEC12 technology to deliver data analytics and cloud services, with even greater security. 

During the breaks and lunch there will be a chance to see live zEnterprise systems and talk to experts
from IBM Software and Hardware Groups.  These events are planned to start around 9am and finish around 4:30pm. Agendas will be sent to registered attendees nearer the time.

I look forward to meeting you at a z Technically Speaking stream. These events are very popular so please register today to secure a place at your preferred location.
