Learn How to Increase Agility and Simplify Management with Hybrid Cloud at TechU

TechU Atlanta
The ability to respond with speed and agility have become paramount in today’s IT business climate. Companies and organizations are looking for hybrid cloud to extend their IT capability and artificial intelligence (AI) to grow their business services. We have a great set of offerings and services to help build your skills and guide you through the complexity and rapidly changing technology landscape on your journey to cloud and AI.
The first IBM Systems Technical University in the U.S. this year is April 29-May 3 in Atlanta, Georgia at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. There will be over 242 Power Systems sessions and labs where you’ll learn how to simplify IT complexity and accelerate your journey to enterprise AI. 
Here are three key sessions you’ll want to add to your conference agenda for the week:
You Asked for it: On-Demand Access to AIX, IBM i and Linux on Power Systems in the IBM Cloud 
Speakers: Shamsundar Ashok, Andrew Thorstensen, Alise Spence, Jose Paez 
Thousands of Power Systems clients who rely on AIX and IBM i to run their business have not had access to an on-demand, pay-for-use, global Tier 1 cloud for these services—until now. In this session, you’ll get the details on these exciting new offerings for AIX, IBM i and Linux on Power Systems in the IBM public cloud. The team behind these offerings will walk you through leveraging the cloud for your deployment and test workloads, and migrating on-prem workloads to the cloud. 
Implementing Watson Machine Learning Accelerator using the IBM POWER-Up Toolkit 
Speaker: Glen Corneau    
IBM Watson Machine Learning Accelerator (formerly PowerAI Enterprise) combines popular open source deep learning frameworks and accelerated servers to deploy a fully optimized and supported AI platform. Bringing new IBM Power Systems AC922 servers into your environment to start your enterprise AI journey involves a lot of new technology. This session reviews the IBM POWER-Up toolkit that makes gathering requisites and implementing Watson Machine Learning Accelerator simple. 
Cut Deployment Time with Shared Storage Pools and PowerVC
Speaker: Alan Fulton   
Shared Storage Pools on Power Systems simplify cloud management and efficiency of storage usage. In this session, IBM Champion for Power Systems Alan Fulton from Fiserv will show you how to cut deployment time from months to minutes on AIX, IBM i and Linux virtual machines with Shared Storage Pools and PowerVC.
Don’t forget to stop by the IBM Power Systems booth within the expo hall from Monday through Wednesday during the conference to see the newest POWER9 enterprise and accelerated servers, speak with IBM Systems Lab Services technical experts and learn about our capabilities with cloud, SAP HANA, and enterprise AI.
