If you’ve never been to an IBM Systems Technical University (TechU) before, come to Orlando April 30-May 4 and check it out. If you’ve been before, you know just how rich in technical content these events are. But if you think there’s nothing new for you to learn, think again. Here are 10 reasons why IBM Power techies should attend IBM TechU in Orlando!

  1. Attend some of the 36 sessions dedicated to AI and machine learning
  2. Get hands-on with machine learning, object detection and GPU
  3. Collaborate on AI projects with the IBM Data Science Experience

  4. If you haven’t started skilling up on AI and machine learning, the time is now. You’ll find practical use cases for things like facial recognition, medical image classification, object detection and handwritten character recognition.

  5. Discover what IBM’s Washington Systems Center learned from early client experience with POWER9
  6. Maximize your workloads' performance on POWER9 with the latest XL compilers
  7. Attend one of three sessions on PowerVM SR-IOV and vNIC on POWER9

  8. Power Systems innovations to modernize your IT infrastructure just keep coming. If you’re looking for performance improvements with POWER9, understanding the many private or public cloud deployment options with Power System from Vmware to Nutanix to OpenStack to IBM Cloud Private, or you want to deep dive on the features and functions in the new POWER9 Scale out systems, you’ll find it in one of the 23 POWER9 and 49 Cloud and Virtualization Track sessions.
