Prevail 2021

Resilience is a more vital topic than ever as the challenges presented by COVID-19 have pushed many organizations beyond normal concerns around DevOps, cloud adoption or Agile methodologies. Cloud-based services are in high demand and expected to be fast, always on and secure.

We are proud to announce PREVAIL  2021. PREVAIL is a yearly follow-the-sun virtual event devoted to IT resilience, performance, security, quality testing and SRE.

PREVAIL is an IBM technical conference hosted by technical people for a technical audience. It is a safe space for technical people to talk about technical topics. Speakers are welcome from within IBM and IBM Business Partners, from Academia and also from other organizations including IBM’s competitors. All speakers should leave their badge at the door and present a talk that covers technical aspects of a technology, method or service that is important to them and is relevant to one of the Prevail tracks.

Please submit your abstracts in EasyChair :

Replays of the excellent keynotes, breakout sessions, panels, workshops and posters from subject matter experts delivered on last year’s conference are still available. Check out replays of last year’s sessions here.



PREVAIL is a cooperation of  the
IBM Academy of Technology,
the worldwide community for performance and
