Three reasons to attend IBM Systems Technical University in Rome

Share this post:

IBM Systems Technical University (TechU) in Rome is just around the corner. If you joined me at our recent TechU in Prague, you know these events deliver IBM’s most comprehensive IT infrastructure training. The feedback I received from attendees confirms that TechU is time well spent. Our next TechU in Rome offers the same in-depth lectures and labs, with new and updated content. Here’s a video clip to give you a taste of what you can expect in Rome.

Still not convinced that IBM TechU in Rome is for you? Then check out my top three reasons you should soon be saying, “Buongiorno, Roma!”

Your time is valuable; use it wisely

There are many ways to learn about new IBM products and to grow your skills. You can watch a webinar. You can read an IBM Redbooks publication. You can read an expert’s blog post. You can ask colleagues to share presentations they received by attending a TechU. And, of course, you can always just Google it!

These learning methods can be time consuming, especially when you’re still fully engaged in your nine-to-five job. Plus, how you can be sure that the material you found is accurate? And what if you have questions?

The answer is simple. Attend the IBM TechU in Rome, where you have five days dedicated to growing your skills and learning the latest IBM product news. IBM Distinguished Engineers, developers and product experts will be on hand to answer all your questions.

Dig deep with training tracks tailored to technology areas that are important to you

TechU Rome offers 400-plus lectures and labs across 22 tracks. You can browse the Agenda Preview Tool and filter by track or brand to see the breadth and depth of sessions. If you want to exercise your right brain, be sure to check out the IT leadership track.

Meet and mingle with your peers and the technology gurus of the IBM Systems community

Building a professional network is a smart career move. IBM TechU Rome provides many opportunities to exchange ideas and business cards with your fellow IT pros and IBM Business Partners. Plus, you can learn firsthand from members of the IBM Systems community. Discover the tips and tricks they’ve learned from client implementations. The Solution Center showcases some of these solutions, plus new IBM and Business Partner offerings.

So, enroll today for IBM TechU in Rome, October 22 to 26. I hope to meet you there!
