This year’s IBM POWER event took place at Munkebjerg Hotel, August 27-28. The event gathered more than 140 industry leaders, IBM partners and IBM customers.
At the event the new POWER9 technology was launched as well as new high-end servers. The Munkebjerg event completes the transition from the POWER8 family and into the POWER9 and beyond.
IBM was well represented and celebrated their 30 year birthday this year (official day was 21st of June).
It is quite unique in the IT industry that customers can benefit of 30 years of innovation on the same platform: “30 years of innovation and we are just getting started”.
At Munkebjerg, several customer cases were also presented. Arla and NNIT demonstrated the benefits they have experienced by moving their SAP HANA environment from Intel’s x86 architecture to IBM POWER.
