Dear IBM Z Friends,
Today’s IT is fast-paced and in constant evolution. There is a current trend to open IBM Z to interact with Cloud and distributed applications, which requires solutions providing end-to-end application availability to help clients maintain Service Level Agreements in a world of change.
Now it's time to do the next step towards an integrated Z Service Management platform and we would like to invite you to our next
European Operations Technical Conference (EOTC) in 2019 in the IBM Lab in Boeblingen, Germany.
The agenda includes news and updates for Z Automation (System Automation, NetView), Service Management Unite, the IBM Service Management Suite for z/OS, OMEGAMON, Workload Scheduler, and Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex (GDPS).
We will share with you our IBM Z Service Management Strategy and showcase recent offering updates. A key part of the conference will be design discussions, sharing best practices, and the possibility to have hands-on experience with our solutions.
EOTC 2019 conference dates: Monday, May 13th, 1pm CET to Thursday, May 16th, 2019, Noon.
Conference language will be English.
Call for Speakers: We encourage clients to submit user experience sessions. In exchange for a client presenting a breakout session, your registration fee will be waived.
Let us know if you have any questions or wish to discuss your session ideas.
At the moment we plan to have a conference fee € 350,00 for the entire conference. The fee will be charged to all attendees (except speakers!).
Non-GSE members have to pay an additional € 100,00 but if they decide to become a member in 2019 then this amount will be credited.
Prices are not yet completely fixed and may vary slightly in the future.
Travel, lodging and other expenses must be covered by the attendees (including speakers).
Please do extend this announcement to others within IBM and to customers and colleagues whom you deem appropriate.
As the EOTC 2018 really was a successful event I am sure that you will support me in the same great way you always did before. With the decision to make this early announcement I want to give you the chance to ask early for your travel approvals. Additionally, I am sure that you have plenty of time to collect your interesting project work into a presentation for the EOTC 2019.
If you plan to do a presentation, please send me your session titles, together with a small abstract and the planned duration as soon as possible. The agenda should be ready by end of January before the registration process will start. Keep in mind that if the agenda is filled the chance to get entrance to the conference without conference fee is gone!
Please send the internet mailing address and the company name of anyone who is interested and has not received this announcement to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will use this information to send the official invitations and registration information. Registrations for "unknown" customers will be rejected.
