Besides the massive world events that are taking place and creating history, there are many other events taking place in the month of March in the Information Management area that you may wish to know about.
First of all, you likely know that today is Pi Day. OK, now you know I’m a geek :)
Second, IBM’s Centennial. SVP Robert LeBlanc came and spoke to the employees of the Toronto Lab this morning. He’s on an executive campus tour to tell people about the innovation that IBM has been part of in the past 100 years and encouraged us with his prediction that the next 100 years will also entail incredible innovation. If you haven’t seen the centennial videos yet, I suggest you do. They are well done and very motivating.
Next, there are two chats with the lab this month. One for Informix and another for DB2:
For DB2 for z/OS, there is also a webinar that sounds interesting:
There are two final episodes remaining in the “DB2’s Got Talent” Competition. Last Friday we had the second of the 4 finalist episodes and there are still 7 contestants. During the finalist episodes, it is you, the audience, who will “vote” for the winners. Make sure you watch the replays and cast your vote. The talent and tips we’ve seen over the past 6 weeks have been incredible.
On a personal note, it is March Break this week, so kids are out of school,
Saint Patty’s Day is this week and I’ll be visiting NYC to celebrate, and I have
a birthday coming. Is it this busy every March??
Have fun :)
