How to Respond to a Request for IBM InfoSphere Information Server v11.3 Training
Information Server v11.3, which was released at the end of June 2014, follows the release of Information Server v9.1. Some Information Server products and components have significantly changed in v11.3. Others remain the same as v9.1 or have been enhanced with some additional features, but work the same with respect to all of their v9.1 features and functionality. For our v9.1 training courses that continue to be valid for v11.3 (because there are no changes in the v11.3 product that affect the training) we plan on using our new KM650 "New Features in Information Integration and Governance v11.3" to fully prepare students for v11.3. For Information Server products and components that have significantly changed, we plan full updates to their v9.1 courses.
KM650 "New Features in Information Integration and Governance v11.3"
The new KM650 course covers the whole suite of products in Information Server v11.3 and MDM Server v11.3. It consists of single, modular units, each covering new features of one or more products in Information Server and MDM Server v11.3.
The KM650 course is a very special new type of course. It can be used to teach either a single unit or any number of units in the course in any ordering. You can easily create a custom version of the course that contains just those units your customer needs. Each unit is fully modular and independent of other units in the course. The course image provided with the course supports all the units.
The KM650 course is continually updated. New versions of the course are released with each new unit that is developed. To determine what units are currently available in the KM650 course now and in the future open the KM650 course package. The package file lists the current units. You can also view the Quick View documents to see the current table of contents. Be sure to check back each month or so to see what units have been added.
To Fully Prepare Customers for v11.3
For specific recommendations, see the chart below.
IF A CUSTOMER ASKS FOR A V11.3 TRAINING UPDATE: If a complete v11.3 update has been developed, recommend that course to the customer. If the v9.1 course is still valid, recommend adding a KM650 New Features Unit to the existing v9.1 course. For example, a customer asks for a v11.3 update of the DataStage Essentials course or one of the DataStage Advanced course. Recommend taking the v9.1 course along with the KM650 “New Features in DataStage v11.3” unit.
IF A CUSTOMER HAS A LOT OF EXPERIENCE WITH INFORMATION SERVER V9.1: Offer the customer a custom “New Features in Information Server v11.3” or “New Features in Data Governance v11.3” training class by selecting appropriate units from KM650. The KM650 course will eventually cover all the new features across the complete Information Server product suite. But please be aware that this use case requires a sufficient number of units in the course to have been developed.
IF A CUSTOMER IS LOOKING TO SUPPLEMENT AN EXISTING TRAINING CLASS WITH ADDITIONAL TOPICS: Supplement an existing training course with one or more KM650 units. For example, supplement a DataStage training course (Essentials or Advanced) with the KM650 “New Features in Data Click v11.3” unit. Or supplement an existing Information Server course with a unit discussing ways in which Information Server DataStage can be used to load data into an MDM Server database.
Please be aware that specific recommendations refer to future planned v11.3 courses and KM650 units as well as current courses and units.

It has come to our attention that there is some confusion about versions of the course materials (known as the ERC) and the version of the supporting lab virtual machine images for a course.

Have you read the Information Management articles on the IBM Training blog?
We are posting 3 types of articles on the IBM Training blog.
These articles will be posted monthly. The article will summarize recent changes within the Information Management portfolio. You will see itemized lists of courses (classroom and digital learning), certification tests, Skill Builder videos and Big Data University courses. These lists will be grouped under headings; New, Coming Soon, Retired, and Plan to Retire.
These articles will be published throughout the year. Each article will highlight a specific curriculum within the Information Management portfolio.
These articles will be published throughout the year either just prior to the course being release or shortly after. Each article will provide a course overview; explain why the course is important for skill development; identify the products covered by the course; provide a high level course structure; outline the course audience; outline that course pre-requisites; and itemize next steps for a student who takes this course.
Since the IBM Training blog includes many useful articles, we have assigned tags to each of our articles. This will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.

Hi, Instructors! Our course development team has documented a plan for how we would enable you on new materials. We have shared that plan with the GTP management last year, but it may be that plan is not getting to you, so I have posted the plan on this community.
Some clarifications of TLAs (Two-or-Three Letter Acronyms) found in the plan:
From the course development team, we want to provide resources to help you to get up-to-speed on teaching new and/or updated content. We will evaluate what kind of enablement is required based on the type of changes being done on the course. We will schedule the T3 and provide that information to our "brand focal" who will communicate it to the GTPs. We will also post the schedule in the course information here in the Instructor Community. Each GTP will be allocated seats for each T3; if you want to attend it "live", contact your GTP. After the T3 is completed, recordings will be posted in the CMV for your review.
I hope this helps in your understanding of what we have committed to do, and that you will help to keep us honest in our communication. We are trying to balance the time spent on T3s versus time spent on course development (it would be "nice" to do more T3s, but then we would not have any course updates!). Our ultimate goal is to ensure your success, so if you have thoughts on how to improve our process, please comment!

Welcome to the brand new Information Management Instructor Community!
I want to be the first to welcome you to our new home on developerWorks where we believe we can have a more social, collaborative relationship between instructors who are in the field teaching Information Management courses and the team of IBMers who plan, create, and maintain the materials you are teaching from.
We will of course use this community to 'push' information out to instructors that is relevant, but we are hopeful that this community will foster a two-way dialog between field instructors and our curriculum planners and developers. Your feedback from customer deliveries is critical to evolving and improving our offerings and we need your input more than ever now that we are expanding IBM Training around the world on a massive scale via our new Global Training Providers.
So take some time to get familiar with our new community and join the sub communities that are most relevant to your job role (the sub communities are where all the action is!). Don't forget to read the Getting Started article and don't hesitate to share your feedback (both positive and constructive) with me via the comments field below.
We will evolve the community over time to ensure that it meets your needs, the needs of my content development team, and of course ultimately ensures that our mutual customers are getting the best possible training experience.
