Total Solution Event for System z - September 27-29

Last week there was the GSE Regional Conference for Belgium in Spa around the central theme of 'Hybrid Computing'. It was really a very good conference with lots of interesting presentations, like the one from Andrew Butler of Gartner with a very positive view on the 'Mainframe in Tomorrow's Enterprise'. Who told you Gartner wants every one off the mainframe ? We also got a good view of IBM's strategy on hybrid systems and on what they have realized so far. An interesting panel discussion also indicated how important it is to have architects working at an enterprise level. Architects who must have a broad general view on different technologies and of course also on mainframe technologies.

That's why I would encourage you to also send your architects to the IBM Total Solution Event for System z on September 27-29, 2011 at the IBM Forum in Brussels. It's free and there are a couple of general tracks especially for them. Here's an overview of the different tracks :
