Who Should Attend?

The IT Executive Conference is designed for senior-level managers and executives within their organizations, and who want to maximize their investment in IBM Power Systems. Due to the peer-to-peer nature of this conference, and shared best practices, we encourage like-minded executives to attend so that you may learn more about topics that affect your business and your career.

This conference is not for analysts and venture capitalists, in addition to sales, marketing and consulting staff from non-sponsoring vendor companies.

Why Attend the IT Executive Conference?

This is the most valuable conference I attend each year. I always take away at least one action item to try and implement over the next 12 months. The interaction with my peers helps to confirm or redirect my future efforts.

– 2019 Attendee

“First, the ITEC focuses predominantly, not exclusively, on IBM i activities, so it is “made to order” for those of us who use the “i” to help manage our enterprises and our IT activities.

Second, because it really is an “Executive Conference”, it is pegged at a higher level than, say, the gritty details of programming. Rather, it is aimed at considerations of the strategic uses of IT – how IT, and the “i” help senior management run business and educational institutions with the best technology tools available, and how the “i” is integrated into systems with other hardware and software products.

Third, ITEC brings together a group of business executives who have technology as part of their backgrounds, and as part of their responsibilities, so the back-and-forth exchanges of information and experiences are often as beneficial as the briefings we participants receive from IBM executives and technology experts. Also, depending on timing of announcements, we participants may receive confidential information regarding IBM future plans, which can help us shape our own IT planning activities.”
