NHMUG presents Pete Massiello
Pete Massiello presents the iTech Soloutions POWER8 & IBM i 7.2 Roadshow on Thursday December 18, 2014
Antique, vintage, second-hand, and used… Those are words that come to my mind when I hear “Roadshow”. The iTech Solutions POWER8™ & IBM i 7.2 Roadshows are none of those things. These Roadshows are about what is new and exciting with the IBM POWER8 servers and the latest level of the OS. If you are still running any of the vintage Power5 or Power6 servers these Roadshow presentations will have everything you need to know about how the new POWER8 servers can vastly improve your operating environment and reduce costs.
Pete Massiello of iTech Solutions will present multiple sessions at this roadshow location. The first session covers the IBM POWER8 servers and how they can significantly improve your organizations processing capabilities.
