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.”
