COMMON members and IBM i professionals in general are the most sharing and helpful group in the IT field. COMMON gives the IBM i community the best opportunities to keep up to date with all the latest changes and new information coming out of IBM and its related vendors. It's one of our most valuable resources.

COMMON is an important part of the IBM i community. It is invaluable to have access to world class education and the opportunity to connect with colleagues. One constant about a career in IT is change. Technology constantly changes and always will. Staying current is key and significantly impacts an organization being able to provide staff the tools necessary to do their jobs well and to accomplish the organization's goals and objectives. COMMON offers IT professionals what no other source does and can.

The COMMON spring conference, POWERUp™ 2019, was both career changing and amazing. This was my first time to a COMMON event and I was blown away. You have created a wonderful community of members and instructors who freely gave their time and knowledge to answer my questions and advise me on my projects. If you work with IBM Power Systems, then this will be the greatest investment you can make. I will see you in Tampa for POWERUp™ 2020!
