IBM workshop up for grabs

March 6, 2012 • Events, Top Stories

During ITNewsAfrica’s next Innovation Dinner, IBM will give one lucky Innovation Dinner attendee the opportunity to participate in IBM’s one-day Cloud Exploration Workshop for free. This workshop is valued at approximately R45 000.

The next IT News Africa Innovation Dinner will focus on Cloud Strategies for Business

The Cloud Exploration Workshop is based upon a set of proven techniques to allow clients to identify their highest priority cloud workloads, define strategic gaps, and develop roadmaps and recommendations to build cloud solutions.
The workshop will be of huge benefit to the winner, as after the completion of the workshop, a series of analytic views are generated and used to develop recommendations and select project roadmaps for closing the identified gaps for high priority cloud workloads.

It will also provide IBM clients with a common understanding of the dimensions of cloud; gain a better understanding of the prioritization of various workloads for cloud; and provide an overview of how a Return On Investment is achieved through cloud adoption.

The Innovation Dinner series (view images from past dinners here) has become well known among South Africa’s ICT professionals, entrepreneurs and senior business people as a great opportunity for networking and strategic planning.

ITNewsAfrica, together with key sponsor IBM, will usher in the next Innovation Dinner at the Michelangelo Hotel and Towers in Sandton on the 8th of March 2012.

Brett St Clair, Google’s Head of New Products and Solutions for Sub Saharan Africa, will chair the event and the confirmed speakers are Werner Lindemann, Vice President for IBM Global Technology Services in Sub-Saharan Africa, Tammy Bortz, Director at Werksmans Inc, and Gordon Love, Regional Director for Africa at Symantec.
