  • In past sessions we have heard that, it is often difficult to “sell” System z inside your own company. The System z platform is very powerful and can provide robust enterprise solutions to many of today’s urgent and emerging business problems (two examples are cloud, health care solutions). In most cases, the z platform is already there but because of old perceptions it isn’t being considered for new applications, solutions and workloads. This session will be a discussion of those issues. It’s an opportunity to hear from your peers about their stumbling blocks and how they succeeded. We will provide information on about some of real world issues in selling Z inside your company. Together we will all discuss and discover the techniques resources and tools to help you and help your company take advantage of the platform. In addition to helping you, it will help IBM understand your challenges so we can help you.
