IBM z16 Day SE

When I first stepped into the world of IBM community last month, I was a neophyte to enterprise computing but keen to learn about the technology sector and innovation.

What I learned was pretty unexpected, to say the least. Aside from finding out that IBM is the backbone of the world’s leading businesses (did you know that IBM is behind 87% of all credit card transactions? But that’s another story for another day), what surprised me was that IBM z16 is for everyone and anyone who has an interest in technology. I was under the impression that the platform was for experienced users only but I couldn’t be more wrong. Sure, there’s a huge group of dedicated IBM z16 users and fans but it’s way more than that.

So leading up to IBM z16 Day SE (Special Edition), I thought – why not have a little fun and show how anyone, anywhere in the world, with an interest in technology can tap into and learn from this free one day conference? With a bit of help from my new best friend Canva, the ‘Should I Attend IBM z16 Day SE’ decision tree was created. Have fun with it!  

(If you prefer to read instead of going through the decision tree maze, I’ve got you covered too! See below for a short snippet of what you can get out of IBM z16 Day SE).
