Clearing the Fog and Finding a Cloud

Ask a dozen people in the computer industry to define “cloud,” and you are likely to get almost that many different answers. Initially understood to mean a remotely located, shared system used to store files, today the “cloud” label is often used to describe just about any computing environment. Maybe the best example of that evolution is the phrase “on premise, private cloud.” That sounds a lot like an explanation of how companies have been using IBM computers for more than 40 years.

We're not a cloud provider, but we take software support very seriously. We know many IBM i customers are investigating managed service, cloud, and co-location options to meet business continuity, disaster recovery, security, infrastructure, and staffing requirements. Some are eager to use NGS-IQ as a cloud reporting and analytics solution. Many simply want someone to explain where IBM Power fits in an increasingly cloudy landscape.

To help our customers and partners answer these and other questions, we’re co-sponsoring a FREE Webinar with LightEdge Solutions on February 8, 2018. We encourage you to attend.

Spring into Action

During March and May, NGS-IQ product specialists will be traveling throughout the continental USA to attend events, meet users, and conduct tutoring sessions. We hope you’ll look for us, ask your customers if they would like to learn about NGS-IQ, or request a chance to meet with our team member privately to discuss marketing tactics. Our spring calendar is below:

RPG & DB2 Spring Summit
Embassy Suites by Hilton Dallas DFW Airport North
Grapevine, Texas
Mar 20 – 22, 2018

COMMON ‘POWERUp18’ Annual Conference & Expo
