To promote AIS as a global association working toward serving society, AIS and IBM have created a first-of-its kind Global Conference Partnership in conjunction with the 25 for 25 Campaign.

This Global Conference Partnership initiative connects IBM Academic programs with AIS members throughout the globe with workshops at each of our association’s major conferences, as well as the AIS Student Chapter Leadership Conference.

At AMCIS, ECIS, PACIS and ICIS IBM will feature half-day pre-conference workshops free for attendees. At AMCIS, IBM-Z – The Secret to Security, Hybrid Cloud, Open Source, IoT and DevOps will be presented on Thursday, August 15. During the workshop, attendees will learn what makes unique mainframes architecture the perfect platform for the most advanced cybersecurity, machine learning, APIs, IoT, cloud and DevOps. Attendees get hands-on with a variety of pre-packaged hands-on activities ready to use in the classroom, computing club and other events.

“We are so excited to partner with IBM and help bring real-time hands-on experience to our members,” said AIS Associate Executive Director Matt Nelson. “This partnership helps us to promote the association as a global leader for excellence in information systems research, practice and education.”
