Take the opportunity to learn more about IBM Z by checking out the session titled, Why Academics Should Care About the Mainframe: On the Value of Adding IBM Z and Enterprise Computing Courses to Your Information Systems Curriculum.
This 90-minute session will be held at 8 a.m. and again at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday the 15; providing two opportunities to attend. The session will remind attendees of the importance of mainframes, specifically the IMB Z platform. There have been many updates to the IBM Z platform particularly that have helped it evolve into extremely powerful high-end servers. Help change the false and outdated perception surrounding mainframes and their roles in IS research and business by attending this session and passing down learned knowledge to students. These students will later grow into related research activities and help make mainframe computing a regular part of the academic business IS education.
The SIG ISAP workshop on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. is also an open opportunity for learning and sharing research. The workshop will focus on helping information systems researchers and scholars interested in Asia Pacific issues to collaborate and create an open and constructive discussion of research ideas.
SIGGIS is hosting a workshop called, SIGGIS Hands-on Location Analytics Workshop Using ArcGIS, BAO and Insights. The workshop is on Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. SIGGIS wants to help introduce Web-based tools for GIS, location intelligence, business analytics and visualization to attendees. The workshop will help demonstrate how these tools can be useful when teaching in a variety of business fields. The workshop also features keynote talks and the presentation of contributed papers.
