Tapping into the New Generations 

Over the years, i-UG has striven to get some form of engagement with Students, and start some form of link that could result in a steady stream of available talent engaging with IBM i.

With the arrival of the Government supported STEM initiative, a number of i-UG Board and Committee members engaged with the scheme, became Ambassadors and through this – and some well placed relationships – we have started to grow a small ecosystem to support our main Skills and Education initiative.

In this session, we will cover: –

  • The history of our outreach to younger students
  • What we now have available
    • Ambassadors
    • POWER9
    • Off the shelf education
  • What the College/University/Government can offer
  • An example of what can be achieved
