Letter from
Power Systems Initiative

Dear Power User Group:

Recently, I was given the opportunity to move from the field and join the Power Systems Academic Initiative (PSAI) team. I thought I would take this opportunity to share with your User Group the latest happenings of the PSAI. As the Power Brand continues to it efforts to expand our ecosystem through OpenPower, ISV and MSP growth, and PowerLinux initiatives, we are similarly increasing our ongoing investment in the PSAI. Throughout PSAI's 17 year history, we have continued to focus on the following objectives:

We currently have 67 schools teaching AIX, IBM i and Power Linux skills in North America (192 worldwide) and our goal is to double this number by 2015. These schools are very interested in partnering with our business community. We offer both entry level and professional level job boards for our clients and business partners to utilize - FREE of charge. These openings are publicized to our current member schools.

We need students to fill the pipeline of the next generation of Unix Administrators and RPG programmers. We get more students by partnering with the academic community and offering internships and jobs, serving on advisory committees helping guide curriculum and sometimes even teaching as adjunct professors.

Please share this message with your User Group. Ask them to share it with Clients, Business Partners and any Academic Institutions. Our clients and business partners need skilled individuals, our schools need students in their classes, and students need opportunities for internships and jobs. This is WIN, WIN, WIN for all involved.

You can find out more about the Power Systems Academic Initiative, including the list of participating schools and the job boards, at the link below. If anyone has any questions about the program, is interested in finding skilled talent or knows of any potential academic partners, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
