From the President
In October our meeting will be hosted at IBM in Southfield. The topic is IBM i OS V7R2 updates. IBM has provided significant updates. IBM's Mary Monine will be presenting onsite. You'll want to make sure to attend and find out what V7R2 has to offer.
In November our topic is project management. More specifically author Colleen Garton will be presenting "Communications Excellence". Project management is a very important part of successful projects and should not be overlooked when planning, organizing and implementing a project. Colleen has authored several books including "Fundamentals of Technology Project Management 2nd Edition" published by MCPress.
The meeting will be provided in webinar format so you'll be able to attend onsite at Eaton Corporation or remotely through gotomeeting. For those that attend the meeting on site we will provide a copy of Colleen's book to the first 10 attendees. We're excited about the topic and also to have Colleen presenting.
A special thanks to Maxava for providing our group with a grant for the 2015/2016 year. The grant will help in funding group activities and goes a far way to helping continue to bring current and world class education to our local members.
We look forward to seeing you at the October and November user group meetings.
President Southeast Michigan iSeries User Group
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:
- Increase the awareness and education of students about Power Systems to help drive new client pipeline
- Provide educators with the resources and tools they need to teach Power Systems technology
- Help establish connections for educators to their local Power Systems business community to encourage collaboration
- Facilitate linkage of graduates and our clients regarding internships and jobs
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.
