Vision at COMMON: Day 3

May 10, 2017

Day 3 of COMMON was another busy day in Orlando for the Vision Solutions team!

Attendees were actively engaged in education programs throughout the day. Extra chairs were even required in a number of sessions to accommodate the number of interested conference-goers. Ron Peterson provided a talk in the afternoon on “Achieving Extreme Availability with Active-Active Replication,” where he introduced the audience to the use of keyed replication to create HA environments with two active servers that can be switched in seconds.

On this final day of the expo, attendees scurried from booth to booth gathering information and prizes. At the Vision booth, we rewarded our IT heroes with chair massages and suited them up with super Vision t-shirts. Partners stopped by for our final Power Talk conversations on Facebook Live. Michael Morgan, CEO of Midrange Dynamics, shared how they have integrated MIMIX technology into their MDCMS change management solution to minimize downtime. Arjon Cohen, VP of Sales and Channel Management, shared his thoughts on trends in the IBM i space around security, cloud and managed services. Review all our conversations at common at

While day 3 of COMMON marked end of the expo, education sessions are still going strong throughout Wednesday. Vision’s Barry Kirksey presents “Don’t Lose Sleep over Server Migration” at 9:30 in Grand Caribbean 8-9, providing tips and insights into how to plan a successful migration without the risk and downtime of traditional methods. In Grand Caribbean 3 at 2:00, John Gay provides insights into how to “Get Your Data Moving with Real-Time Database Replication and Transformation” for those searching for ways to move data between databases for reporting, data warehousing, and more.

Thanks, COMMON community, for a great event! Enjoy your final day of classes and the closing party at Harry Party World at Universal Studios. We’ll see you next year in San Antonio!
