COMMON 2017--It's a Wrap!

The annual meeting of the COMMON users group in Orlando wrapped up with a fun night at Universal Studio’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter world after a great week of education sessions and networking. The team from Vision Solution enjoyed meeting with IT professionals, business partners, and other solution vendors throughout the conference.

While some things about COMMON stay the same, most notably the passion for the IBM i, the hot topics change every year as attendees seek out the new knowledge they need to keep their IT infrastructure resilient, efficient and vibrant. Judging by session attendance and chatter in the expo, the trending topics at this year’s event included security, modernization and cloud services.

Vision Solutions was proud to support those themes with sessions on increasing resilience by planning today for tomorrow’s server, application and data availability requirements; modernizing your IBM i infrastructure with near-zero downtime migration; and increasing business efficiency and flexibility by providing access to real-time data when, where and how it is needed.

Another highlight of our week was Facebook Live conversations with industry influencers and Vision partners who shared their unique perspectives on COMMON and trends in the industry.

Thanks, COMMON, for a great conference. We’ll see you in the fall in St. Louis!
