IBM is delighted to invite you to the Total Solution Event for System z featuring the recently announced IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12)!

Dates and Place: Brussels, Belgium, 3.0 Days, 18 -20 September 2012

Our world is changing, and it’s doing so at a pace few of us can comprehend. We are all familiar with these changes: unprecedented global integration, increasingly smart, networked technologies and the explosion of bandwidth. Together they are making the world a smaller place, connecting the workplace and the marketplace, and enabling collaboration at new levels. Technologies are also enabling the world to become smarter, enabling businesses and society to do things better and more efficiently.

Recent IBM studies such as the Global CIO study and the IBM Global CEO study revealed to us that our business leaders expect their IT professionals to make a significant contribution to achieve the company’s business goals and to become a smarter organization.

Our CEO’s expect us to provide operational dexterity and that we embody creative leadership. Our CIO’s expect us to make technology innovation a reality and expand the business impact of IT. In this day and age we are all challenged to be more innovative to help our organization grow and compete in a changing world.

Continuous innovation and optimizing the IT infrastructure is key to remaining competitive, and the IBM zEnterprise System brings new perspectives to these requirements.

Enterprises have come to know System z as a mature and robust platform to run business critical workloads and has provided continuity to the business results of companies for decades. Now, the System z platform has evolved to a hybrid computing platform embracing Intel and POWER-based blades that run other operating systems, besides the traditional ones….and all of this virtualized.

The annually held Total Solution Event for System z is the place to be, if you want to stay informed about the latest technologies that continue to bring innovation and set the right business context. In 2012, this event will be held on Tuesday, September 18th through Thursday, September 20th, in Brussels, Belgium. This unique three-day event is free of charge for IBM clients residing in Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands.

Meet the new zEnterprise EC12!

IBM's System z server has taken another leap! With its 6-core 5.5 Ghz chip, a maximum of 101 concurrent processors, and up to 3 TB of memory, the zEC12 is the fastest and most scalable enterprise server available, with unmatched security and reliability. The zEC12 includes major innovations with a focus on achieving three key business imperatives:

  • Building intelligence into the business transaction to expand the value of the transaction, create new transactions, and improve customer service
  • Providing 24/7 availability for core business operations and a secure and stable information source for new customer-facing services
  • Delivering significant cost savings for existing operations while freeing up resources to focus on new services to drive growth

The zEC12 builds on the strengths of its predecessor, the IBM zEnterprise 196, and was designed to help overcome problems in today's IT infrastructures and provide a foundation for the future. The zEC12 also continues the evolution of integrated hybrid systems, introducing the zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) Model 003 and an updated zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager.

What we offer

Join IBM technical leaders and subject matter experts to talk about the new zEnterprise with its trusted resilience and efficiency at an enterprise scale, as well as its ability to integrate resources for operational analytics. Learn how to further optimize your IT infrastructure to drive down costs and use new functions to offer a better experience to your business users.

This year's TSE/z offers an exciting agenda that blends new enhancements in traditional System z technology with leading-edge and innovative solutions in the areas of systems management, analytics, data management, application development, and much more. The topics covered in this 3 day event will be presented by thought leaders, lead architects, and subject matter experts from the region as well as worldwide.


This event is designed for all IT professionals with a broader System z solution perspective, and especially recommended to professionals working in planning, design, architecture, and management roles. Given that zEnterprise is a hybrid computing platform including traditional System z as well as Windows, Linux and AIX operating system environments, this event will also be of interest for IT professionals who currently have responsibilities for distributed server environments.
