Rocket Software

POWERUp, the annual conference hosted by COMMON, is bringing together business leaders and IBM professionals across industries to Fort Worth, Texas, from May 20-23, for four days of education and peer networking with over 300 sessions, covering over 20 areas of IT and trends in the IBM i space.

As AI continues to reshape the way IBM i teams handle IT practices, it’s become more important than ever for IBM professionals, administrators, and developers to adapt to and leverage emerging technologies like generative AI (GenAI) to better prepare for the future. As the world’s largest association of IT professionals that focuses on IBM and related technologies, COMMON’s yearly conference offers the perfect opportunity to join fellow experts and explore new trends, topics, best practices, and use cases.

This year’s event takes place as excitement and momentum continue to build around the use of AI and GenAI within IT operations. But what does this emerging technology mean for the future of IBM i? Or for the IT professionals and developers who rely on it?
