Collaboration in the IBM i Circle

Every year Shield Advanced Solutions, attends Common’s annual event and Expo where we connect and reconnect with the Power Systems and IBM i businesses and more importantly some of the best specialized professionals in this field from around the world!



It’s inspiring to watch and listen to our colleagues! Everyone is working with different aspects of the platform each bringing something different to the table and yet we all contribute to the same big picture – professional support and services for the IBM i. Our network of colleagues include software developers, service providers, and an abundance of different software specialists all operating on IBM i.

Earlier this year we saw the launch of a an Open Source collaborative project with a team of four businesses Hamway Software Solutions, Remain Software, Secure Infrastructure and Services, and Shield Advanced Solutions, joining together to set up a shared resource for the Mid-Atlantic Group of IBM i Collaborators (MAGIC) for members to be able to work, exchange and develop on.

As the annual meeting of the newest North American User Group for IBM i approaches – MAGIC 2017 (27-29 September in Virginia Beach), we again hear of an extensive range of speakers, setting high standards for an excellent level of education, expo, and networking. Another team of prime players for the IBM i platform.

Laura Hamway’s recent blog – Overcoming IT Management Fears – IBM i references several of the same business specialists.

Relying on professionals with a trusted reputation, who are willing to collaborate with each other, means you can connect with the best services, products and experts to achieve continuity of your own business IT goals.
