MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - February 19, 2014) - HelpSystems, a leader in systems and network management, security, and business intelligence software, is pleased to announce the spring schedule for their popular IBM i trends and technology tour.

IBM has been rapidly releasing next generation technologies like PowerHA, IASP, VIOS, SAN, FlashCopy, and VTLs that enhance the Power Systems line of servers. As a longtime IBM Solutions Partner, HelpSystems developed the IBM i trends and technology roadshow to educate IT decision makers on best practices for leveraging these techniques in their environment for real-life, use-case scenarios.

Customers and non-customers alike have shown great interest in the topics and format the IBM i Trends & Tech Tour presents. With seven successful stops in 2013, Tom Huntington, discussion moderator and vice president of technical services at HelpSystems, anticipates continued success in 2014.

"The diversity at each event really helps me realize the versatility of IBM i and just how many different industries rely on it," says Huntington. "Customers in finance, retail, insurance, food distribution, managed service providers, manufacturing, transportation, and a few others participate. Without doubt, the valuable networking component at these events is the most exciting thing to see. Attendees love the casual atmosphere, excellent information, and free lunch!"
