How to Leverage the Top Seven Conference Tracks from IBM Enterprise


As conference season winds down and the holidays approach, I can hardly believe it’s already been over a month since IBM Enterprise. As we move into the home stretch of 2014, what are you concerned with?

Most of us are looking to meet deadlines and worrying about personal holiday arrangements, but what about a post-conference plan? After a particularly enlightening conversation with a fellow IBM Enterprise attendee, it seems there are a number of individuals out there who are indeed concerned with a follow-up plan for Enterprise. We discussed the videos available on the Enterprise landing page, which we were both aware of (there are replay videos from the conference as well as a few supplementary videos they’ve provided here). However, he was unaware of the training pathways and courses that IBM has mapped to the conference tracks available at Enterprise.

Whether you were in Power Systems University or System Z Technical University, you had your pick from a number of tracks that developed across various sessions and labs. The tracks included: Application Infrastructure and Development, Cloud and Virtualization, Mobile Computing and Social Business, Storage and Networking, Performance, Servers and Security. Each of these tracks have corresponding courses that IBM has designed to supplement and leverage learning at the conference. All of these tracks and their respective training pathways are listed below with the IBM course code and the hyperlinked course title.
