IBM iAdvocate Resources

Thanks to skilled mentors from IBM and the collective wisdom of RPG & DB2 Summiteers, we're learning that WE can positively influence the future of the IBM i - and our own careers - by proactively advocating for ourselves and our platform of choice.

In their recent Summit Keynote addresses, IBM's Ian Jarman and Steve Will have armed us with compelling data to support how IBM i - coupled with your skills - can continue to achieve your organization's business goals more efficiently and cost-effectively than other solutions.

Now at each Summit, under the skillful tutelage of Mike Cain (one of the most effective iAdvocates we know) we explore techniques to articulate our message and to get into the position to influence decision makers within our organizations.

Below are Ian's, Steve's and Mike's materials, plus other presentations, independent research studies, white papers, case studies and tips that can help you hone your own iAdvocate and career-building skills.

SAP on IBM i

  • DB2 for i and SAP Live Up to the Hype
    Architecture Matters Blog by Ron Schmerbauch
    "DB2 for IBM i is giving SAP's shiny new HANA DB platform a run for its money in the latest SAP benchmark, BW-EML. Considering this workload was specifically architected in an attempt to showcase SAP HANA against traditional databases by putting a premium on complex ad-hoc queries with random selection criteria, IBM i shows extremely well at the official SAP scoreboard for the SAP BW-EML benchmark, setting the throughput record with the most Ad-Hoc Navigation Steps per hour."

  • DB2 for i Overview
