Woodbury, VT - September 23, 2011 - System i Developer, the consortium of top educators on IBM i development technologies and producers of the RPG & DB2 Summit, today announced Roxanne Reynolds-Lair, CIO at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), as Keynote speaker at the RPG & DB2 Summit in St. Louis, Missouri on October 17. As 4-time recipient of the COMMON/IBM Innovation Award, Roxanne will draw on her experience to discuss Innovation from a CIO perspective as well as how to bridge the IT/Business "great divide" to achieve management buy-in for innovative ideas.

"As one the most effective CIOs in the IBM i community, Roxanne knows what it takes to cultivate a dynamic, creative IBM i development environment. A big part of that is successfully advocating for business-worthy innovation among management," says Susan Gantner, System i Developer partner.
