Employees graduate from IBM training

.
This month saw two OCF employees attend IBM's Study Tour, part of the HPC Programme. The two day course was held at IBM Montpellier in France and saw pre-sales engineers Martin Ellis and Mischa van Kesteren learn the latest in IBM Technical Computing offerings.


The Study Tour, sponsored by IBM and Intel, attracted 13 individuals from 8 business partners in addition to OCF's representatives. On the first day, they gained an overview of the Technical Computing market and found out more about how IBM Platform Computing software adds value and increases time to value of clusters.  The Roadmaps session brought together Intel, IBM and Platform Computing speakers all in one place - giving participants a very good insight into the timelines and features of new product releases and updates for System x servers and Platform Computing software. It was revealed that 2013 is going to be a very exciting year for IBM Technical Computing!

Matt Ziegler, WW IBM HPC Solutions Architect - System x iDataPlex, was one of the key speakers. He shared his extensive Technical Computing and HPC knowledge with the group and explained the value IBM Technical Computing solutions bring to customers.  The second day consisted of more in depth technical topics, such as planning and configuring IBM Technical Computing Systems, which Matt Ziegler covered during the day.


Julian Fielden, OCF’s managing director strongly encourages and supports staff development. ‘It is vital to me that our staff have the knowledge to be able to create solutions to meet our customers’ needs. Technology is constantly changing so we need to ensure we are up to speed.’


Both Martin and Mischa are now planning to develop their knowledge further by completing examinations on various aspects of IBM's technical computing offering.
